West Brom v Chelsea preview

West Brom v Chelsea preview”

Chelsea are waiting to see if N'Golo Kante is fully fit after sitting out Monday's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough with a thigh problem.

"The first year I came here, I came from winning the league in Spain and straight away we won the league, so that was very nice", Courtois added.

There was little Steve Agnew's side could do to stop a rampaging Chelsea from condemning them to the drop, with Deigo Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic finding the net in a 3-0 victory for the title favourites. Because I saw in this season that he put himself in this team in every moment, if he played or didn't play. "It's great for me and my players".

Antonio Conte says guiding Chelsea to the Premier League title from last season's 10th-placed finish would be one of his best achievements as a manager.

Such was the number of opportunities Fabregas gifted to his teammates during the first half that injured Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi tweeted "Cesc is like Santa on a pitch".

The side found its groove thanks to an early-season systemic change from Conte.

At former club Juventus, Conte had two seasons in the Champions League: Juve reached the quarterfinals in 2012-13 before being swept aside by Bayern Munich, and then failed to advance from its group the following year.

With Tottenham putting up nine straight wins before their loss to West Ham on Friday, Chelsea were pressured by Spurs, but the win over Middlesbrough means it would take a collapse of epic proportions if the Blues were to miss out on the title.

He is the second most fouled player in the league this season having been brought down 89 times as he attempts, on average, four dribbles-per-game.

"We haven't scored enough goals and ultimately you have to score goals to win football matches".

That's 106 Premier League assists for the midfielder, just 56 behind Ryan Giggs.

The result left Chelsea needing one more win to clinch the title and it confirmed Boro's relegation back to the Championship.

This was Chelsea 300th home win in the Premier League. "We have the possibility to do this on Friday against West Brom, but for sure it won't be easy", Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte, as reported by the capital club's website.
