Tottenham Hotspur is Chelsea’s biggest rival in the race for the top four.
The race for the top-four in Premier League is high after Chelsea’s late success. Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte admits the Blues still have a chance to finish in the top four.
Chelsea overcame Leicester City 3-1 in the away game. It was club’s first away victory since October last year. Graham Potter won his third consecutive game. He had a lot of pressure on him before Chelsea’s victory over Leeds last weekend.
Chelsea have tough games ahead as they will also face Arsenal and Manchester City in Premier League. Their game against Liverpool and Man United is still left.
Tottenham Hotspur is Chelsea’s biggest rival in the race of the top four. They have won only three games out of the last six.
After his team defeated Nottingham Forest (h/t Football.London), Conte made the following statement regarding Chelsea finishing in the top four:
“You see Chelsea and what happened there and their position, but I don’t consider Chelsea outside [the top-four race]. They have the possibility of winning the last 11 or 12 games in a row because the squad is really, really strong.”
