Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: Why I subbed Tiemoue Bakayoko at half-time against West Ham


Bakayoko was replaced by Pedro at the break during Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to the Hammers.
The French midfielder has struggled for form in recent weeks and yesterday will no doubt knock his confidence.
But Blues boss Conte insists the 23-year-old performed well before he was taken off.
He said: “It was a tactical decision.

Bakayoko was playing a good game but when you find 11 players behind the ball and you are losing 1-0, it’s important to change something.
“Pedro has different characteristics to Bakayoko, he’s better one-versus-one and he has good technical qualities. Bakayoko satisfied me with his performance."

Conte conceded that Chelsea are now out of the title race following their defeat to the Hammers.
He added: “To speak about the title race after a defeat is a bit strange, especially if this is the fourth defeat of the season, after 16 games.
“When you have that it’s impossible to think you are in the race, my experience tells me if you want to stay in the race in the first part of the season you can lose once or twice.
“After 16 games, if you lose four it means you never got started.

“We started with a defeat at home to Burnley. We lost another game, against Man City, but we have reasons to justify that.
“Then when you lose to Crystal Palace, who were bottom, and West Ham, who are in a bad position, you can lose points in these games but it means you are not in the title race.”
