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

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".

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".

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.
