History has it that Chelsea are on course to win the league this season. On the four occasions Chelsea have been top of the league by Christmas, Chelsea have gone on to win the league.
Chelsea will surely be league leaders come Christmas, but Antonio Conte doesn’t want to be carried away by such stats.
The Chelsea manager said: “I don’t like stats,”
“I prefer not to read them because you find a story. You have to write the new story. History doesn’t matter, above all this season. We started without great ambition from the people. This season is very difficult for us, but until now we are doing very well and we are a great surprise for many people. Now it’s important to continue to be this great surprise.”
