Conte: Champions League dreams not in our hands

Conte: Champions League dreams not in our hands

The Blues had the type of game Conte was anticipating but achieved the type of result he was sure they needed to the delight of the Italian who secured the Premier League title in his first season at Stamford Bridge.

"It won't be easy, we know they will play against Watford".

"Our top scorer has scored only 12 goals".

Cesc Fabregas' 50th Premier League goal was enough to secure victory for the Blues, who have three matches remaining.

"That is the reality - the stats speak very well", the Italian manager added.

'But we could be more clinical to kill the game.

"But instead we kept the game in the balance and it happened against West Ham the same".

With Southampton seemingly having the momentum, Swansea might have to take more chances at Bournemouth next weekend to avoid a do-or-die final week.

"It could have happened the same today".

"When I arrived here we were five points adrift", Carvalhal said. Third-place Liverpool could yet drop out of the top four after Stoke condemned the Champions League semifinalists to a third draw in four domestic games.

Bournemouth fell behind again nine minutes into the second half. "We knew we had to win, no matter how we played". "The bad things is it's not up to us but we have to put the pressure on".

- Cesc Fabregas' goal was his 50th in the Premier League, making him the third Spanish player to reach the milestone in the competition after Fernando Torres (85) and Diego Costa (52).

While Chelsea look upwards for others to stumble, Swansea are looking downward with increasing nervousness.

There was also a late bust-up between the Chelsea skipper and Jordan Ayew after the Swansea striker shoved the defender in the back with a late challenge, although Cahill went down holding his head.

"I saw everything I wanted to see except fluency and fun and joy", Klopp said.

Mike van der Hoorn got in the way of a goal-bound Victor Moses strike soon after, while Alfie Mawson clipped his own crossbar attempting to clear a loose ball as Chelsea dominated the opening period. He takes the ball and Dyer together.

Without loan striker Tammy Abraham, who wasn't eligible to face his parent club Chelsea, they lacked punch in the penalty area. I thought it would be very hard a few weeks ago as the teams above us are very, very good and they don't normally drop them sort of points.

The draw left Liverpool needing a maximum of four points from their remaining two matches to guarantee qualification for the Champions League via a top-four finish.
