Conte: Chelsea Defeat Makes Every Other Match A Must Win


Antonio Conte admitted the Premier League title race is interesting again after his Chelsea side were beaten 2-1 by Crystal Palace.

Chelsea’s 13-game winning run at home came to a shuddering halt as Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke scored within three minutes after Cesc Fabregas had opened the scoring.

Chelsea are now seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham with nine games to play, beginning with Wednesday’s clash with rivals Manchester City. Still they need 21 points to win the title.

“For sure, for you (the media) it’s a good result, because (it) makes this more interesting in the championship,” Conte said.

“But I always said the league finishes when you have the mathematical (certainty) that you won.

“Otherwise you must fight, you must play every game to try to win.

“In England it doesn’t exist an easy game. Every game will be very tough, from now until the end, also if the team name is Manchester City or a team that is fighting for the relegation zone.”
