Chelsea marched on to win the Premier League title last season, and the Blues only lost three games in the league all season.
However, the Blues are experiencing a much different season this campaign, as Conte’s men have already lost four times in the league this season, and the campaign haven’t yet gone half.
Conte is unhappy with the losses that his team suffered at the start of the season, especially the opening day defeat to Burnley. He told the press after today’s defeat to West Ham: “After 16 games if you lose four games it means you never started this race. We started with a defeat in our home game against Burnley. We lost another game. We have a lot of reasons to justify the defeat against Man City because we played after two days.
“But then you lose against Crystal Palace at the bottom and now to lose again against West Ham who at this moment are in a bad position in the table, you can’t lose points in these games.
“It means you are not in the title race. You have to change, to do our best in this season. I said before this season would be very, very tough, very difficult and this is the truth.”
