Antonio Conte is upholding a step by step' approach as Chelsea bid to secure the Premier League title. The Italian admits there may be no obvious answer to Saturday's shock 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace, as the Blues' 13-game winning run at home came to an end and their lead was cut to seven points.Manchester City next visit Chelsea on Wednesday, where an immediate response from Conte's men will be required.
He said “This league was not finished before this game and it's not finished now, there are nine games to play and we have to think step by step. At the end, if we deserve to win the title, we will be very happy. If someone else deserves to win the title, it means that they have played better than us. When you lose this type of game, in your mind you try to apply a lot of questions. But it's very difficult to find a reply to this result. I know Man City started the season wanting to win the title. They have a really strong squad but I think it's right to think about ourselves, to go game by game. In England, every game is very tough, whether the name of your opponent is City or another team.”
