When you have this task, it is impossible to think that you are in the title race.”It is impossible. My experience is this, if you want to stay in the race for the title, in the first part of the season you can lose once, twice.”For Conte, there was no doubt about what Chelsea’s problems were, ruing their wastefulness after starting “badly”.He said: “We lost the game against West Ham, it was very because we started badly and conceded this goal and it was difficult to come back. I saw the same game against Manchester City, where Manchester City attacked for the whole game against the whole team behind the ball. “But City found a way to score. Instead we created the chances but didn’t take them. Now we are talking about the defeat. Many players were tired. It is normal when you play in a few days. We started our pre-season with the same players, a lot are playing almost always, and for sure you have to pay something for this.”
