The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that their side can get one up on Tottenham this season…
The Blues are currently leading the race for the Premier League title, but with Tottenham breathing down their necks, it is likely to go down to the wire.
It seems as though Antonio Conte is doing all he can to get one up on his London rivals, though, delivering a rather sly dig ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Man City this evening.
According to the Evening Standard, he said: “I think the difference between Chelsea and Tottenham is this: if you stay in Chelsea and win it’s normal”.
“If you stay in Tottenham, if you win it’s great, great, but if you lose it’s not a disaster”, he continued.
Conte is holding nothing back there! Essentially, whilst he recognises that Tottenham are a side on the up, he is also saying that the Lilywhites can afford to lose the league this season – something that Chelsea clearly can’t.
Certainly, it is going to be very tough for Conte to ensure success over Tottenham this season, with a tough game against Man City this evening. The Citizens are going well in the Premier League, and Guardiola’s unstoppable attacking line will be difficult for Antonio Conte to maintain.
T0ttenham, on the other hand, face Swansea – in a game that the London side should win. If that is the case, and Chelsea lose, their lead will be cut to just four points.
Our landlord thinks than an exciting few weeks in the Premier League await…
