Chelsea manager Antonio Conte spoke following his side’s home win against Liverpool in a game which keeps the hope alive for the Blues. The Italian boss told journalists:
“I think we must be pleased because the players played a really good game. Usually when you have to play a must-win game it is not easy, it is normal to be nervous and today it was a must-win game but not against a simple opponent. Liverpool have reach the final of the Champions League, they are dangerous and it is impressive the way they attack, the way they defend and combination between them”.
“I think today we must be pleased and we see a great desire and will to keep the hope alive for the Champions League. I don’t know if this will be enough at the end of season, but we have to try and we have to prepare against Huddersfield, who drew against City and we want to try to get three points. I will probably make a rotation and then we will see what happens and with a great will to fight”.
Tottenham remain two points above Chelsea with only two games left to go despite losing at The Hawthorns against West Bromwich on Saturday. And Conte is confident his side can reach a target which “one month ago it was impossible to imagine.”
He added: “Now there is the hope as we are getting three points. Our opponents are dropping points. Out vision is not in our hands, but we have to try to get three points to put pressure on the teams that stay ahead of us”.
