Chelsea star Gary Cahill better than Costa and Hazard - Wayne Bridge

Hilda Schwartz | 14 May, 2017, 04:04

Today, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said that his side has taken a big step towards clinching the club's sixth league title (fifth in the Premier era).

The France worldwide, who is set to win his second top-flight title in as many seasons in England, will be needed at West Brom where Chelsea have won just once in their last five visits.

It was the Baggies who derailed Tottenham's title quest at White Hart Lane previous year when a 1-1 draw handed Spurs a blow they could not recover from with three to play.

"We have the possibility to do this on Friday against West Brom but for sure it won't be easy".

Conte is as demonstrative and emotional on the pitch as he is measured and softly spoken off it, though he did admit that in this match he felt "a little bit more relaxed". "We also lost a few games near the start and again there were a lot of critics, but we bounced back as a group very hard".

"Everybody's worked so hard for a number of years to get back into the Premier League and we know how tough the Premier League is and obviously we've pulled up short".

"Also, we must know to play against West Brom is not easy".

"West Brom are a really good team, a physical team, and we must pay great attention".

Fox makes an official (and exciting) casting decision for the highly anticipated X-Men spinoff, New Mutants . New Mutants is looking to begin production in July on a script written by Boone and Knate Gwaltney .

"Every opponent who goes there has a hard game, they are eighth in the league and have had a very good year".

And though Gibson hardly had his best game at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea turned on the style, a committed display in the face of adversity won't have harmed his reputation in the eyes of the watching Pulis.

"It's great for me, for my players, for the club to see this great atmosphere", the Italian added. The Blues have a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League after defeating Middlesbrough 3-0 on Monday.

"The fans didn't stop singing, wherever we've been this season they've been the same". In this part of the season, we always said it's right to look at ourselves and not wait for the result of the other teams.

Former Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet believes Chelsea deserve to win the title because they've been the most consistent team.

Antonio Conte will urge his Chelsea squad to enjoy the pressure of securing the Premier League title this weekend.

"It wasn't like we felt we had to score because the title was at stake".
