It will be a miracle if Chelsea wins the league – Conte

Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte, has claimed that they have a 50-50 chance of winning the Premier League, following their 2-0 loss at Manchester United.

Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera scored for Jose Mourinho’s team, as they cut the Blues’ lead at the top to just four points.

Although second-placed Tottenham Hotspur have a tougher run on paper, Conte says there is nothing between the two teams.

“We lost two games. The two games were totally different – we didn’t deserve to lose against Palace – but today [Sunday] we deserved to lose,” he told a post-match news conference.

“There are six finals until now and the end. The league is open. We have a 50 per cent probability of winning the league.

“The pressure is normal – I prefer to have the pressure rather than not fight for the title and to joke in every moment.

“We are lucky to have the pressure. Last season Chelsea had no pressure as they were 10th place.

“Something important is happening this season. We are doing a quick job, a miracle this season considering the problems last season.

“For us it is a fantastic target. For me if we were able to reach this target it would be a miracle. We must understand this and find the right motivation.

“We stay in a great position, but Tottenham are in good form and playing very well and with enthusiasm. We must have the same.”
