Conte Downplays Record, Eyes EPL Title

By Ikenga Chronicles December 27, 2016

Chelsea Manager, Antonio Conte said he is more interested in lifting the Premier League title and not setting records of successive league victories.

The 3-0 defeat of Bournemouth on Monday makes it Chelsea’s  12 straight league win, one short of Arsenal’s single-season mark from 14 years ago.

Victory over Stoke at Stamford Bridge next weekend will set up the possibility of Conte’s side breaking the record at Tottenham Hotspur.

Conte added that he is more satisfied with his side staying clear in top spot  “If you ask me I hope to continue winning until the end of the season but, for sure, it is not easy” said Conte.

“I am pleased to see my players with great concentration and focus, with great will to fight and continue in this way.”

“To win 12 games in a row is not easy in this league. It’s a fantastic run but it’s important to continue that now.”

“For me, it’s important only for the table. With these 12 wins in a row we took 36 points and our table position is fantastic now. It’s important only for this.”

“I always thought that the record is not important if at the end you don’t reach something important in your championship.”
