Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is really satisfied after obtaining the seven win in a row in the Premier League, three points that let his team stay on the top of the league before going to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City next weekend:
“I’m satisfied because this type of game is very difficult,” Conte told BT Sport.
“We played against a very strong team, a tough game with high intensity.
“Tottenham started very well, then there was our reaction and I’m happy for this because it’s not easy to go 1-0 down at home in this type of game. Now it’s important to continue to work.”
The Italian manager praised the two goalscorers, Pedro and Moses:
“Pedro played a good game, a good performance and also scored a great goal with great finish. He must continue in this way and he deserves to play, to start in the XI, but now it’s important to continue this way.
“Victor [Moses] is a good player. I saw him during the preseason and I wanted to keep him in the squad. Now it’s the same as Pedro. He deserves to play and he’s playing fantastic football. For us he’s very important.”
Speaking about the title race and the chances to win the Premier League he said:
“It’s too early [to talk about the title], above all after this game, because this league is very tough.
“Today Tottenham showed that in this league there are six, seven teams who can win the title. For us it’s important to continue this way to improve the confidence.
“It’s not easy when you go 1-0 down to have a good reaction against a tough team. For this reason I’m pleased but it’s important to think of the next game.”
