At the start of the season, many people tipped Manchester United and Manchester City as favourites to win the title, and after losing to Liverpool and Arsenal, many ruled out Chelsea from even making the top 4.

Chelsea are now six points clear at the top of the table, and Antonio Conte speaking ahead of Monday’s game said no one gave his side a chance.

Conte said: “At the start of the season, not one person forecast Chelsea to be at the top of the table, for many reasons – because the squad was the same as last season, because our market wasn’t great – but we found the right balance between me, my players and the club, to try to change the opinion of the people and try to have a good season.

“Now we are two games from being halfway through the season, and for this reason we must have the right pressure. Me and these players in the past have had the habit of staying top of the table, but I prefer not to look at the table in this moment. It’s not important. It’s important to look at the table at the end of the season.”

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.
