Premier League Cahill eager to get Chelsea title party started

Premier League Cahill eager to get Chelsea title party started”

"Cesc is one of the best examples for our season because he didn't start a lot", Conte added.

Tottenham Hotspur's surprise defeat at West Ham United last week handed Chelsea the initiative and they can now seal a second title triumph in three years if they win at West Bromwich Albion on Friday.

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

Chelsea's Diego Costa celebrates scoring against Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge stadium in London , Monday, May 8. Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-0 at West Ham United.

They are now in a position to secure the trophy, their second in the last three seasons, with just two points in the next three games.

Full-time: Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough!

"We are very close".

The game that the English Premier League season has built up to. I feel the quality of my minutes has been fantastic, my contribution is perhaps bigger than a full season where I play every game. "I am pleased for him".

SOLID: 211000 Jobs Created in April, Unemployment Falls to 4.4%
Manufacturing added 6,000 jobs in April, losing 3,000 in durable goods manufacturing and adding 9,000 in nondurable goods. The jobs gain announced today compares with a forecast in a Bloomberg survey of economists of a 190,000 increase.

West Brom will take on the champions-elect with their spirits boosted by a 2-2 draw at Burnley which ended their four-match losing run and saw Salomon Rondon end his 19-game goal drought.

We have the opportunity to win the title on Friday but West Brom away is always hard to play, they are a good team with a good manager so we expect a hard game, but I am sure we will be ready for this.

"I still think sport has to encourage initiative and, if it rewards too much teams who don't take initiative, then we have to rethink the whole process because people will not, forever, come to watch teams who do not want to take the initiative". But we know West Brom are a hard team to play.

"In that moment my players showed me great commitment to overcome this moment and to try to win the league". Asked whether Chelsea had any injury issue to contend with, the Italian responded: "All my players are available for the game".

Liverpool must win last two games, says Milner
I think it was a mature performance and, if nerves were affecting us, you would have seen us lumping balls forward. Jurgen Klopp's side have won just eight of the 22 matches they have played in all competitions in 2017.

Conte also had praise for Middlesbrough and their fans. In this part of the season, we always said it's right to look at ourselves and not wait for the result of the other teams.
