Conte urges Chelsea to take one more step for the title

Antonio Conte's men need just one win from their remaining three fixtures to seal the title, with games against West Brom, Watford and Sunderland on the horizon. They won't get an easy game when they come to The Hawthorns.

"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 don't do the right things". West Brom have beaten Chelsea in three of their last five league meetings at The Hawthorns. "The size of club we are, if we can keep doing that, it's a fantastic achievement". Only Manchester United (13) have won more Premier League titles.

Fabregas made sure Chelsea capitalised on Tottenham Hotspur's 1-0 defeat at West Ham United on Friday by setting up goals for Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic, with Marcos Alonso also finding the net yesterday.

"Then we had to play against them in the semi-final of the FA Cup". Conte has spent his time since the 3-0 drubbing of Middlesbrough trotting out his familiarly cautious mantra about hard work, fight and commitment still being needed to finish their efficient job. The west Londoners will claim their fifth title in 12 seasons by taking all three points over a West Brom side who are only playing for position in mid-table. Now there is a good opportunity because Tottenham's defeat was, for us, a good opportunity to take three points and try to win the title before the end of the season. "In football we always give this type of situation".

Since winning 13 consecutive matches against West Bromwich Albion in all competitions between 1993 and 2011, Chelsea haven't won back to back games in any of their last 10 meetings. "It is normal to have a lot of speculation, on me the players the coaches, we can't lose the focus, now it is very important".

Asked what he had said to his players following the Middlesbrough win, Conte replied: "The message was now we need to take another step. To see your opponent only four points behind was very hard", he said. "It's great for me, for my players, for the club to see this great atmosphere".

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.
