Antonio Conte has named Chelsea’s main competitors for their Premier League crown, report the Mirror.
Conte knows better than most what it takes to win a league title. The Italian has won five league titles as a manager, as well as picking up five winners medals during his playing career.
Having conquered his home country he found himself seeking a new challenge, and Chelsea provided him with the opportunity. You know how the story goes, Conte won the title emphatically in his debut season in England.
Conte has now been discussing this year’s title race, which Chelsea will undoubtedly be a part of once again. The Mirror quote the 48-year-old, who names the clubs which he feels will be right in the mix come the end of the season:
“This year will be harder because the two Manchester teams, are back and there is also Tottenham, without forgetting Liverpool and Arsenal. It is really a big battle”
It’s hard to disagree with him. The two Manchester clubs in particular are looking very strong, but we should fear nothing and nobody – we are Chelsea.
