Conte Cautious As Chelsea Are Set To Clinch EPL Title

The formation switch was the turning point for Antonio Conte's team and the ultimate reason this Chelsea side has been this elite.

A win at the Hawthorns on Friday against West Brom will guarantee Chelsea this season's Premier League title.

"After one year when you work a lot and you suffer a lot, enjoying but also suffering, if you are able to win and to reach your target, then I think the moment of celebration must be fantastic. I'm not sure many will remember me these days but it will be an honour to present these awards".

Chelsea moved within three points of clinching the Premier League title with a 3-0 victory that condemned Middlesbrough to relegation Monday after goals from Spaniards Diego Costa and Marcos Alonso plus a tap-in by Nemanja Matic.

Cahill, 31, insisted that there was no complacency: "It's going to be a tough game at West Brom, it always is".

Ronald Koeman: 'Ross Barkley has one week to decide Everton future'
Lukaku has two years remaining on his deal, Barkley one, which is why Koeman has taken a different approach with each. We are already trying to get players in for next season in the front positions.

"We're looking forward to the game, the players have been very good this week". We're still doing the right things, there's no complacency.

He said: "It feels similar, last time we won it pretty early and in one of the games after we'd won it we went to West Brom and lost, Cesc [Fabregas] got sent off".

We must not forget we have to take three points in these three games.

Courtois spent three years on loan at Atletico Madrid, winning LaLiga before claiming a Premier League title in his first campaign in English football. "We're in a great position now and if we were to throw it away we'd be devastated". "But they're the games everybody wants to play in, they're exciting games".

Chelsea have won just once in their previous five trips to The Hawthorns and a fourth defeat in six would see West Brom bow out on a high in their final home game, ensuring the customary lap of honour would not be overshadowed by jubilant scenes from the visitors. It's not important where we win - it's important to win and then you have the time to celebrate wherever you want.
