Tottenham have been lucky with the fixture arrangement in recent times, as they have had to put pressure on Chelsea anytime they were to play before the Blues.
Chelsea will now have the opportunity to do same to Tottenham, as Spurs wouldn’t play until Wednesday.
A win for Chelsea will take Chelsea seven points ahead of Tottenham, pending Tottenham’s Wednesday derby clash against Crystal Palace.
Conte was asked if the pressure will be on Tottenham, but Conte wants the team to win first.
He said: “It is important for us to win and look at ourselves, but we all know that tomorrow it won’t be easy because Southampton is a very good team with a good coach and good players.”
