Conte urges leaders Chelsea to stay 'humble'

Conte urges leaders Chelsea to stay 'humble'

Antonio Conte has done an excellent job during his first few months at Stamford Bridge, winning 10 league fixtures so far, and the Blues are now unbeaten in England's top division since September's 3-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea extended their winning run to seven games after beating London rivals Tottenham 2-1 at Stamford Bridge. The players showed a good response to Monaco, they showed the right mentality.

Tottenham Hotspur are seven points off the pace in the Premier League at the moment.

Pep Guardiola's City had usurped Chelsea at the top courtesy of a 2-1 win at Burnley, but only for a few hours as Liverpool beat Sunderland 2-0 at Anfield to climb above the Manchester club.

Left-back Alonso said: "We've got to go game by game and we will see at the end of the season".

Chelsea are looking "scary" in their pursuit of the Premier League title, according to Graeme Souness.

"On Saturday we'll have another strong team and we should not forget that against Arsenal and Liverpool we lost".

"It was an intense game for us and a deserved win at the end", said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

And the Spurs boss was proud of his team's efforts despite suffering another loss in what has been a disappointing week, following the club's exit from the Champions League.

After falling behind to an early Christian Eriksen strike, Chelsea hit back through Pedro and Victor Moses to win 2-1 and take all three points. They had one chance in the first half and scored a goal which gave them confidence.

"The second half was more like us", Cahill told Chelsea's official website.

"City are a fantastic team and for us, it is a good test", said Conte. Sometimes it can happen that the opponent starts better than you but we are talking about Spurs, not a team at the bottom of the table. "They scored [a second goal] and for us it was impossible, but I think it was a very competitive game".

Former Chelsea and Norwich City striker Sutton, though, believes that Mauricio Pochettino's side will improve.

"But if we're still playing this way, with this passion, with this energy, it's going to be tough to beat us".
