Conte shies away from Chelsea title talk

Conte shies away from Chelsea title talk

"We are very happy with the win". I am pleased to be playing this season.

Conte's side have not lost in the Premier League since he switched to a 3-4-3 system, although the Italian said it was premature to discuss them as potential champions.

"Today it wasn't very easy".

There's certainly a chance here for a massive statement of intent from Chelsea as far as our title aspirations are concerned, but as Courtois reminded earlier, it's far too early to decide such things just on one game, even if it is a clash of massive proportions. "We have to continue to work".

All three teams won over the weekend and the contest for the Premier League crown remains tight as Chelsea are a point clear of Reds and City.

Chelsea have a crunch away game against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in their next game on Saturday.

Victor Moses got the winner early in the second half as he ran onto Diego Costa's low pass and smashed it against Lloris, which ricocheted off Jan Vertonghen before going in.

Christian Eriksen fired Spurs ahead at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, but Pedro Rodriguez - with a glorious curler - and Victor Moses scored either side of half-time to give Chelsea a seventh successive league win. We are another team and I'm pleased about this, I'm pleased for the players.

We're also the only team within touching distance who actually finished in last season's top three...

"That is football. It is hard to explain, you are better and yet you lose 2-1".

"And he is playing some fantastic football for us".

'Our defending for the second goal, myself as well, we could have passed the second ball to a guy in a better position but that happens in a moment then you try to make up for it afterwards, but it wasn't to be, ' he said.

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

Spurs have had injury concerns this season, and results and performances have been disappointing.

He said: "No worry, no concern". We knew the importance of the game for our fans.

"If you analyse the whole game, I think we deserve more, minimum the draw". But, for me, I don't want to think that my players see "so long" (into the future). Just because we pay money [for someone], do they deserve to play?
