Even though Tottenham are Chelsea’s closest rival in the Premier League title race, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte gave Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino a timely reminder that the expectations at Chelsea is bigger than the expectations at Tottenham.
“I think the difference between Chelsea and Tottenham is this: if you stay in Chelsea and win it’s normal,” Conte said.
“If you stay in Tottenham, if you win it’s great, great, but if you lose… it’s not a disaster, no? Not a disaster.
“Because you find a lot of situations to explain a good season. But, I repeat, in this season, us and Tottenham stay in the same level. Chelsea were underdogs at the start of the season, but now we are top and we want to keep this position.”
