Chelsea maintains EPL title charge beating Bournemouth 3-1

"He fought a lot for the team and he is important - it is important for the team that we won against a strong team".

"I don't smell the victory, because there are seven games to go", Conte said in an interview after the game. "It's normal to have a good pressure (after Spurs won)".

"It wasn't easy to play this game after the win of Tottenham, but our reaction, our answer was very good", he told reporters.

Boruc kept out Moses with the game winding down, that saw Cherries substitute Lys Mousset connect to a Charlie Daniels cross, but instead of a first-time header, he opted to control the ball, allowing Gary Cahill to ensure the final few minutes weren't a nervy affair for the Premier League leaders.

"I remember in France I always scored against the same teams, but if you want to be a top player, you have to score against every team".

Chelsea star, Victor Moses, on Saturday returned to action after missing two Premier League games due to an injury. "We know what we are playing for, the motivation is 100 percent and we played a good game". "Every good coach, their real function is not only to win, but improve his players and to find the right way to work with them to improve physical and tactical aspects".

Chelsea fans could probably be forgiven for wondering why Antonio Conte was so adamant on bringing Marcos Alonso to the club with him last summer.

Joshua King's deflected shot gave Bournemouth hope of a comeback prior to half-time, but Chelsea closed out the match comfortably after Alonso's free kick, and afterwards Antonio Conte praised his players' unwavering determination to become champions again.

Six more victories from the next nine Premier League games are needed to secure the Premier League title, hopefully today we can get one step closer. They could win three in a row for just the second time in the competition (also in October 2016).

"It was a pity to concede the goal and then we suffered a bit but in the second half we managed the game very well".

However, they were nearly a goal down in the first minute.

"After the result against Crystal Palace where we didn't deserve to lose, we could have dropped points against City and then against Bournemouth".

"For sure Tottenham have a great desire to win the title and we must have the same desire". His record against Mourinho this season stands at two wins out of two but, amid the distraction during both those matches of the super heavyweight touchline clash, the lingering tension remains obvious.
