"It's not easy when you receive a yellow card after a few minutes", said Conte, whose side prevailed courtesy of an 87th-minute victor by centre-back Gary Cahill. If you want to take more risk and try to take three points and not only one, you have to try to change but when you change, there is the great possibility to score a goal but also to concede and you must know this. Reports from the peninsula mirror those in The Sun is claiming that the Nerazzurri are prepared to offer the former Juve coach a king's ransom to return home at the end of the season in which he could claim a domestic double with the West London side.

After Willian's free kick put Chelsea ahead, Jonathan Walters equalized from the penalty spot after being nudged by Gary Cahill.

"You saw the celebrations". I went absolutely berserk.

After climbing down from the roof of the dugout the Blues boss said that we delighted to see Cahill make amends for giving away a first half penalty with his striker's instinct.

"But today it is important against a strong team and in a stadium with a great atmosphere".

It means Antonio Conte's men will have to suffer a mighty collapse in the final 10 League games of the campaign to miss out on the Premier League trophy. Tottenham and Manchester City are the closest challengers but are 13 points behind the leaders heading into their games on Sunday.

Despite Andre Ayew reducing the arrears, the visitors held on to pull six points clear of the bottom three.

Chelsea's away form has been tremendous this season, with their home record not far behind. The talk in the aftermath of another win was not of whether they will win the title but of how they have done it.

Frustrations then boiled over for Bardsley, who was given a second booking for a clumsy foul on Fabregas, as Chelsea ground out a huge win in the race for the title.

Antonio Conte has set Chelsea a 21-point target to be sure of clinching the Premier League title. They have those memories and understand what it takes.

"Sometimes a player who, in the last two years or so, didn't play well goes on to have a fantastic season".

Chelsea led early on after Willian's free-kick beat Grant, who dived down to his near post and got a hand to the ball but failed to stop it finding the back of the net.

In the FA Cup quarter-finals, the Blues got the better of a Manchester United side who played nearly two thirds of the fixture with 10 men, and it was a result which extended an unbeaten run that started on the first weekend of 2017.
