"I think if you talk about the title, it is not right because we have to improve a lot and we have a long way in front of us," Conte said.

"After this type of game we have to wait, to speak, to not write things (in the media). It's important to stay humble. After this type of game, because we won a game against a strong team. On Saturday we'll have another strong team and don't forget that we lost against against Arsenal and Liverpool," he addded.
