This is why Antonio Conte is the best manager around right now

Chelsea may have made a misstep in their quest for the title last time out against Spurs but Antonio Conte’s are still well place to go on and pick up a Premier League win come May.

Conte has transformed Chelsea from last season’s dismal campaign, turning them into an outfit that rarely looks like drawing, never mind losing.

This stat from Squawka shows just how impressive their run was throughout December.

Not content with just winning every game, they absolutely dominated, keeping four clean sheets in six matches and scoring an average of more than 2 per game.

From back to front they have been absolutely superb and despite defeat at White Hart Lane, must fancy their chances of major silverware in 2017, especially without the distractions of Europe.

December’s form was part of a 14 game winning streak, the record for consecutive games won in a single season.

That’s why people say Antonio Conte is the best manager around in the Premierh League right now and why Chelsea fans are so optimistic about the future.
