Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0 at Stamford Bridge to build a seven-point gap to second-placed Tottenham, and with just three games remaining, all the Blues need to secure the Premier League title is one more win, one more ‘step’, as Antonio Conte put it.
We are very close but we need to take another step. It’s important to win it ourselves, we have the possibility to win it and not wait for the Tottenham result. We must focus and prepare well and West Brom away won’t be easy
the Italian manager told reporters after the win over Middlesbrough, a result that put an end to the visitors’ hopes to spend at least another year in the Premier League.
We are in a good moment and with concentration and a good attitude we will try to win. For sure, a game against West Brom will be very tough
Conte said as well, talking about the game that is being held on Friday. If Chelsea win, it’s all over, since they will have a ten-point advantage over Tottenham, one impossible to cover in three matches, even if Mauricio Pochettino’s team win all three, and the Blues fail to earn a single point in their last two games.
