I don´t smell the title - Conte needs Chelsea focus

Share

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte praised his team's refusal to bend to the pressure of the title race after their 3-1 win at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Chelsea took the lead on 17 minutes, courtesy of a freaky goal which saw Diego Costa's mishit effort deflecting in off the unfortunate Adam Smith.

Wing back Marcos Alonso, who scored the third Chelsea goal at Bournemouth, said: 'We have seven finals left, every game is going to be massive, we are going to have to play each game as the last one'.

Spurs had cut Chelsea's lead to four points with a 4-0 home win over Watford earlier in the day, but Conte shrugged off the pressure Mauricio Pochettino's men are putting on his side.

"It's more easy to control the game when you score first but at the end of the first half we were a little bit down". It's important to go game by game.

"Don't forget last season Tottenham fought for the title before the ending which means they're a great team".

Joshua King's deflected shot gave Bournemouth hope of a comeback prior to half-time, but Chelsea closed out the match comfortably after Alonso's free kick, and afterwards Antonio Conte praised his players' unwavering determination to become champions again.

"I remember in France I always scored against the same teams, but if you want to be a top player, you have to score against every team".

But I compliment my boys as well because they played very well.

"It was a good goal, I like to score against them". In this case, after the defeat against Crystal Palace which we didn't deserve, we played [Manchester] City when we could have dropped points, and today we could have dropped points, but instead we won both games. Now we are on top of the table.

Five more wins will be enough to bring the Premier League trophy back to Stamford Bridge, and Alonso says there is a unity of objective among everyone at Chelsea to see it done.
