Chelsea boss Conte takes a surprise swipe at Tottenham

Chelsea boss Conte takes a surprise swipe at Tottenham

Chelsea will require 18 more points to win the English Premier League soccer title, manager Antonio Conte told his players after their 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Chelsea are now seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham after Spurs left it late to seal a 3-1 win at Swansea on Wednesday night.

He said: "You can see how animated Pep Guardiola is getting through the whole game". Teams are now keeping us in mind when they talk about winning the league or finishing in the top four.

"They have hard games coming up, though, so we have to keep winning and, hopefully, they get a bit stressed". I realised, okay, we have to play real, real good to win the games. I've pretty much not been there this season but I've watched the games and even the ones we've lost we've been the better team.

They have also been eliminated from the Champions League by Monaco during that period, meaning that the City manager's only realistic hope of ending his first season in England with a trophy lies with the FA Cup.

With Chelsea playing later today at Bournemouth, Tottenham have the chance to turn up the pressure again by temporarily trimming the lead to four points with a win against Watford at White Hart Lane a few hours earlier. I liked the way they played when we were there and now they have players with a lot of talent in the way they want to play.

City thrashed Steaua in a Champions League playoff in Romania in the second game of Guardiola's reign as they won their first 10 matches of the season in all competitions.

Reid back but Carroll out as West Ham prepare for Everton visit
My first manager at Crystal Palace, Arthur Rowe, always maintained that if a footballer is good enough, he's old enough. Everton will be looking for their third straight win on Saturday when they travel south to take on West Ham.

"It wasn't the most pretty game from us, but it was a very consistent performance".

"I was expecting from the beginning of the season to fight for the Premier League until the end".

Guardiola said: "Congratulations to Fabian Delph. And especially we are so polite when we win, especially that". I never came in as a manager, either at Barcelona, Bayern Munich or when I arrived here, thinking I know absolutely everything.

"I don't believe in mind games", he said.
