Chelsea 24 points from title – Conte

Chelsea’s Italian boss Antonio Conte says his league-leaders need eight wins from their remaining fixtures to clinch the Premier League.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (MARCH 17, 2017) (BBC) – Chelsea need 24 points from their remaining 11 fixtures to win the Premier League title, manager Antonio Conte said on Friday (March 17) ahead of their trip to Stoke City on Saturday.

Leaders Chelsea, who are yet to face four other teams from the top seven, appear to be running away with the league title as they sit 10 points above the chasing pack but Conte was not thinking too far ahead.

“Now I think that we need 24 points to win the league and it is important for us to see game-by-game and not to look forward,” Conte told reporters.
