Conte: Chelsea Took 'Big Step' To EPL Title, Bring On West Brom

Madeline Patrick | 12 May, 2017, 03:36

Chelsea are now seven points clear of closest challengers Tottenham, and will wrap up their second title in three years if they can beat West Brom on Friday.

Asked what he had said to his players following the Middlesbrough win, Conte replied: "The message was now we need to take another step. My players deserve to win the league". It was a great performance, my players showed commitment, work-rate for three important points.

"Honestly this is a big step because now there are three games and we need to win one to win the title. They will want to play a top game against us".

The club's former team coach who took charge following Aitor Karanka's departure spoke to reporters following Middlesbrough's 3-0 defeat against Chelsea, which sealed their departure from top flight football.

Also David Luiz was looking uncertain going into the game against Middlesbrough, but has now seemed to make a full recovery.

West Brom did make life very hard for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Tony Pulis will surely have a plan up his sleeve for this one.

Tottenham Hotspur's surprise defeat at West Ham United last week handed Chelsea the advantage.

And Courtois says it would send a message to the critics who slammed the team previous year.

"They were better than us in every department, it could have been 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0 in the end".

Next it's West Brom and we have to try to win the league on Friday.

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

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

"We had a lot of critics, the new manager came in at the beginning of the season, we won some games but then we lost and there were again a lot of critics".

If Chelsea do not secure the title on Friday, they have two home games - against Watford and Sunderland - to complete the job.

"It would be nice if we got a result to go around the pitch and appreciate our own supporters after that game, " added defender Gareth McAuley.

It was all too easy for the Blues, who are now just one game away from being crowned champions.
