Chelsea lost to Liverpool 2-1 at Stamford back in September, and the Blues were well beaten and battered in the next game against Arsenal, as we left the Emirates Stadium with a 3-0 loss.

It was a sad period for Chelsea Football Club, but it was one the team learnt so much from, Conte has revealed.

Since losing to Arsenal, Chelsea have become so dominant in the league that the Blues have only lost one league game ever since.

The Italian revealed that there was so much to learn from those losses. He told Chelsea pitch owners: “When you win 13 games in a row, it seems that you increase your confidence, then send a bad message to your rivals. If you stay behind, and you see every game the other team wins, you put a lot of pressure on teams that want to fight for the title with us. It was important overall for us to win 13 games in a row to increase the confidence, to forget two bad defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal. But I think also it’s important not to forget totally the two defeats, because when you lose the game you can learn a lot. And I think we learnt a lot.”

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.
