West Brom will not 'roll over' for Chelsea, says Brunt

The Blues can win the title with victory against West Brom on Friday night, after they moved seven points clear of second placed Tottenham with a 3-0 win against Middlesbrough on Monday.

Conte will surely play his strongest side, in the hope that Chelsea can rest players versus Watford with the FA Cup final coming into view. "I have to say thanks to my players because it is not easy to adapt to a new method, philosophy and work very hard if you compare the work of this season to the past".

"The fans didn't stop singing, wherever we've been this season they've been the same".

"Now we are very close", Conte said. "This step was big".

"Over the last two seasons, teams who have not big possession have won the league", Wenger said.

Chelsea can secure their crown by beating West Brom on Friday, but Wenger has no plans to change.

"At this stage it was important to win and exploit Tottenham's defeat". With 26 goals scored in 36 games, Premier League leaders Chelsea have scored nearly three-times more since August.

Recent evidence would seem to support this with the Baggies having bagged just one win since the end of February. We're still chasing a points tally that will keep us in eighth position so we have a lot to play for.


"Honestly for sure this is a big step because now there are three games". In that moment, I think we had a lot of pressure, a lot of pressure.

"Then you will have the time to celebrate the win where you want". We must focus and prepare well for this game.

After losing to goals from Diego Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic, Agnew told of how everybody was devastated. The goal was Costa's 21st in the league, equalling his career-best total in a Chelsea shirt. And now he's playing in every game. This season we started with a lot of problems. "Now Cesc is showing himself to be a fantastic player". I'm pleased for him.

Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0 on Monday.

"Everyone is devastated", he admitted.

Gibson, who is 24-years-old, would be a welcomed addition to the The Hawthorns after a proven campaign in the Premier League, despite the eventual relegation for his club.

"Obviously we've come up short".

"We can only reflect over the 36 games we've played. We haven't scored enough goals".
