Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger earlier today suggested that Chelsea are favourites to win the title this season after seeing Chelsea win 12 consecutive games.
Antonio Conte has however dismissed suggestions that Chelsea are strong favourites to win the league by insisting there are still 20 games to play this season.
Conte said: “It’s very difficult to reply to this question, we’ve played only 18 games. There are 20 to finish the season.
“At the start of the season no one coach, no one person, no one journalist, trusted in this team to fight for the title this season because we came after a bad season.
“Our market wasn’t good. But now I’m pleased that the opinion is changing.
“I’m worried because when the opinion changes quickly you must pay attention.
“We only have six points more than the second placed team.
“The way is long. But I’m pleased, for me and the players.”
