Antonio Conte targets 18 points to Premier League title for Chelsea

Chelsea maintained their 7 point lead at the top of the premier league table on Wednesday when they defeated Manchester City at the Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea's lead was cut to seven points after they lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace at the weekend, but they preserved their advantage over Tottenham Hotspur by seeing off City.

"On the other hand, we've still scored the most goals in the Premier League so far, so it's part of the game that we try to create moments all the time".

Thus, many Tottenham supporters took to Twitter to marvel in the Dutchman's game-changing display last night...

It came after their 3-1 win over City at the Etihad back in December.

"We are almost there but there is a long way to go". Maybe last season, we wouldn't have won that game from that position.

"Chelsea is looking very strong but we can't stop pushing and dreaming of the league", Vertonghen said. "I think we are playing a great season but to win the title there is a long way to go".

Clichy also said that protests aimed at Wenger's removal are part and parcel of the game, even if he does not agree with them. There's time to improve", said Guardiola. "We still have everything left to play for".

Goals from Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi appeared to have put the hosts on course to open up a six-point gap on fourth-placed Manchester City.

Said with that trademark grin, Luiz's comments highlight just how good the team spirit at Stamford Bridge has been this season, which is a far contrast to how it was past year under Jose Mourinho.

Guardiola, who felt City's performance was better than in Sunday's draw at Arsenal, said: "Absolutely (City were better than Chelsea)".

Tottenham could win all eight games.

But Tottenham, without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who withdrew late through illness, salvaged three points thanks to dramatic late strikes in the 88th, 91st and 94th minutes. For this reason we need to get 18 points to win the title. I don't know what's necessary to win the league - maybe a bit of luck, I don't know.
