The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are loving life under Antonio Conte, and it would appear as though even the Italian has been surprised at how well he has done this season…
Conte has recently been discussing the Premier League title race, and the Italian has thrown some shade towards Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham – by suggesting that the Lilywhites were in a better position to win the Premier League this season.
According to the Guardian, he said: “I think if you compare Tottenham Hotspur with Chelsea, they had an advantage this season”.
Elaborating, he added: “Mauricio Pochettino is a really good manager and is working with his team for a third year. Last season, they fought to win the title and Chelsea arrived 10th”.
Certainly, whilst Conte is clearly showing Tottenham a lot of respect, it seems as though he is also trying to highlight just how well the Blues have done to move past the London-based outfit. Of course, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern wouldn’t have dreamt of winning the Premier League title at the start of the season, though that mindset has certainly changed now.
Of course, Chelsea can win the title on Friday if they win against Middlesbrough this evening. The Blues in the pub are desperate to see their side do it.
