Antonio Conte ranks Premier League triumph in career

Posted May 14, 2017

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte is focused on clinching the Premier League title at West Brom on Friday rather than persistent rumours linking him with the vacancy at Inter Milan.

Fabregas was the creative fulcrum of Chelsea's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge on Monday and his assists set up goals for Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic.

Should Chelsea win this match, they'll have won 42 points away from home in the Premier League this season (the most) and it'll be the highest tally of away points by a side in a PL season since Manchester United won 42 in 2011-12.

"To my players my message is now that we need to do another step".

"For sure now, I'm a bit relaxed".

"The pressure is still on because we have to win one game out of the three, but with the way we're playing there's no reason why we shouldn't be confident".

But we need to take another step to become champions in the English Premier League, a fantastic achievement for us. We know West Brom are a hard team to play against.

Regardless, one thing which can help the Blue Jays, is the return of some of their seemingly endless list of injured players. Los Angeles rookie Cody Bellinger's RBI single with one out in the ninth inning brought home Corey Seager to tie the score.

He hailed West Brom as "a really good, physical team" but, of late, the truth is that Tony Pulis's eighth-placed side have looked anything but, having lost four of their last five games.

"Firstly you have to give Chelsea great credit", he said. At the other end of the table, Sunderland may still be licking their wounds after already being relegated but they could still have a huge say in who joins them and Middlesbrough in the second-tier Championship.

They recovered with interim boss Guus Hiddink in charge, eventually finishing in tenth place, and their rise has continued this season under Antonio Conte, who has all-but led the club to the title in his first season as manager.

"It's been different year for me", Fabregas said.

Only an incredible collapse could prevent Conte bagging the title in his first season and adding it to his three Serie A crowns achieved in successive seasons with Juventus.

"It is important to celebrate our win but also to have great respect and clap this type of situation, because I think this situation only happens in England". They can achieve this with a win in this game, having won 1-0 in the reverse fixture in December.

The goals prompted his usual animated celebrations and the final whistle, with Chelsea three points away from the Premier League title, was the signal for hugs and backslaps all round.
