A frank Antonio Conte offered no apologies for writing off Chelsea's title challenge, saying it would be "bulls**t" to suggest otherwise due to Manchester City's awesome form. "When you tell the truth, this is the truth," the Italian said. "We had 14 points less than City. In 16 games they won 15 and drew one. In 17 games we lost four. When you have a competitor like City who are winning every game, it is difficult to think you can fight for the title because (you can see) 'a negative, a positive'...this is bulls**t, bulls**t.

"I prefer to tell the truth than a good lie. I am like this and sometimes I can be too honest, but I like to speak honestly with my players and with our fans also. "But it doesn't mean we don't want to try to catch them but we have to hope they have a big slip and for us then to win every game in this league. And it is very difficult in this league."
