Chelsea head coach looks to learn from Eddie Jones ahead of Saturday's match against Swansea City

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte sought to grow his tactical knowledge this week on a visit to the training base of England's rugby union side.

"It is important for me to compare my work and experience with another sport to gain inspiration and tactical ideas for the future," the Italian told after chatting with England head coach Eddie Jones. 

"I learnt about how detailed the preparation is in rugby through video analysis as well as the physical element to the sport." 

Conte could spring a tactical surprise when Swansea City visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday, with the Blues hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table to 11 points.
