Antonio Conte on Premier League title race

Antonio Conte coaches Chelsea versus Leicester in the Premier League

Boss Conte admitted: "I see the commitment every day but to defend the title, to win two titles in a row, is very hard".

"Juventus won the title against a really strong team like AC Milan [in 2011-12] but then the next summer they sold Thiago Silva and [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic [to Paris Saint-Germain]".

"It wasn't simple second time but it was easier". Having said that, the Blues have played three title contenders in their first seven fixtures, emerging with a far from disastrous four points, and maybe they can fill their boots against lesser teams, while ManUre finally have to cope with some hard opponents. Now after a great transfer market they have improved a lot.

Chelsea will now assess the seriousness of the problem before their trip to Crystal Palace in their next Premier League game after the global break.

No team has retained the top-flight trophy since Manchester united won it three times in a row from 2006 to 2008.

Morata started Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday (30 September) but was forced off and replaced by Willian in the 35 minute.

With global fixtures dominating the next fortnight, the Blues are next in action when we face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on 14 October, and Conte feels it is important not to dwell too much on Saturday's defeat.

"But at the same time sometimes you have to compliment your opponent". We have to try our best, with great ambition. "You have to be honest and accept the result".

The Blues won the league by seven points last term but appear set for a sterner challenge during the 2017-18 campaign. This season we have to try to do our best and have great satisfaction.

"I don't think it's a serious problem because he stopped". You have to try not to put your players in difficulty, but you also take a risk [by not playing them] because Moses is an important player for us. It won't be easy, but last season wasn't easy either.
