Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has a warning for his rivals.
The Blues have spent much less than the two Manchester clubs in preparation for the current Premier League season. Few expected a sudden triumph after Chelsea’s horrific season, finishing in the 10th position.
“I think this season it is very important to understand that it is not always about who spends more money who wins,” Conte said on Monday afternoon.
“Otherwise, in this league, this season the name of the [top] team would not be Chelsea or Tottenham, or Arsenal or Liverpool. You understand?”
Chelsea now lead the Premier League table with Tottenham chasing them with a difference of 4 points.
