Speaking after the 1-0 defeat to West Ham during the weekend, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte conceded that he had lost hope in the title race.
Manchester City are in formidable form and have only dropped points once this season – a 1-1 draw against Everton.
In his post match press conference, Conte insisted that he isn’t thinking of City but is taking each game as it comes.
“When you have a team that have 16 games and 15 wins and draw one game it is not simple to think in a positive,” Conte admitted.
“In the last 9 games we won seven games, drew and lost one games but despite this we are now 11 points and they play tomorrow so the distance might be 14 points.
“They are having a fantastic path but we must go game by game, there are six teams to fight for the title and the Champions League and we have to look to improve and have this type of game and I enjoyed to watch them play like this.”
