The Italian manager watched his side scrape out another win today against Crystal Palace as a lone Diego Costa goal settled the game.
Speaking after the win, Conte said: “The run is fantastic. Congratulations to my players, not me.
“I am pleased for them because they deserve this”
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte
“I am pleased for them because they deserve this. I see every single moment, every day.
“It is commitment, the way we prepare for the game and the way they fight.
“I am pleased for the fans who are fantastic home and away and who push us.
“We can improve though. You can always improve in different aspects. I am pleased with this level we have reached and with work we can improve.
“It is important to understand we are only at the 17th game in the season. There are two games before the half way.
“We are working very well and are in a good position. We must not look at he table and continue. We must not look at our rivals and continue work hard ourselves.”
Chelsea are guaranteed to be top of the table for Christmas and will be favourites for the Premier League title going into the new year.
