"Harry is a player who has to make a difference for his quality and ability. We're talking about a world-class striker who can be dangerous in all aspects on the pitch. We tried to exploit him, to give him the possibility to score. For me, the big surprise about Harry is not only on the football aspect but the person," added Conte later during the post-match press conference.

"But, working with Harry was a bit of a surprise for me. I know he reached another significant achievement, a big personal achievement. But, we're trying to work together, with the team and always with Harry, to have personal achievements, like last season. For example, when Son was the top scorer in the league, but trying to have a big achievement together for the team and the club," Conte concluded.
