Brunt promises Chelsea tough test at West Brom

15 May 2017

"It's great to be in this atmosphere at Stamford Bridge and it's great to hear your fans with this enthusiasm", Conte said after Monday's win.

"It's been a different year for me", Fabregas said. I repeat: "it won't be easy".

"We all know it's a Premier League football club in everything - the supporters, the stadium, the training ground, the infrastructure is all there - so the most important thing is to finish the season strongly with two more games to go".

Lifting the Premier League title this season with Antonio Conte will be even sweeter than when Chelsea won it with Jose Mourinho in charge, admits Thibaut Courtois. He would have had another but for Fabio da Silva's slight deflection on his pass to Diego Costa for Chelsea's opening goal.

"For sure now, I'm a bit relaxed". Play for the team. "I'm proud of what I've done and proud of the team". Weekly stories linking him with Inter Milan, which on Tuesday fired coach Stefano Pioli, might be wide of the mark despite the Italian team's Chinese owners reportedly offering 12 million euros ($13 million) a year.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says he is exclusively focused on clinching the title - and is not distracted by reports linking him to Inter Milan. We started this season to try to solve the problems and find the solution to change the situation created in the previous season. And then through hard work, he improved a lot.

Despite his side's total control of the game, the ever feverish Conte prowled the touchline as usual, gesticulating wildly and yelling commands to his players. This development of Cesc is our development.

The Blues head to West Brom live on Friday Night Football knowing a win will make it impossible for second-placed Tottenham to catch them, and give Conte the league championship in his first year in English football. After switching to a 3-4-2-1 system, the Blues have been playing at an extremely high level, and Conte is very close to tasting success in his first season in England.

"I am enjoying it more now than I was a week or two ago when it was really tight, we were winning and they [Tottenham] were winning, and the pressure was on". "It would be wonderful to do it on Friday - the quicker the better".
