What’s the betting Antonio Conte will leave Sir Alex Ferguson to eat his words following another great win at the weekend? The former Manchester United boss didn’t rate Chelsea as genuine Premier League title challengers after the Red Devils’ 4-0 humiliation at the Bridge last Sunday week. Ferguson gave Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and his old club as five realistic contenders but a fourth consecutive league win justifies Conte’s warning not to write his team off so soon.
The bookies also disagree with Sir Alex. Sitting just one point behind leaders Manchester City after 10 games, Chelsea are fourth favourites ahead of both Spurs and United in the betting market. With a 100% Premier League record in October, scoring 11 and none conceded, it’s hard to see Chelsea losing and they are already a profitable bet at the bookies.

The Chelsea manager will try to make sure the team continues to win by telling his players not to take too much from the current table but to keep their heads down and trust in the hard work that has turned September’s form on its head. Defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal followed a draw at Swansea which added a solitary point to August’s perfect start.
Conte stressed after the 2-0 win at Southampton on Sunday:
“It's not important for us to look at the table. We are in a good position, but it's not important.
"It's more important to work hard and trust that the work will improve us. Sometimes you can win a game but you don't see it happening the right way. Now, game by game, I'm seeing possibilities. I have confidence because we can improve. - Source - ChelseaFC.com
His players have responded in the right way and the boss must take his fair share of credit for changing his system after the defeat against Arsenal. The run up to Christmas includes potential six-pointers against London rivals Tottenham and title favourites Manchester City at the Etihad when we’ll be better able to judge if Conte can take the Blues all the way in his first season in charge.
