Conte: “It’s fantastic to be top of the league”

Antonio Conte couldn’t be more satisfied and happy after another outstanding performance from his Chelsea: five goals to Everton, five wins in a row, five clean sheets in a row.

An impressive run for the Blues, that now are top of the league for at least one night: if Arsenal and Spurs will draw tomorrow in the Northern London derby, Chelsea will be the only Premier League leader, otherwise they will sit on the second place, not bad, anyway.

“It was a good performance, I am pleased. I think we played good football, we created chances to score and kept a fifth clean sheet in a row,” the Italian manager said after the final whistle.

“I am pleased for the players, they were fantastic. We must continue to work hard.

Eden Hazard played an impressive game – Conte added - We all know he is a talented player, I see he is working a lot for the team and his teammates are very happy for this: he must continue, he is showing his talent in every game.

When asked about new signing Marcos Alonso, who scored the 2nd goal of the match, Conte added: “It wasn’t easy for Marcos Alonso to arrive in England, change leagues, so I am very happy for him.

“It is fantastic to be top of the league, today it was important to play and to win.”
