Chelsea’s 1-0 win against Crystal Palace ensured Antonio Conte became the first manager to win 14 of his first 17 Premier League matches.
Speaking about the record, Conte said: “The run is fantastic,”
“Congratulations to my players, not me.
“I am pleased with this level we have reached and with work we can improve.
“It is important to understand we are only at the 17th game in the season. There are two games before the half way.
“We are working very well and are in a good position. We must not look at the table and continue. We must not look at our rivals and continue work hard ourselves.” He told the media after the game.
