Middlesbrough relegated from Premier League

The Stamford Bridge side will clinch the title with two games to go if they beat West Brom on Friday, but Conte is adamant it was by no means an easy season for Chelsea.

"We haven't scored enough goals and ultimately you have to score goals to win football matches". N'Golo Kanté, for whom Fàbregas deputized so crucially in Monday's win over Middlesbrough, was back in training on Wednesday and could be fit to play. It was a great performance, my players showed commitment, work-rate for three important points.

And former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen is fully expecting to see Chelsea claim all three points and win the title with a narrow win on Friday night. They dominated the game right from the start.

"Cesc is one of the best examples of our season".

Premier League leaders Chelsea are on the verge of sealing the title after beating Middlesbrough 3-0 to condemn the North East outfit to relegation.

"It's not just tonight it's a full season", he told Sky Sports after the defeat at Stamford Bridge.

"It's our last game at home, and we've done reasonably well at home, so it would be nice to go out and get a result against them if we can, " said Albion midfielder Chris Brunt. Tomorrow's game is the most important game for us.

"For sure now I am a bit relaxed", Antonio Conte, the mastermind behind this title run, said.

"But this year was maybe even more special, because last year was a very bad year".

"It's great for me, for my players, for the club to see this great atmosphere", the Italian added.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois reckons winning the Premier League title with Chelsea this season will be all the sweeter after their struggles last term.

I haven't played every single game but I feel the quality of my minutes this season has been fantastic.

We are showing that we deserve to win this league, and now we must try to become champions in the next game. We owe it to our supporters and we have our own targets to hit. We must not forget we have to take three points in these three games.
