Conte wants Chelsea to control emotions against Man Utd

Apr 17, 2017, 04:46

We know what we are playing for, motivation is 100 per cent and I think we played a good game.

Chelsea are closing in on the title and Conte insisted his side will travel to Old Trafford aiming to collect all three points, especially as second-placed Tottenham host Bournemouth earlier in the weekend and can cut the deficit to four points with victory.

"I like the pressure, if I don't see pressure I put pressure", said Conte.

Hailing Chelsea's response in claiming two wins in a week after their 2-1 home defeat by Crystal Palace, Conte warned his players that Tottenham will never give up on the title.

"The team does well whenever we have pressure on us".

We are going to have to play each game as [we played] the last one because we need the points to get closer to the title.

"We know our schedule is not easy".

Gary Neville believes Mauricio Pochettino, not Antonio Conte, deserves to be named Premier League Manager of the Season.

"It wasn't easy to play this game after the win of Tottenham, but our reaction, our answer was very good", he said. They now have a seven point lead over London rivals Tottenham with seven matches of the league season remaining.

Claudio Ranieri pretty much swept the board for these awards last season as he guided Leicester City to a surprise league title win, and indeed the former Foxes manager will be on Monday Night Football giving his take of what went wrong for the club, leading ultimately to his dismissal in February, in the months after. Every team needs to defeat the team on top of the table. "He provoked the first goal, and I'm sure he can score in every game".

Adam Smith's freaky own goal floored Bournemouth from the off, though Joshua King did fire his 13th league goal of the season, albeit via a deflection.

Cesar Azpilicueta joins in as Marcos Alonso celebrates after scoring Chelsea's third goal.

"We have shown all season great character, great desire, great will to fight for the title", he said.

"I am very happy for this experience because for me and my family it is incredible", he said.
