And don’t forget, in the last nine games, we won seven games, drew against Liverpool and lost to West Ham.“Our path is a great path. But there is a team [Manchester City] and it is very hard to stop them.”The reigning champions have suffered four defeats this season, one fewer than their five losses in the last campaign, and have focused their efforts on securing Champions League qualification.Chelsea travelled to a Huddersfield side who had picked up three victories in their previous four home fixtures in the lead up to the clash.And Conte took particular delight with a dominant performance at the Kirklees Stadium against David Wagner’s side.“From the start I had a good response from my players,” Conte added.“When you see this type of football; we must be pleased. I think my players enjoyed tonight because we had a lot of possession but also created the chances to score.“The only negative was to concede a goal at the end of the game.”last_img read more
