He's Being Realistic - Martin Keown Defends Antonio Conte Conceding Premier League Title

Rajiv van La Parra

In-form Leicester City climbed to eighth after a luckless 86th-minute own goal by Ayoze Perez earned them a 3-2 win at Newcastle United.

Saturday's defeat is the fourth of the season in the league for Chelsea and the chances of them retaining the title they won a year ago is shrinking with each passing week.

Marko Arnautovic's early goal condemned the champions to a first defeat in eight league games to leave them 11 points adrift of leaders Manchjester City, who took on Manchester United overnight.

The win did not move West Ham out of the relegation zone but they are now level on points with West Brom who lost to second from bottom Swansea 1-0. If you want to stay in the title race, you must give continuity - continuity in the result. It is normal when you play in a few days.

Chelsea are still fighting in three cup competitions, with the Blues in the EFL Cup, Champions League and yet to start their FA Cup campaign.

Chris Evans recently responded to Keaton's video on Twitter , posting a heartfelt message telling the boy to stay strong. The video now has over 14 million views and over 200,000 comments on Facebook after it was shared.

Tottenham, meanwhile, got back to winning ways in style, ending a run of four games without victory with a thumping 5-1 home win over Stoke City at Wembley.

"When you lose against Crystal Palace at the bottom of the table and now to lose again, against West Ham - that at this moment is in a bad position in the table - if you lose points in these games it means you are not in the title race", Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said.

Son Heung-Min's cross was deflected in via Stoke defenders Kurt Zouma and Ryan Shawcross to put Spurs ahead and Son made it 2-0 by rattling in a pass from Dele Alli in the 53rd minute.

"I was around the box and knew I just needed one chance as the game was tight", Bony said. "I saw the ball dropping and thought that was it".

Steve Mounie scored twice as Huddersfield defeated fellow Premier League debutants Brighton 2-0.
