Chelsea boss Antonio Conte commented the Boxing Day win over Brighton with these words:
“In the first half we had the right chances to score but didn’t take them,” the Italian coach said.
“For this reason it becomes difficult because your opponent stays with 10 players behind the ball.
“In the second half we settled very well and created many chances. It was a good performance with good intensity.
“It’s the same performance against Everton, against them we showed 25 times we had shots on goal but today we scored twice. We are in a good moment of form and just continue this way.”
Speaking about title race he claimed:
“This season is different to last season. Last season a lot of times we won games and were a bit lucky, like against West Brom here, Sunderland. This season sometimes we could have more luck.
“We have great respect for Manchester City because they are doing an extraordinary thing.”
