Conte praises fans after Chelsea victory

With a seven-point advantage at the top and three games to play, Chelsea can win the title with a victory at West Brom on Friday.

"We can't just roll over and let them get the result they need to win the league". I must be pleased for the performance, for the commitment, for the desire, for the will of my players.

A win at the Hawthorns on Friday against West Brom will guarantee Chelsea this season's Premier League title. "They will want to play a top game against us".

Having started the season in bad form, following a write-off of a season, Chelsea found their mojo when Antonio Conte shifted to a back three and since then, their season has taken only one trajectory.

Defeat confirmed Middlesbrough's relegation back to the Championship, and caretaker manager Steve Agnew stressed the need to reflect and rebuild.

Like Conte, Chelsea's fans are very satisfied.

"It's great to breathe this atmosphere at Stamford Bridge".

Speaking after the 3-0 win, the former Barcelona man expressed his pride at having been able to cope with time on the bench and hope that Chelsea will complete their league and FA Cup double this season.

"For sure, now we are very close".




"We'll give it our best".

The Belgian goalkeeper has not forgotten last season's woes, and says the ability Chelsea have shown to bounce back after the heavy criticism the team received should be applauded if the club manage to lift a fifth Premier League title at the end of the season.

We are showing that we deserve to win this league, and now we must try to become champions in the next game.

After the match, the Spaniard said that he was advised to leave Chelsea after struggling to establish himself under manager Antonio Conte but that he made a decision to stay and prove he could meet the manager's demands. "We faced a lot of problems", the 47-year-old Italian added.

I will play for the team and play for the club.

"Now we were very good to find the right way and have a fantastic season".

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois reckons winning the Premier League title with Chelsea this season will be all the sweeter after their struggles last term.

The Blues won the title in similar circumstances two years ago when a 1-0 win at home to Crystal Palace captured the crown with three games to spare.
