Koeman: Champions elect Chelsea are difficult to beat

Posted May 01, 2017

Gary Cahill could barely hide his delight as Chelsea strengthened their grip on the title race with a 3-0 win at Everton.

Despite turning a blind eye to the pressure that Mauricio Pochettino and his squad have applied on Chelsea so far, Courtois still wants to see their impressive nine-game winning streak in the league come to an end.

"This was an important win but now we need to take it game by game and win these games", said Conte.

"After that, it makes it more hard to create chances and then, of course, if they get a little bit more space then they are a team who can kill the game with the second goal".

He said: "To win away against Everton is not easy, but I think we have to continue in this way - to go step by step and take three points from every game until the end".

Registering a 2-0 win against Arsenal early Monday morning themselves, Cahill showed respect for the red hot form of Tottenham, but expects that they will break before Chelsea relent in their pursuit for the title.

According to Elias, Yogi Berra and Roger Maris were the only other Yankees to homer at Fenway on their birthdays. Chapman then walked Hanley Ramirez , putting the tying run on base and brining the winning run to the plate.

City relied on 20-year-old striker Gabriel Jesus to secure them a point in the final five minutes of their game against a Boro side scenting back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since May 2008.

Fortunately for Chelsea, it was Spaniard Pedro who provided it, turning onto his non-preferred left boot and letting fly with a rasping drive into the top corner of Maarten Stekelenburg's net.

"I m buzzing with that, it s a huge result for us".

United suffered another of the home draws that have blighted their first season under Jose Mourinho when relegation-threatened Swansea City salvaged a 1-1 draw, Gylfi Sigurdsson's fine free kick equalising a controversial Wayne Rooney penalty.

An overjoyed Conte celebrated in front of the travelling supporters following the crucial win at Goodison Park, which moved his side a step closer to the Premier League title. Sunday's 1-1 draw at home to Swansea was made worse for United by the sight of Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw going off to join an already extensive list of sidelined defenders. For this reason we must celebrate in the right way, with my players, with the staff, with our fans. "You can not isolate the performance out of the context".
