Bournemouth 1 Chelsea 3: Conte's men restore seven-point lead

The Blues arrived at Dean Court only four points clear at the top after Tottenham's 4-0 win over Watford earlier on Saturday but they comfortably restored their seven-point advantage.

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 yesterday.

Taskmaster Italian boss Conte hailed Chelsea for absorbing the pressure of Spurs' 4-0 lunchtime win over Watford by offering the ideal response at Dean Court.

With Chelsea FC now leading Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table by seven points, and eight games left to play.

"I'm very happy to face this type of situation, and to play with only four points from our opponent". If I don't see pressure, I put pressure.

"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". "Our reaction, our answer was very good".

"We're disappointed with elements of the first-half where we conceded the two goals", said Howe.

Conte also praised Costa after the match despite his continuing lack of goals, and preferred to concentrate on the win itself rather than the defence's continuing habit of giving away goals.

Antonio Conte's side now have 75 points with seven games to go in the 2016/2017 season.

Liverpool, the team placed third but which has played more games than its rivals, left it late as substitutes Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino earned a precious 2-1 victory at Stoke City.

IT WAS plain sailing for Chelsea as they collected another three points following a trip down to the Bournemouth seaside.

Real Madrid have already held initial talks with the player's representatives and could push harder in the summer should Hazard give the indication that he is ready for a transfer.

Despite his recent struggles Costa has scored 17 goals in 26 Premier League games for Chelsea this season and would not be easily replaced at Stamford Bridge.

"In this moment Diego is not scoring but he's totally involved in the team and our football".

It's a safe to say that the media at large would love nothing more than for Chelsea to let this title Gerrard slip out of their hands.

Bournemouth cut the deficit three minutes before half-time, with King scoring his 10th goal in his last 11 Premier League games, although his 20-yard drive needed a deflection off Luiz to beat Courtois.

He was smiling and chuckling a bit towards the end of that statement, so he must have been joking a bit.

"I think previous year, and I am huge Eden Hazard fan, there were times when he was so confident in his ability that he would beat someone twice in midfield - he'd beat them and then beat them again".
