Conte: "I always tell my players to be focused on the game."

Conte happy with players behaviour.

Antonio Conte says he was happy to see his Chelsea players control their temper during the late flare-up in Saturday's 3-1 Premier League win over Manchester City.

David Luiz was heavily tackled by Sergio Aguero during stoppage time, resulting in a conflict involving a couple of players from Chelsea and City.

Referee Anthony Taylor showed Aguero a Red card for his foul on Luis, and also sent off Fernandinho for shoving Cesc Fabregas during the fracas.

Conte was delighted none of his players were sent off.

"The final [stage] was not good. I just hope David Luiz is not injured after this tackle," Conte told Chelsea TV.

"It is very difficult to explain this final part of the game. I support the referee. It is important that the referee whistles and we finish.

"I'm happy because I always tell my players to be focused on the game on the pitch and always to keep calm.

"It is normal when you play these big games it is not easy to keep calm in every single moment, but I am pleased because all my players tried to keep calm."
