Manchester City and their neighbours Manchester United have been in brilliant form this season, and this has been the typical form of clubs managed by the duo of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho.
Their current performance suggests that the premier league title will go to Manchester, but Chelsea manager Antonio Conte whose team are three points adrift the Manchester clubs believes that it is a normal trend to have the two clubs on top.
Antonio Conte was quoted by Mirror Sport to say: “You know very well that, in England, there are six top teams.” he said. “Manchester’s teams are in these six teams. It’s normal.
“It’s normal for United and City to be competitive and to fight for the title and the other competitions. It’s normal. My idea of football is to be a team, and then the team try to extract the characteristics of the individual players.
However, the Chelsea boss was also quick to observe that his side has faced a difficult situation since the begin of this season. Hazard and Pedro are recovering from injuries, Cahill has three games suspension and now David Luiz.
“When you are a team, you can face this type of situation in the right way. I’m sure about this. But now it’s not important. We have to stay there and try and do our best. At the end of the season, we’ll see what happens.” Conte said.
