Chelsea boss Conte sets point target for title run

Posted March 18, 2017

Leaders Chelsea, who are yet to face four other teams from the top seven, appear to be running away with the league title as they sit 10 points above the chasing pack but Conte was not thinking too far ahead.

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois put in another excellent display during the 1-0 FA Cup win over Manchester United so I see no reason why Conte would want to swap his goalkeepers this weekend.

A recent report in the Times claimed that not only was Antonio Conte unhappy with his involvement (or lack thereof) in Chelsea's transfer dealings, he was holding this situation over the club during contract negotiations and making it a demand that he be more involved. "I have a good relationship [with the board], when I need something I speak with the club and we always try to find the right solution together".

Eden Hazard needs to be shown more respect by clatter-happy opposition, according to Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Former City loanee Victor Moses is a major doubt for Chelsea after he limped off with a suspected calf injury against Manchester United on Monday.

"It's always very hard to take always the best decision", he said.

Mosul is split by the Tigris River, and its eastern side is referred to as the left bank, while the western is known as the right bank.

He scored the winning goal, but it was his diligence and well documented ability to cover ground for two players that drew all the attention and plaudits - all of which will be invaluable for Chelsea in the final eleven games of the campaign, starting at the Bet365 stadium.

The scoreline may not suggest it but the Stoke gave Chelsea a real scare in their 4-2 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

"We have caused them problems in the past".

This match is not televised in the UK.

The Spanish international's return would see Willian drop back to the bench as Eden Hazard is nearly certain to keep his place in attack while Diego Costa should once again lead the line up front.

If anything sums up the Blues' transformation since their last Premier League visit to Stoke, it is the resurrection of Hazard's status with the fans.
