Antonio Conte says Chelsea are six wins from the Premier League title

Antonio Conte says Chelsea are six wins from the Premier League title

Hazard has his penalty saved before scoring their second goal from the rebound.

The Italian boss has been in a bitter war of words with Mauricio Pochettino this week with the Spurs manager landing the most recent blow by saying that Chelsea will be distraught if they fail to secure their sixth Premier League title.

City's last lingering hopes of the title were ended on Wednesday with a 2-1 defeat at leaders Chelsea.

He said: "They won't with eight or nine players - they will play with 11, like us".

Chelsea fitness coach Paolo Bertelli allegedly told Man City masseur "we f**** you up the a***" in the ill-tempered tunnel row on Wednesday night. We are in a position where we need to do our job, win games and put pressure on them.

Midfielder Fabian Delph wants an undefeated run in the remaining eight games.

He has also never finished outside the top two of his domestic league - and City now sit fourth.

His side were outplayed in the first half, but forced Chelsea to defend stoically in the second as they piled on the pressure in search of an equaliser.

"But after drawing against Everton and Middlesbrough I realised we had to play really well to win". "We have come a long way since I arrived, but I keep stressing to the players that we have achieved nothing yet in our battle to be out of the bottom three at the end of the season".

'We have to be honest with ourselves, we were not good enough to compete for the Premier League'. However, we were keenly efficient with the chances created, while the visitors were mostly wasteful. "It is insane how the goals came in the last few minutes but we pushed and we created chances to win".

"Everybody makes mistakes - me, the players and the troupe for Mike Riley".

"Still we have a lot of handsome things to fight for - to qualify for the Champions League is so important and would be a huge success, and we have the semi-finals of the FA Cup".

David Luiz gave an interview to ESPN Brasil after the match, and said things are perfectly normal between them: "I am fully aware of what I do, of the career I have".

"We have to work harder and better to minimise these kind of things and improve the way we play, especially in the big games". Liverpool were hit by a late sucker punch as Bournemouth snatched a 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Tottenham have not won the league since 1961.
