Prior to the midweek fixture where we played against Southampton, Tottenham have been having the advantage of playing before Chelsea and they have been making good use of the advantage to put the Blues under pressure.

However, Chelsea played before Tottenham during mid-week and Spurs could only struggle to beat Crystal Palace.

Chelsea will play before Spurs this weekend, and Conte was asked in his press conference if it would be an advantage.

He said: “No, for sure at the end of the season when you have two teams in the race for the title you must have a good balance and to try to put the future in the same hour and the same day and don’t give advantage to one team or the other.

“When you arrive in the last three games and when you see there are two or three teams to fight for the title, you have to find a solution to not give an advantage to one team or another. To try to keep the same hour, the same day to rest.”
