Tevez & Llorente made the difference, says Conte

The Juventus coach has hailed his attack's contribution against Milan as the Bianconeri continued their charge towards the Serie A title
Antonio Conte feels Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente made the difference for Juventus in their 2-0 win over AC Milan.

Both strikers scored once in Sunday's encounter at San Siro to help the reigning champions to the full three points and the 44-year-old has nothing but praise for his attack.

"We didn't have many problems at all in the second half and even doubled our lead through Carlitos," Conte said at a press conference.

"He's the sort of player who the hotter the atmosphere, the more he thrives. He's at his best with his back against the wall.

"But he's not the only one. I'm thinking of Llorente, who had a wonderful match, worrying the opposition rearguard."

The Juventus coach then went on to praise Milan for their strong display and admitted the Rossoneri made life difficult for the champions before the break.

"Hopefully we won't run into any tanks in the remainder of the season. Sunday we saw half of one, given the excellent performance Milan put in. They were very bright, full of running and set a high tempo in the first half.

"Hats off to [Clarence] Seedorf and his team. Let's not forget we drew here in my first season and lost here last year, so I was worried about losing ground on our title rivals."
