And Conte reckons his side showed fighting spirit in character with title-winning sides.
"At this time of the season it's easy to be nervous. There's a lot of pressure. In the last game we lost and we didn't deserve to," he told Match of the Day.
"Our reaction was very good. Our look was strong. We showed what it is to be a good team. When you face this type of team, it's not easy. I want to thank to the crowd because they pushed us.
"Now with eight games to go, we know Tottenham can win eight so we need to take 18 points to have it mathematically.
"I think it's right to think we will be pushed to the end. When you see your opponents continue to win, you must win to win the title. That's all we have to do."
