WOLVES MANAGER INSISTS THIS PREMIER LEAGUE TEAM WILL PUSH CHELSEA ALL THE WAY IN TITLE RACE

Chelsea are eight points clear at the summit of the Premier League and are also through to the quarter finals of the FA Cup after defeating Wolves 2-0 yesterday.

Wolves manager Paul Lambert believes Antonio Conte is a fantastic manager who has got Chelsea firing on all cylinders but he expects Manchester City to push Chelsea all the way in the title race.

“They’ve got a fantastic manager. He’s relentless. He’s a good man,” said Lambert. “They’re firing on all cylinders at the moment.

“I know the league’s not over. Manchester City will have a big say in it. It’s going to be one hell of a team to stop them from taking both trophies.

“Unlucky? I don’t know if we were unlucky. For an hour, 65 minutes, we were fantastic. We probably needed George [Saville’s] goal to go in to give use something to hang on to.

“I played with world-class players, I played against world-class players and Chelsea have got that. I’m proud of my own team. We were fantastic.

“I couldn’t ask for any more. We were well in the game for 65 minutes or so. Every one of them should leave here with their head held high.”
