Two months ago, Chelsea were outplayed, battered and destroyed at the Emirates Stadium, and the team put up such a poor showing that everyone wrote us out of the title race. But after 6 successive wins, Chelsea aren’t just back in the title mix, but currently sit top of the table.

This is what Conte said about that: “After two defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal, for sure it wasn’t simple to believe we would have six wins in a row, above all without conceding any goals. This league is very difficult to have success in and to win six games in a row is fantastic.

“A month-and-a-half ago, after two defeats, Chelsea wasn’t a favourite or a team that can fight for the title until the end. Now it’s very difficult to change our opinion completely. It’s hard to say our target now. I want to wait until the second half of the season.

“But I know, and the players and our fans know, that Chelsea might fight until the end for something.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
