Title race interesting, says Antonio Conte

Chelsea’s surprise defeat by Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge makes the title race “more interesting”, says Blues boss Antonio Conte.

The Premier League leaders suffered only their second home defeat of the season as Palace boosted their survival hopes with a 2-1 win.

Tottenham’s win at Burnley means they are seven points behind Chelsea.

“For (the media) it’s a good result, because it makes this more interesting in the championship,” Conte said.

“But I always said the league finishes when you have the mathematical certainty that you won. Otherwise you must fight, you must play every game to try to win.”
