Tottenham had title advantage over Chelsea this season, says Conte

Conte revealed that Thibault Courtois is fit and has trained.

"We can't control what Chelsea do, we just have to keep winning our games", said Spurs forward Harry Kane, who scored in the 2-0 win over Arsenal to take his league tally to 21 for the season.

"It continues with the high credibility, it is one of the best leagues in the world, if not the best, and it is hard to win".

"But I want to arrive at the end and be a victor with the club and the fans".

Chelsea's resurgence this season after a disastrous campaign the year before is testament to Conte's passionate input.

Buffett: GOP Health Care Bill a Tax Cut for the Rich
He said if you go back to about 1960, corporate taxes were about 4 percent of GDP and now they're about 2 percent of GDP. And Buffett has apparently done the math here. "That is in the law that was passed a couple days ago", he added.

He said: "Don't forget that Tottenham dropped out of the Champions League at the first group stage, and then dropped out in the first round of the Europa League (knock-out stage)". "If you consider our games and their games, there is a difference of what, eight games?" It was always a tough ask to overhaul Chelsea given the relentless pace they have set, and Spurs could scarcely have done any more.

The Italian is bidding to take Chelsea to a league and FA Cup double in his first season at Stamford Bridge, but has not had European football to contend with.

Blues boss Conte publicly insisted Costa's absence on that occasion was due to a back injury, but the speculation has persisted after some erratic displays from the forward lately.

The Blues have managed to score in every home match this season, and now have the best attack in the league, accumulating 43 goals at home throughout this campaign. "We must win", Conte said.
