Manchester United are sixth on the table and 14 points behind Chelsea, but Conte believes they’re still in the title race.
Mourinho’s men are in very good form in the league, as they’re currently on a 15-game unbeaten run.
And even though Chelsea are nine points clear of second placed Tottenham, Conte does not think United are out of it.
He told reporters: “Honestly, I think there are six really strong teams that can fight to win the title, and we must know this.
“If we think we are very close to winning the title because we have nine points [ahead of their rivals], this is a great mistake.”
Conte was also asked about Eden Hazard’s form, with the winger scoring a superb solo goal in the win over Arsenal, and whether he can put a value on the Belgian sensation.
He added: “I’m not very good at putting prices on players. I think Eden is a great player, a top player, at a very high level.”
