"The most important game for us right now is tomorrow's because we want to improve our position", Conte said during his press conference on Friday.

"It's not simple. It will be very hard to reduce this gap and take a place in the Champions League, but we must try to do this until the end of the season'".

"This is not the first time".

"We must be frustrated".

Conte expressed disbelief that Southampton are battling to avoid relegation despite the quality of players in their team. But I'm not alone. Now is not the right moment to discuss this.

'Now it is very hard to talk about the future.

We have to prepare as if Chelsea are going to be at their best, with their best players available. This must be our target.
