Chelsea have been linked with a £200 million move for five Premier League players by Express. They fought. And they were rewarded with this backs-to-the-wall victory.

Despite definitely having Spurs as favourites going into the game I must give a nod to Alvaro Morata who I was really impressed with last week.

It is also said that the Italian manager is still keen on signing Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Conte wants to increase the number of home grown players within his Chelsea squad.

"English players at top-eight clubs are getting fantastic experience with their team-mates, learning a lot as well and learning those demands of the highest level of football".

Conte said: "We are ready to fight with all our strength to face this hard situation".

"This was the ideal response of champions", said Conte, who was overseeing his 50th match in charge of the Blues.

"We dominated the game and had the better chances first and second half".

But all good things come to an end, and Chelsea in the coming weeks lost to the closest rival, Tottenham Hotspur, which ended the winning streak. But despite this we showed great desire to stay compact, not lose the balance'.

Conte has revealed that the France midfielder Bakayoko had a slight knee injury when he joined the club. It was an awesome performance from David.

Former Juventus and Italy boss Conte was appointed a year ago and won the Premier League title in his first season in charge, with Jose Mourinho having been sacked in December 2015 and temporarily replaced by Guus Hiddink.

Costa has also won the EFL Cup during his three-season stint spell.

'Wembley is a fantastic stadium, to feel this atmosphere is wonderful, ' said the Italian. And Pochettino insists his men were better, despite failing to breakdown Chelsea. If you look at most Premier League winners their goalkeeper has been extraordinary, and I just think Lloris is good, nothing more.
