Antonio Conte relaxed about record-chasing Chelsea being target of jealousy

Last Updated: January 4, 2017

Antonio Conte is absolutely sure that his Chelsea can easily win the match on Wednesday. The recent and stable success of the F.C. explains why most people want Tottenham to win Wednesday night’s derby clash.

Chelsea’s management can be proud of the football club’s achievement, 13 wins in a row – above all now in this league, with these players and these coaches. Chelsea were taken apart by the pace of Liverpool and Arsenal before Antonio Conte switched to his successful back three.

But even since the change and the turnaround in form, Conte’s team have looked vulnerable against genuine pace. Full-backs Danny Rose and Kyle Walker could be key for Spurs if they can get forwards.

“Don’t worry about this, about the other teams, about the fans. Not one person wants to kill the championship,”

said Conte.

Conte believes Spurs are stronger than last season, mainly due to the addition of midfielder Victor Wanyama and having more time to gel under Pochettino, who “is showing he can be one of the best coaches in the world”.

He added:

“There is this difference in the table only because we did an incredible run. I consider Tottenham to be a great team, very strong.”
