Cesc Fabregas: Chelsea must wrap up EPL title on Friday

Posted May 14, 2017

Chelsea will on Friday night seek victory at West Brom and the Premier League title, with Antonio Conte suggesting the Blues should recognise his "real value" as head coach.

Should Chelsea fail to take maximum points at The Hawthorns, subsequent home games against Watford and relegated Sunderland mean Conte's side have plenty of margin for error.

"We do not comment on individual contracts", a Manchester United spokesman said.

"It was probably more comfortable last time but the run-in is always the same, there is always a stage in the season when it's going to be tight, when teams are putting pressure on and you're having to win".

We've never been too deep in thought on it all season. "To have done that nearly with two games to go is a nice feeling. That result secured Cherries' Premier League status while Burnley, with 40 points, are on the cusp of safety.

Last season, Chelsea mounted a dismal defence of the Premier League title and Jose Mourinho was sacked in December 2015, before the club eventually limped to a 10th-place finish under interim boss Guus Hiddink.

The Blues have had a resurgent season under their new boss after finishing tenth previous year and Conte believes that matches against Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City were pivotal to his side's challenge, especially the 3-0 defeat to the Gunners in September.

"Then we had to play against them in the semi-final of the FA Cup".

The Belgium goalkeeper, asked to compare winning the title with Chelsea under Mourinho to this season with Conte, told Talksport Radio on Tuesday: "It's hard to say because obviously in the first year I came here, I came from winning the league in Spain and straight away we won the league, so that was very nice".

Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-0 at West Ham United.

"I know we're not there yet, but we're very close and it will be very enjoyable after past year". They are seven points clear of Tottenham with three games left, but Pulis said Albion have a duty to themselves to ensure the Blues do not romp home.

'They will give us a very hard game there and we have to stay focused'. "They are a strong physical team, good coach and the atmosphere there can be very hot".

"We are close and in football nothing is done until it's done".

It comes just as Turkey sent a high powered delegation to Washington to explain to the Americans Ankara's misgivings in detail. The YPG militia says the decision is "historic" and a "sign of confidence" in the group, in a statement released Wednesday.

Only an incredible collapse could prevent Conte bagging the title in his first season and adding it to his three Serie A crowns achieved in successive seasons with Juventus. Wenger's team have failed to even score on three of their last four trips to Stoke but Mark Hughes' men are not in the best of form, having won just one of their last nine Premier League matches. Now the most important thing is to reach our target.
