Antonio Conte insists he is unconcerned by the results of rivals after Chelsea strengthened their grip on the title race. 

Chelsea could manage just a draw at Liverpool, but Arsenal and Tottenham both unexpectedly dropping points saw the Blues extend their lead at the top of the table to nine points.

Conte, though, says he is only interested in Chelsea’s results, saying: “The best thing is to see ourselves, not the others.

“We stay top of the table and that is a great achievement but it is important to focus on ourselves.

“There are 15 games remaining and 45 points. It’s important to draw against a really good team and now we must focus on playing Arsenal next week.”

Onthe game itself, he added: “I think at the end of the match we could have won.

“It was a very tough game, both games tried to play with intensity. I’m pleased. We saw a different game to when we played Liverpool and lost at home.

“It’s pity Diego Costa missed the penalty because he played very well. We had different chances to score goals, but we must be happy with the result and the performance because it is not easy to play away at Liverpool.”
