The two Manchester teams are everyone’s favourite for the Premier League title and their strong start to the season have seen them occupy joint first position at the top of league table.
Conte was asked in his press conference: Do you think, looking at your squad, that you have the squad to match Manchester United and City this season? Because after what happened at the weekend, some are saying that it’s a title that’s going to Manchester. Do you think Chelsea can muster the effort from the players to challenge them?
He responded: “The best way to look at ourselves, this is the best way. We have to continue to work together and continue to improve.
“You know very well the difficulty of this league, to win this league. Last season we did this. For sure, we want to try to fight until the end and I think we are a good team and we want to try to do this in the league, the Champions League, the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup.”
When asked if he expected them to start this way, Conte said: “You know very well in England there are six top teams. I think the Manchester teams are in these six teams. It is normal for United and City to be competitive and fight for the title and for the other competitions. I think it is normal.”
