Conte: Title Race Not Yet Over

share on:

Antonio Conte has asked Chelsea forget talks of winning the title and focus on their upcoming fixtures.

Chelsea are currently top of the table and nine points clear of second placed Wenger. And Robert Pires believes Arsenal’s Title hopes will be at an end, should Chelsea get the win.

“Anything can happen,” he said. “It’s important to keep the antenna very high. If someone thinks that the league is finished, I’m not so sure.

“I want to have this tension, this right tension. In the past I fight to win the title and I know we must pay great attention. There are 15 games to play and there are a lot of great teams behind us.”

Arsenal were 3-0 up at half-time in September, prompting Conte to ditch his back four in favour of the three-man defence which was his trademark in Italy.

Chelsea have not looked back, but he said: “It’s important to remember the defeat against Arsenal. It was a bad defeat, 3-0 after the first half.

“And in my mind it’s present, it’s always present, this defeat. I hope it’s also in the mind of my players.

“A lot of things changed now. For sure we are a team. We want to have a good game tomorrow.”
