Chelsea manager Antonio Conte feels a closer look at the league table will confirm that his side are not running away with the Premier League title this season.
Antonio Conte’s men are currently on a 13-game winning run in the league and another win over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening will allow Chelsea to open up an eight-point gap at the top of the table.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has quipped that every team in the league want his side to beat Chelsea at White Hart Lane for the sake of the title race this season.
Conte admits that every team is now gunning to stop Chelsea’s run, but feels that a more minute look at the league table will reveal that the title race is still very much open.
And contrary to popular belief, Conte says his side are not running away with the Premier League title midway through the season.
Reacting to Pochettino’s remarks, the Chelsea boss said in a press conference earlier today: “This type of game gives you great motivation.
“Not only Tottenham, every team want to stop our run, but if you see the table we are just five points of second placed Liverpool and seven points off Manchester City.
“If Arsenal beat Bournemouth then six points, so the league is very much open; don’t worry, nobody is killing the Championship.”
