Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has suggested that Manchester United have one of the best squads in the Premier League as the two sides prepare to face each other in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
At Friday’s press conference ahead of the game, Conte said: “I am preparing to face a great team on Monday. Along with Man City, Man United have the best squad.”
“They have a lot, a number of great players, with great talent and great experience to win”.
United will however be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic who will commence his three-match ban for violent conduct against Bournemouth’s Tyrone Mings.
Conte side who are currently 10 points ahead in the race for the Premier League title has warned his Premier League leaders not to underestimate the power and quality in the United squad, even though they thrashed them 4-0 in October.
He added: “The most important thing in the build-up to a game like Monday’s is to prepare and focus on what will happen on the pitch.
