Hull beats Middlesbrough 4-2, out of EPL relegation zone
Conte is well aware of the threat posed by Tottenham and believes six wins from their final eight games could be required to keep Pochettino's in-form side at bay.

"We've been saying it since the beginning of the season: it's one game at a time", he said. "Against Palace, we played better than in a lot of games that we won this season but we lost so it's just important to get the points no matter how you play".
He said: "Chelsea must play always Champions League every season".
He added: "I like to convince our players to play in that way".
It was yet another example of Liverpool dropping points against so-called lesser sides who'd sat back and defended for their lives against us.
