‘After the game against Aston Villa and the day after I started to feel a bit of mild symptoms, a bit of pain in my throat and I asked to have a Covid test and it was positive,’ Conte said.
‘But now I am fine, I am well and for sure during this week was a strange week for me and the players. The players are used to doing training with me.
‘I think on Saturday I stay in my place on the bench. Given the length of time since my Covid test I think I can stay on the bench on Saturday.’
