Conte excludes Chelsea from title race

Antonio Conte must stop complaining about fixture congestion and tired legs at Chelsea

Antonio Conte must stop complaining about fixture congestion and tired legs at Chelsea

Antonio Conte believes that tiredness played a key role in Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to West Ham United on Saturday (9 December) as the Italian boss lamented the number of mistakes made by his side.

Burnley are level on 28 points with Tottenham and Arsenal after beating 10-man Watford 1-0 at a wintry Turf Moor thanks to Scott Arfield's goal on the stroke of halftime.

He stayed a danger also when West Ham dropped further as well as was denied a good penalty yell when he attempted to transcend Christensen and also the round struck the Danish protector's outstretched hand.

Absolutely nothing Chelsea did was particularly negative, but neither was it that motivating - a microcosm of an uneven period where they look readied to be left defending second at best.

Huddersfield Town ended a four-game losing streak to ease into mid-table with a 2-0 victory over fellow promoted side Brighton and Hove Albion.

Chelsea are still fighting in three cup competitions, with the Blues in the EFL Cup, Champions League and yet to start their FA Cup campaign.

Chelsea fell behind after six minutes at the London Stadium as former Stoke midfielder Arnautovic curled a shot past Thibaut Courtois for his first West Ham strike.

Even if the title is gone, Conte will not want his side to end the season empty handed.

After Chelsea's fourth league defeat of the season, Antonio Conte says it's "impossible" to think Chelsea are still in the title hunt.

"In my previous experience, it won't be possible to fight for the title".

"The win, the spirit of the team, how they stuck together and more that importantly a lot of the basics were done well today - all that really pleased me", Moyes, who replaced the sacked Slaven Bilic last month, told Sky Sports. Every match is a final from now on and we need to play every match like today.

"We scored but it was an own goal".

A goal of the highest quality, West Ham ensured that they held their discipline in defence to grind out a much needed three points.

"After 16 games, if you lose four it means you never got started".
