Chelsea passed 'big psychological test' with Southampton win, says Antonio Conte

Cesc Fabregas reveals the major difference between Conte Wenger and Mourinho

Tottenham will be feeling the heat after Chelsea beat Southampton 4-2 to edge closer to the Premier League title, say Blues goalscorers Eden Hazard and Gary Cahill.

Ryan Bertrand scored a stoppage-time consolation but it mattered little as the win moves Chelsea seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham, who face Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Chelsea defender David Luiz has expressed his delight at reaching the FA Cup Final, following the Blues' 4-2 win over Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday evening.

"Our answer was very good". "I always said I was very pleased with his commitment and work for the team". I told you I am sure he is keeping his goals for the final part of the season.

One player who will have been delighted with the victory was Cahill, who returned to action after spending two nights in hospital with gastroenteritis last week.

'But we must think this race is open.

Conte also joked that Diego Costa is fulfilling the manager's promise that he was saving his goals for the end of the season, after the Spanish striker ended an eight-game drought by scoring Chelsea's final two clinching goals. Goals are your life. He always worked for the team.

Belgian worldwide Eden Hazard continued his impressive form this term for Chelsea as he scored the first goal in the 5th minute after being set up by Diego Costa.

Nene ideal solution for Rockets in Game 4 win over Thunder
The journalist asked Adams why the team underperform with their star guard on the bench - a statement Westbrook took offence to. Whether he was shooting a 3-pointer or driving to the basket, the Thunder was continually whistled for making illegal contact.

Asked about the persistent speculation that Costa might leave Chelsea after the current season, Conte said such talk seemed to be an attempt to distract his players from their target of winning the title.

"I know if I kick the ball then probably the referee sends me off".

Eden Hazard does not believe that he has the right attributes to succeed John Terry as Chelsea captain next season, despite skippering national side Belgium in the past. These are the most important things for us.

"I try game after game to be more selfish".

Southampton boss Claude Puel rued the concession of goals at crucial periods in the game. "He scored two lovely goals where he showed good quality and good combinations between him and his team-mates".

It was a better performance than against Manchester City. But we conceded the goals in bad moments, after five minutes, just before half-time, just after half-time. this made the difference.

"After three years you can see how the team is improving every year and all our decisions so far are good".

Chelsea are at the top of the Premier League table with 75 points thanks to the marvelous ball handling skills of young stud Diego Costa. But I'm pleased for the great effort, the fantastic effort of my players. "I'm happy for him".
