Conte: Title Race Is Now 50-50

share on:

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has shouldered the blame for the 2-0 away loss suffered by the premier league leaders.

Rashford and Ander Herrera scored the goals in the Old Trafford game, and Conte believes the title is now a 50-50 shot.

Conte told Sky Sports: “I think they deserved to win. They showed more desire than us and more motivation, but in this case the fault is with the coach.

“In this case I wasn’t able to transfer the right motivation to play this type of game.”

“We lost two games. The two games were totally different – we didn’t deserve to lose against [Crystal] Palace – today we deserved to lose. There are six finals until now and the end. The league is open. We have a 50 per cent probability of winning the league.

“The pressure is normal – I prefer to have the pressure rather than not fight for the title and to joke in very moment. We are lucky to have the pressure – last season Chelsea had no pressure as they were 10th place.

“Something important is happening this season. We are doing a quick job, a miracle this season considering the problems last season.”

He added: “I am concerned, we have to work together and find quickly the right desire and ambition to win this title.

“For us it is a fantastic target. For me if we were able to reach this target it would be a miracle. We must understand this and find the right motivation.

“We stay in a great position, but Tottenham are in good form and playing very well and with enthusiasm. We must have the same.”
