Chelsea boss Conte takes a surprise swipe at Tottenham

Emiliano Martinez Chelsea boss Conte takes a surprise swipe at Tottenham

"In this part of the season it's not easy, because the pressure is very high". It was a good win, above all because we played after a bad defeat when we didn't deserve to lose.

"This season for all my players, for me, we will remember this season if we win". If we don't do that, it will have been a good season, but not a "great" season.

The Italian manager said, "The difference between Chelsea and Tottenham is this - if you are with Chelsea and win, it's normal".

Conte, in his first season as Chelsea boss, added: "We must be focused and try to win six games and take three points".

If Chelsea do secure the title for the second time in three years, Hazard's contribution will be key.

On his part, Man City boss Pep Guardiola said to Match of the Day: "It's an honour to have the awesome players I have". I am studying English but I'm not at a great level to give great motivational talks.

"I push, sometimes with words, sometimes with my hands". Numbers now... six wins.

"As long as we keep winning then we don't have to worry".

"They know very well the situation".

He was charged with trying to recruit Americans and gathering "economic intelligence" while working at the bank's NY branch. He has since advocated for warmer ties between the US and Russian Federation . "They will be investigated and prosecuted".

Guardiola shrugged off mention of the challenge.

"I think Manchester United and Arsenal will miss out, that's my prediction", the Liverpool legend said, when asked to predict which teams would make it into the Champions League.

"He is fantastic, but he works hard for the team too and did a lot defensively, which is what we need from him". Football is also about results.

Amid the disappointment of defeat at Stamford Bridge, one significant bonus for Guardiola was the return to action of Vincent Kompany.

Pep Guardiola's City, for all their slick inter-play, are now looking anxiously over their shoulders at Arsenal and Manchester United after four games without a win. "So now we want to [get in] the Champions League places".

With eight games remaining, it will take an incredible capitulation for Chelsea to be overtaken.

While City are out of title contention, 14 points behind Chelsea, Guardiola believes Tottenham "is there".

"We will remember this season if we win".

It was yet another example of Liverpool dropping points against so-called lesser sides who'd sat back and defended for their lives against us. We congratulate Chelsea for the victory.
