Chelsea manager Antonio Conte hails Cesc Fabregas contribution

18. Bournemouth – 42 points

Add to that Cesc Fabregas' reduced role in the Premier League as the Italian has kept faith with virtually the same starting line-up week in, week out, and it could have potentially posed some problems for Conte when he did need to call on those players.

Nevertheless Conte will not allow his team to take their foot off the gas just yet. I thought he controlled him, he was aggressive and we stopped one of the strengths of Chelsea today.

The 31-year-old has had his critics this season, though, with many football fans baffled that he was included in the PFA Team of the Year over Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld. If we don't win against Middlesbrough (a week on Monday) then you lose this great win.

The Brazilian suffered a knee injury during a tackle by Sergio Aguero in Chelsea's 3-1 win away to Manchester City in December, but has played on this season by using heavy strapping on his leg to reduce the pain.

"For this reason we must celebrate in the right way, with my players, with the staff, with our fans".

Conte said: I didn't speak with the doctor about his injury but I don't think it is a serious injury for him.

Everton barely troubled their visitors once Dominic Calvert-Lewin had hit the post inside the first 70 seconds, and manager Ronald Koeman conceded Chelsea's second-half performance, in particular, showed they would be worthy champions.

Police closed a street outside to traffic, and television news crews were stationed in a lot across the street. CNN's Jay Croft reported private funeral services were held for Hernandez on Monday.

Although they held the Premier League leaders for an hour, there was no real suggestion the result would be anything other than it turned out to be.

"Maybe in the last 30 minutes, yes", he said. We controlled it from the start until the end which is good for us.

"I think we did some mistakes in our ball possession and that makes them really risky in the first half, but I think we did a good job until the 1-0".

"He must be thinking: "I'm looking at Chelsea, looking at Costa, looking at the chances they're getting all the time being involved in the game" - that might turn his head".

"It is not really bad".

With a more hard end to the season, it's hard to see Tottenham winning all 5 to push Chelsea to the last day of the season.
