Conte not blaming board despite Chelsea's defeat to Tottenham

Tottenham's first win at Stamford Bridge since 1990 opened up a gap of eight points on Chelsea, who are languishing down in fifth place with just seven matches to play. "But if probably when Antonio Conte leaves Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, the Chelsea hot-seat is also in big danger of being an appointment far from the no-brainer it once was", Wright told The Sun, UK.

After so many years the English club and latest Premier League champions is very likely to miss the most prestigious of all clubs competition.

"I think the performance has been good, especially in the first half, ' Conte said afterwards".

"And we are doing this, and we have to try until the end to do our best".

It was all about the midfield on Sunday, as the Englishman walked away with two goals after Christian Eriksen equalised, but we must not forget those providing the more creative players with defensive stability, and, under Mauricio Pochettino, that almost always means Eric Dier.

I think we deserved to be 2-0 or 3-0. Yet I honestly believe that when club owner Roman Abramovich is scouring the world for his next manager, he may find the goalposts have moved somewhat.

There is a feeling in the camp the former Real Madrid man does not make football his priority - a big no-no for Conte who claims he works 24 hours a day.

"This is our task".

Alvaro Morata opened scoring for the Blues in the game through a Victor Moses assist, but goals from Christian Eriksen and Christian Eriksen ensured Spurs came out victorious in that encounter.

Conte had branded himself "a disaster" when persuading Chelsea's board to chase specific player signings back in February. "I'm not sure whether he is playing on adrenaline or not, but he is looking sharp and going by players easily". I think if we are in this position, we are deserving of this position. We lost a bit of confidence.
