In the last season Chelsea finished 10th in Premier League and Conte has seen a great improvement in results and they are on the top of the table ranking after playing 13 matches in this campaign.There was sadness and crying everywhere around when Chelsea was beaten up by Liverpool and Arsenal in September and it has been in the memory of Conte. Later this Saturday they faced Manchester City and won by seven straight league.
Chelsea had to dig deep to rally from an early loss and beat Tottenham last weekend and now they face a tough challenge at the Etihad Stadium, City had only won three home games, out of six in the league of this season. Conte does not think those who questioned Chelsea’s title chances can still be doing so after they begin on their seven-game winning race seeing them score 19 goals.
Conte says, ” i still remember in my first press conference not many people believed and trusted Chelsea, in their work. I think this must be great strength and opportunity for us to continue to work and to change people’s opinions.”
” We play for this club, for the people, for our fans, for our tshirt and show how much we love our club. the expectation is always high,if you are a great team like Chelsea, and you play or are the manager of this great team.”
He further added that,”its sometime good to be high, sometime you need to wait, because you building something important and want the sweetness of it. We want to show we are working very hard and we are growing, Saturday is another step to see if something has changed compared to the start of the season.”
Now its important for team to work hard and show that, Chelsea can fight for a place in the Champions League, Chelsea can fight for the title, and Chelsea can also fight and compete with the best teams of the league.
