Chelsea on brink of glory after victory over Middlesbrough

Chelsea will take on West Brom on 13th May in a what could be called as the title decider. No use with unauthorized audio, video, data, fixture lists, club/league logos or "live" services.

The 30-year-old, who started for Chelsea in Monday's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough, told Sky Sports News: "It's been a hard year for me".

Diego Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic all found the net as Conte's men condemned their struggling visitors to relegation in emphatic fashion and eased seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham, who suffered a shock defeat against West Ham on Friday.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte also took a moment after the game to applaud the Middlesbrough supporters, who won't have Premier League games to attend for at least a season. "We need to make sure Boro bounce back very quickly".

Chelsea are linked with a new contract offer for Fabregas to tie him up until 2020.

"We have two big opportunities this season to finish this season in the right way".

"It's a Premier League football club in terms of everything about it".

Conte said: "Our worst moment was after the United defeat, because Tottenham won the game and to see your opponent only four points (behind) was very bad". For sure, when you play against City and win the way we did, the confidence improved.

"In my career I enjoy to have this type of big challenge".

Leeds left-back Charlie Taylor is a target and an agreement is close, with the 23-year-old set to leave Elland Road after boss Garry Monk said he refused to play at Wigan last weekend. We need to gain more points. In what we were doing. Every player, including myself, have not been good enough.

"I think it's great to see a team that got relegated and to see their fans clap the players".

Chelsea will win the Premier League with a win at West Brom! "I'm used to playing a lot but I feel I have matured a lot", he said.

"We must go game by game".

Former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho insists that the club's revival this season is a result of all their star players rediscovering their form. Stewart Downing, Grant Leadbitter, Fabio Da Silva, Daniel Ayala, Adam Clayton and Adam Forshaw are excellent players at Championship level. He is hitting some form at the right time as always, involving in four goals (3 goals + an assist) in the last three games and will be the ideal center-forward to navigate a physical side like West Bromwich Albion.
