The disappointing defeat, at the hands of West Ham United, on Saturday, sounded the death knell on Chelsea`s hope of retaining the title they won last season.

Now some might say it might be a little too early to throw in the towel but when the boss himself concedes the title has gone, then it`s hard to argue.

Following the 1-0 defeat, at the London Stadium, Antonio Conte had this to say to the media,

‘If you want to stay in the race you need continuity in results. This is not our case. If you lose four games in 16 you’re not in the race.

‘We have a lot of reason to justify the result against Manchester City – we played after two days.

‘When you lose against Palace, when they are bottom of the table, and lose again against West Ham when they are in a bad position – if you lose points in these games, you are not in the title race.

‘You have to change. We have to do our best this season, but this season I said it would be very difficult. This is the truth.’

It looks like it`s time to concentrate on the cups then if we`re looking to win some silverware this season!
