Despite Chelsea’s amazing form that have seen Chelsea top the league after winning eight consecutive Premier League games, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte claims Chelsea aren’t title favourites.
“It’s difficult to accept this (that Chelsea are title favourites), because I think we played only 14 games and we have to finish the first part of the season,” Conte said.
“There is the second part (to come). We started like an underdog this season, but it’s normal (everyone is talking about Chelsea now).
“You are playing good football, winning a lot of games. But it’s important to continue this, that after these wins we don’t lose our hunger.
“It’s always difficult to say if these (next) five games are a great opportunity. This League has already taught me it is very tough and if you don’t approach every game with great preparation, you will be in trouble.
“Sunday is the type of game we can find difficult if we don’t put the same concentration, the same focus that we had in previous games.”
