Antonio Conte has become the first Chelsea manager to register 11 consecutive wins in a single Premier League season.

Diego Costa’s first-half header sealed a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday to extend Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League to nine points.

Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti combined managed to guide Chelsea to a club-record 11 consecutive victories in 2009.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho managed a 10-game winning run during his first stint in charge at Stamford Bridge in the 2008-09 campaign.

Chelsea are now three games from equalling Arsenal’s Premier League record of 14 consecutive wins, which was set in August 2002.
