The Blues boss saw his side stunned by Crystal Palace on Saturday to reduce the gap between the leaders and second-placed Spurs to seven points.

Victories for City at Stamford Bridge and Spurs at Swansea would reduce that gap to just four points.

All of Chelsea’s defeats in the League this season have come in London.

But Conte said: “At this moment, I’m pleased with my players. I’m seeing, always, great commitment from my players.

“It can happen. You can lose the game. But we didn’t deserve to win the game against Crystal Palace. But football is wonderful also for this type of result. And tomorrow we’ll have another game.”

Conte celebrates a year since he was confirmed as Blues boss by the club’s hierarchy.

He admitted he is delighted to have lived up to their hopes of a title challenge 12 months on.
