Antonio Conte before the game press conference:
“For sure, we are talking about a club with a lot of history, and it will be an exciting game,” said Antonio. “Nottingham Forest fans are very passionate, and we know we will find a lot of noise during the game, but we have to be prepared to face every situation.
“The atmosphere will be really good, and we have to enjoy that and play our football. We have to go into the game in the right mind. Every game is very difficult, but it doesn’t mean that you don’t fight for the three points and try to get the win. Our mentality, our hearts, our desire has to be to play every game to get the best.”
