Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said it was "too early" to talk about the Premier League title after his team recaptured the summit by beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Saturday.
Christian Eriksen scored his first goal of the season this past Saturday at Stamford Bridge, Tottenham's only goal in a 2-1 loss to Chelsea.
I was in a good position and I took the chance and profited from it but it takes away from the glory when we end up losing.
"This was a big test because, for sure Tottenham is a really good team, with a great organisation and I think today they started, better than us". They pushed us and supported us a lot during the game.
The victory was Chelsea's seventh on the spin in the Premier League and kept them one point clear of Liverpool at the top of the table. "We are very happy with the win". "We have to improve and we have a long way ahead".
It ended a hard week for the north London side in which they were knockout out of the Champions League, and they are now four points behind the top four, and seven behind Premier League leaders Chelsea. "We want to keep going like this".
"Above all after this type of game we have to wait, to speak, to not write things (in the media)".Читайте также: Philip Morris CEO looks towards phasing out cigarettes
He said: "I accept crIticism, but I have no regrets about changes to the team".
Asked if City are the team Chelsea must finish above to lift the title, Hazard told reporters: "Man City and Liverpool".
Conte's energetic and passionate reactions at the dugout, as well as the players greeting the fans with a wide smile on their face after the final whistle, certainly sums up the value of the victory.
Even in the first half Moses was one of the only Chelsea players with a sense of urgency despite a lack of end product, which was rectified with his 51st-minute goal. Tottenham's coach Pochettino said "We competed very well and we were a bit unlucky to concede 1-1 at half-time".
The Blues are now top of the Premier League table after winning each of their last seven games, conceding just one goal - a Christian Eriksen drive - in the process.
After finishing 10th in a miserable 2015-16 season, Chelsea are not in the Champions League or Europa League this time around - unlike the majority of their rivals for domestic glory. It's not easy when you go 1-0 down to have a good reaction against a tough team.
The Blues are unbeaten since September and will be hoping to maintain their run at Manchester City this weekend. "The manager gave me an opportunity to express myself and I'm relishing it at the moment".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
