Since taking over the managerial hot-seat, at Stamford Bridge, Antonio Conte has been a revelation.

The manner in which he goes about is business is to be applauded, I can`t recall a season whereby Chelsea have featured less in the tabloid press for stories that see a black cloud hovering over SW6.

When he first arrived, Conte took stock of what the team had to offer before deciding, quite rightly, things had to change.

Successive defeat at the hands of Liverpool (h) and Arsenal (a) saw Conte ditch the famous back-four and opt for a back-three assisted by wing-backs.

From that moment Chelsea have never looked back.

But what would it mean to the Italian to win the Premier League after having tasted title success with the mighty Juventus earlier in his career?

Well it seems that Conte would classify it as the greatest achievement of his career with the Italian remarking to the media ahead of our clash with Southampton tonight,

“Yes, for sure. For me, for the players, for the club.

“I think this season it`s very important to understand it is not always about who spends more money who wins.

“Otherwise, this season the name of the team would not be Chelsea or Tottenham or Arsenal or Liverpool.

“I think to win the title now in England is a great achievement.

“It is a top achievement for the coach, players and the club.

“To do it in England these days is not easy. To win the league is difficult.

“I repeat, we must be proud of our work.”

Indeed, we must, but let`s not fall at the final fence eh!
