Chelsea has one hand on Premier League trophy after latest win

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.

Fabregas became the first player in the history of the Premiership who had 10 or more assists in 6 different seasons.

They are now in a position to secure the trophy, their second in the last three seasons, with just two points in the next three games.

"But this year was maybe even more special, because last year was a very bad year". West Brom have beaten Chelsea in three of their last five league meetings at The Hawthorns. "We're doing our damndest to make it a competitive game and a good game".

Nemanja Matic on what it's like to be so close to the Premier League title but with work still to do.

Kim Dong-chul, born a South Korean but believed to have USA citizenship, is serving 10 years of hard labor for subversion. The university said it could not comment further because Kim's detention was not related to his work at the university.

Chelsea capitalised on second-placed Tottenham Hotspur's 1-0 defeat by West Ham United on Friday by beating Middlesbrough 3-0 on Monday to move seven points clear at the top with three games left.

Despite agreeing a three-year deal upon moving to Stamford Bridge and enjoyed success in his maiden campaign in English football, Conte is being linked with a summer move to Inter Milan. "At that moment we had a lot of pressure, but in that moment my players showed me great commitment, great focus, desire to overcome this moment and to try to win the league". Seven of these defeats have come to nil, and with defenders Craig Dawson and Gareth McAuley the only players to score a few times in their last 12, they may struggle to cause the Blues any significant problem. Elimination against Celta Vigo would be a disaster for United, who would then go into their game against Tottenham on Sunday needing a victory just to keep alive any chance they had of qualifying for next season's Champions League. In this part of the season, we always said it's right to look at ourselves and not wait for the result of the other teams.

"We mustn't forget we have to take three points in these three games and tomorrow we have the first opportunity to take three points".

"But then we bounced back as a team very hard and we played very well".

"I know we're not there yet, but we're very close and it will be very enjoyable after a year ago". They are a strong team, a good coach and the atmosphere will be very hot.
