Conte: Title Race Is Now 50-50

PFA Premier League Team of the Year Mane in Sanchez and Zlatan miss out

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte accepted Tottenham were back in the title race after suffering a potentially damaging loss at the hands of his predecessor Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea's title hopes were dented at the weekend after losing 2-0 to Manchester United with Tottenham closing the gap to just four points.

"I saw it but we can say the referee did not see it, and they played a counter-attack with the free ball and behind the line you cannot make a foul or you will get a red card", Luiz told Chelsea's official website.

"If you look at the table, 71 points with six games left is incredible".

Since the start of last season they have won 141 Premier League points - 11 more than the second-best team, Manchester City, and 16 more than Chelsea.

"For example, we were out of the Champions League in Monaco, we played three tough games against Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea, so we did not win one game but our game against Hull City, our supporters [cheering] helped us and supported us and in Italy and Spain that does not happen". We gave them problems when they had the ball because we controlled very well and we gave them problems when we recovered the ball because we were really sharp and fast and aggressive in our transitions. "I think you can see the group and the team improved a lot".

"But we are in a good moment, too, and we are hungry to challenge this type of team".

"It's always nice to find out you've broken a record. The pressure is normal and we are lucky to have the pressure", said Conte. For me if we were able to reach this target it would be a miracle. A draw is also very attractive at 4.00, but punters should expect the Gunners to win 3-1 tonight.

"We have to think that there are six finals from now until the end". Now we're focusing on fighting against our opponent when we play. We're never happy. Even today at 4-0 - we want more and more.

"The way we're playing now, with so much confidence home and away, we feel especially strong at the Lane, it's probably the best form we've been in in a couple of years".
