Conte excludes Chelsea from title race

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: Why I subbed Tiemoue Bakayoko at half-time against West Ham Antonio Conte rues tiredness and explains Bakayoko substitution after Chelsea's defeat at West Ham

"I saw their game against Manchester City, when City attacked for the whole game against 11 defenders but they found a way to score, we created chances but didn't take them and so we are talking about a defeat".

Chelsea are still fighting in three cup competitions, with the Blues in the EFL Cup, Champions League and yet to start their FA Cup campaign. "After 16 games, if you lose four, it means you never started this race", said Conte.

"My experience is this, if you want to stay in the race for the title, in the first part of the season you can lose once, twice".

Chelsea failed to attempt a single shot on target in the second half against the Hammers, despite having 71 percent of possession after the interval and Law believes sides are finding more ways to nullify the strengths of Conte's men after a fourth league defeat of the season. "Then when you lose to Crystal Palace, who were bottom, and West Ham, who are in a bad position, you can lose points in these games but it means you are not in the title race".

The Blues went into the game eleven points behind Manchester City and hoped to make up the difference against West Ham, a team that had lost four of their last five games in the league.

"I repeat, we have our target to try to play for one of the four places in next season's Champions League".

Slamming Conte for using fatigue as an excuse, he said: "In terms of fixtures, they had it easier previous year with no Champions League".

It was Spurs' fourth successive four-goal win over Stoke, making Mauricio Pochettino's side the first team to have won by four goals in four consecutive English top-flight meetings with the same opponents.

'But we had plenty of time to get back into the game but that laboured start carried on throughout the game'. "We are a team and we must improve as a team". We started with a defeat at home to Burnley.

Many players were exhausted which is normal when you play every three days.
