Bilic reckons Chelsea can be caught

bilic_main_3437996b-large_transpjliwavx4cowfcaekesb3kvxit-lggwcwqwla_rxju8Slaven Bilic is convinced Chelsea can be caught in the race for the title.

The west London outfit are ten points clear of nearest rivals Spurs having lost just one game since the beginning of October.


But despite the big lead Slav believes the Blues have the potential to slip up in their charge for the Premier League’s top honour.

He said: “I’m surprised how good they have been. I was expecting him (Antonio Conte)  to have a strong impact because he had it at Juventus.

“I watched Juve quite a lot and I was studying his game. I didn’t know because no-one knows. I expected him to do great long term and it is a surprise they are 10 points clear.

Conte is a great manager, he done it at Juve, he done it with Italy. A brilliant manager, of course.

“It [the title race] is still very open. If they slip up, which you can in every game, other teams need to be ready.”
