Antonio Conte Praises Under-Pressure Performance against West Ham

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has praised his team’s attitude in the 2-1 win over West Ham on Monday night.

Gylfi Sigurdsson Vital to Swansea, Says Bob Bradley

Swansea City manager Bob Bradley has branded attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson as vital to the club.


The Icelandic international has been one of the club’s best players since the £10 million move from Tottenham a few years ago. He was signed by the Welsh outfit after he impressed a lot while on loan spell in the 2011-12 campaign. The investment in the 28-year-old has certainly not gone down the drain. In fact, it has been one of the best investments made by Swansea. Bradley has seen the player contribute 10 goals in his last 15 games either through goals or assists.
