Liverpool’s victory at Everton means that the gap is down to six points between them and Conte’s side, but the Blues will hope to extend that further when they take on Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
It has been a remarkable transformation from a side that were eighth in the table and eight points behind leaders Manchester City on September 24, as they are now firm favourites to regain their Premier League title.
