Our advantage at the top of the table was reduced to four points after our loss to Manchester United on Sunday.

Chelsea remain favourites to win the Premier League this season despite 2-0 loss to Manchester United as we hold a four-point advantage over Tottenham and  have a favourable run-in compared to Tottenham.

However, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte believes the title race has become a 50-50 tussle.

“We lost two games. The two games were totally different – we didn’t deserve to lose against [Crystal] Palace – today we deserved to lose,” Conte told Sky Sports.

“There are six finals until now and the end. The league is open. We have a 50 per cent probability of winning the league.

“The pressure is normal – I prefer to have the pressure rather than not fight for the title and to joke in very moment.

“We are lucky to have the pressure – last season Chelsea had no pressure as they were 10th place.

“Something important is happening this season. We are doing a quick job, a miracle this season considering the problems last season.”
