Chelsea are 12 points clear of Arsenal after the 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge earlier today but while many will feel the title race is over, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte believes there are still 14 games to play and lots of points to take.
“No,” Conte replied when asked if the title race is over. “Because there are 14 games to play and there are lots of points to take.
“For sure, today it was important to win against a rival. When you have this type of situation you must exploit it. But Arsenal showed us they are a great team with great players.
“If you don’t play with good talent and with a good will to work together offensively and defensively, there’s a risk you’ll lose.
“I’m pleased because they showed me great commitment to fight and try and win this game. It was very important to face two tough teams in Liverpool and Arsenal.
“Now we celebrate this win. But from tomorrow, we must think about the next game.”
