Antonio Conte hopes Chelsea wrap up Premier League title at West Brom

12 May 2017, 12:45 | Stacy Ballard

Chelsea's English defender John Terry (L) celebrates with Chelsea's English defender Gary Cahill after winning the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge in London on May 8, 2017.

With just three games remaining in the season, it's merely the need of two points for Chelsea to win the premier league title.

He said: "There are three points riding on it for them and us".

"We're very close. We must be honest".

"Everyone went out and enjoyed themselves and there was a little bit of pressure off, although that can sometimes be bad when you relax and do not do the right things". "This was a big, big step for us".

"It could go to a tribunal but our club would rather try and sort a deal out with Leeds if we're going to do it instead of going to tribunal".

The former Italy coach was delighted with the way his players capitalised on Tottenham's shock defeat at West Ham on Friday and he believes Chelsea will be worthy champions if they clinch the title on Friday.

"Then we had to play against them in the semi-final of the FA Cup". This step was big for us, a big win.

Ten months into Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte's tenure, his strategic honeymoon with China has devolved into rocky relations. As part of that, he has said he will not use the ruling to pressure China.

"It would be fantastic to do it Friday - the quicker the better "Today is a big step forward".

'I know we're not there yet but we're very close and it will be very enjoyable after past year'. That means we won eight games and lost only two.

Ben Gibson says that the confirmation of Middlesbrough's relegation from the Premier League is the "lowest point" of his life.

But the trophy seems to be heading back to Stamford Bridge - although West Brom are sure to be keen on spoiling the party.

"We all know to play away against West Brom won't be easy but we're in a good moment".

Goals from Diego Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic sealed the victory for Chelsea but the outstanding performance of the evening came from Cesc Fabregas.

Opta have confirmed that Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has now been awarded his 11th assist of the Premier League campaign.
