Pep Guardiola has stated that the league is firmly in Chelsea’s hand and they’re to blame if they let if slip, despite the 4-0 win over West Ham.
Jesus scored a goal and assisted one in the first half against a West Ham side they beat 5-0 in the FA Cup.
Conte was in the stands to watch the proceedings, but Guardiola doesn’t think City can catch them, as they’re ten points behind.
“He doesn’t have to be too worried because Chelsea are nine points ahead [of anyone else],” Guardiola said at his post-match media conference.
“Only they can lose the Premier League. The gap [to Chelsea] is too big, but we will until the last day be fighting to qualify for the Champions League.
“All the teams around us are so strong but we want to be up there with them.”
Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva also scored for City, with Yaya Toure adding a fourth from the penalty spot in the second half as Guardiola celebrated only a second league win in five attempts.
He said: “The main difference in this game was the first time we had a chance to score, we took it and the second time we had a chance to score, we took it.
“After that the game wasn’t over, but it was easier. We are still far away from the perfect, perfect performance.
“West Ham arrived in a good moment so of course, we are very happy. We won 3-0 on Saturday [in the FA Cup against Crystal Palace] then 4-0 here away from home and we were quite solid.
“We worked well with and without the ball and our three guys up front are so, so quick. We created a lot of chances too, so I am happy.”
