Earlier in the day, before Chelsea’s game against Leicester City, two of our title rivals won emphatically. Tottenham started the day with a 4-0 win against West Brom, while Arsenal won Swansea 4-0. The other three rivals play tomorrow, and Conte talked about the pressure of playing after such victories.
He said: “Now, we started the second part of the season, we played the second game. Every game now the points are very heavy for all the teams. We stay on the top of the table and if you win you put pressure on the other teams.
“We started this game with great pressure after the Tottenham and Arsenal victories. We must show good experience to manage this situation. In every game it will be very important to not lose points.”
