Chelsea's Conte tells players to go for the kill

After Tottenham's 1-0 loss to West Ham over the weekend, Conte and his men just need two wins in remaining four games to claim the Premier League title.

If Antonio Conte's side win versus Boro they would go seven points clear with only three games left to play, meaning if they beat West Brom next Friday, the title is sealed.

Conte's men need three more points to seal the title and they've responded superbly to the 2-0 defeat at Manchester United on April 16.

With Chelsea striker Diego Costa once again being linked with a move to the Chinese Super League, manager Antonio Conte says transfer speculation is "normal" at this time of the season.

And if we have seen the end of Tottenham's bid for the unexpected, Pochettino and his players should be applauded for sprinkling a modicum of interest in what looked a boring title challenge.

Throughout the win against Boro, Chelsea's fans sung "we're gonna win the league, we're gonna win the league!" in lackadaisical fashion. It's strong. It's a totally different to the Italian or Spanish leagues.

"We are working very hard to reach this target".

Assad's government controls all but six districts of Damascus: Barzeh, Qabun , Jobar, Tishreen, Tadamun, and Yarmuk camp. The spokesman, Hamza Birqdar, said the government had concluded the deal with a civilian committee in Barzeh.

Conte will be fully focused on the task in hand which is to finish the job and pick up two pieces of major silverware in his first year at Chelsea, but following on from that, time will tell if he has his head turned by Inter and the prospect of a return home. Middlesbrough sit 19th in the league, six points behind Hull and safety.

Conte said to the Mirror: "For sure, we are in a moment of transition".

But most will be able to breathe a sigh of relief at the close of play on Monday night if results go their way.

Do you think Chelsea will win the EPL, HollywoodLifers?

Despite winning the Russian Premier League three times during his time with CSKA Moscow, Slutsky does not have the credentials of the sort of manager the Premier League champions-elect should be looking to appoint.

Fabregas switched the angle of Chelsea's attack to play in Victor Moses on the other flank, with only a fine Guzan save preventing a third goal before the break.

"As I said, finding the team, finding the players and getting the commitment of the players so early in the season for someone that is new to the team [has been responsible] for so many players changing so drastically compared to the last season".

Boro's only league win in 18 games since Christmas came at home to relegated Sunderland last month.
