Conte Eyes Win Vs West Ham To Close Gap On United, City

Saturday, 09 Dec, 2017

I saw Manchester City struggle a lot to win against West Ham.

"But it would be better if Manchester City didn't lose against Shakhtar for this circumstance".

The Hammers are up next for Chelsea.

Conte will not be pulling any punches for this one.

"The best result is to win against West Ham and then anything can happen in the derby, the Manchester derby".

Here's how we predict Chelsea will lineup on Saturday lunchtime. I hope not tomorrow, but after our game. Maybe the best in this League.

On the outcome of the 2017 Ballon d'Or where Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante finished 19th and eighth respectively, Conte said: "Eden needs to win more trophies to feature higher up in the Ballon d'Or voting".

Luiz played a key role in Chelsea winning the league title last season, but it is claimed he has fallen out with Conte and he and was dropped from the team before he suffered his latest injury. "We will then see where we are in the final weeks of the season, where we could fight for it".

When asked on Friday if Luiz was "happy" at Chelsea ahead of the transfer window opening next month, Conte was adamant he would not be drawn on the topic, saying: 'I think now this is not the right moment to speak about this.

"It will be right to win, who deserves more to win". It's not important if I'm supporting Manchester United, Manchester City.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes that the Hammers' home game against the Blues doesn't really matter to them, when writing his regular column for Sky Sports.
