Antonio Conte has claimed that Tottenham would have easily won the Premier League title this season had it not been for Chelsea’s fine form.

The Lilywhites look like they will come up short in the Premier League title race this season after their 1-0 loss to West Ham United at the London Stadium on Friday night.

Chelsea are on the verge of winning the title in Conte’s first season at the club, marking a dramatic turnaround following their disastrous tenth-placed finish last season.

Tottenham pushed Leicester close for the Premier League title as well last term but ended up in third place in the table.

And Conte believes that Tottenham would definitely have been crowned champions if Chelsea had not been in such good form.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference before Monday’s game with Middlesbrough, Conte said: “In this season, if Chelsea had not performed in this way, Tottenham would win the title without difficulty.

“Only this great season (from us) is pushing them to fight and, maybe, to win or not to win the title.

“I think that Tottenham have an advantage, if you compare Tottenham to Chelsea.
