The Italian manager thinks from now on they have to win every game in EPL to catch the high flying Manchester City this season.
In the recent past Chelsea has lost their match against their City rivals West Ham and after that match, Conte declared that this season their chance of defending their title is over after half of the season has spent already.
But in their last match they won their match with flying colors against Huddersfield by 3-1 goal, thanks to Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willian, and Pedro who scored all the three goals for the Blues, and after that win, they reduce the deficit down to 11 against Manchester City.
After the match, Conte voiced: "It doesn't mean we don't want to try to catch them but we have to hope they have a big, big slip and for us then to win every game in this league. And it is very difficult in this league. You have to put in 120 per cent otherwise you risk dropping points.
"When you tell the truth, this is the truth. We had 14 points less than Manchester City. In 16 games they won 15 and drew one. In 17 games we lost four.
"When you have a competitor like City and every game they are winning, it is very difficult to think you can fight for the title.
"We must be realistic and tell the truth. 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 very honestly with my players and with our fans also."
