EPL: There’s a gap between Chelsea and Tottenham – Conte

Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Antonio Conte, has admitted there is still a gap between them and Chelsea.

Conte was speaking after a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Kalidou Koulibaly opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge, before Emile Hogjberg equalized for the visitors.

The Blues thought they had taken all three points after Reece James drilled past Hugo Lloris, but Harry Kane headed in a late equalizer.

“It’s normal to come here and suffer. But we also created situations to get into the game.

“The difference is clear. Chelsea won the Champions League two years ago, the Club World Cup and made the final of the FA and Carabao Cup and third place last season.

“There is a difference between Chelsea and Tottenham. I’m not here to discover this. But we want to reduce the gap. We have to work – it will take time. But at the same time, last season we lost three times to Chelsea. Now we drew. It’s a little step forward,” Conte said.
