- Anything anti-Dipper
It was Conte's first season and City on paper had the better side. All the bookies, most posters and media at the start of the season agreed. In fact up until he switch formations everyone thought Chelsea were no where near the title.To be fair, that was Peps first season with City where he got only 78 points. Spurs even finished ahead of them that season.
Since then they average 91 points a season. Bit of a difference.
On paper City had a better side and it was also Conte's first season outside of Italy/International football.In Pep's first season, City didn't have a better team than Chelsea IMO.
Chelsea wasn't also playing the CL or Europa league that season, so they focused on the PL.
As I said, my point isn't who is the better manager overall; I would pick Klopp and Pep over Conte in that regard. However, in certain situations I believe Conte to be the better manager and that whilst some people complain that he is over rated, I also hold the view he is under rated by some as he is a marmite type manager.
