Antonio Conte has once again stated that Tottenham has a better structure than Chelsea, ahead of the London derby at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte has yet again made this statement suggesting that Spurs are still leading their west London rivals in terms of their “project”.
Further, the Italian manager also added that his summer signing Alvaro Morata did not need the Giroud signing as a push to end his goal-scoring drought.
Back in August when the two teams did meet, the Blues’ boss had stated that it would take his side up to four years to match their domestic rivals.
Further, he complimented the good work that Mauricio Pochettino had done with the club and talked about how he expected the season to draw to a close for his team.
As it turns out Chelsea manager’s words were well reasoned. Spurs ended their 28-year drought for a league victory at Stamford Bridge as they secured a comfortable 3-1 victory over the Blues.
The win meant that Chelsea is now 8 points behind Spurs who sit 4th, occupying the last Champions League slot. With a crucial fixture against Liverpool on the penultimate weekend, Chelsea has it all to do if they wish to secure Champions League football.
Though Spurs might be leading their rivals in terms of the “structure”, they are still behind the Blues in terms of trophies in recent times. Conte should first focus on securing his job at the club, rather than the current status of the teams and what may or may not be their fate, four or five years down the line.
If the rumours at the start of the year are to be believed, the current Chelsea boss could be heading for an exit from the club, with the Londoners already looking at a list of options to potentially replace him at the end of the season.
