Gary Cahill hails 'massive step' towards securing Premier League title

With Chelsea facing Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, Hazard feels the Premier League leaders have a chance to "create a bit of trouble" in the minds of Tottenham Hotspur by picking up the three points.

Costa returned to the Chelsea first XI tonight after being dropped to the bench for the 4-2 FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham on Saturday. The most important is to enjoy the present. "I think for us it was important because we reached the final of the FA Cup, a great competition".

Chelsea were third in Premier League spending last summer - their £123million outlay was behind City's £174m and United's £149m - but sit four points clear of Tottenham with six Premier League games to go. "Then I decided last 30 minutes to put Eden and Diego in, and then Cesc (Fabregas), because don't forget Cesc was very important also for us", Conte was quoted as saying by espnfc. "I think this situation we have to improve".

A blank tonight would have equalled Costa's longest run without scoring for Chelsea - a seven game stretch towards the end of the 2014/15 season. When you arrive in a great team like Chelsea it's very hard to try to speak and lead.

Costa then headed in his first club goal in eight games after the break and added a second a couple of minutes from the end when he was set up by substitute Pedro.

But for the first time in over a month, his team have an opportunity to put pressure on Tottenham by playing before them, with Spurs crossing London to face Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Most Americans say Trump hasn't kept campaign promises
Gravis Marketing, a nonpartisan research firm, conducted a random survey of 1,665 registered voters across the United States. About four in five Americans are anxious about health care, with 49 percent worrying a lot and 33 percent worrying a little.

"I am very happy if he is able to pay tomorrow but also I want to underline Nathan Ake's performance [against Spurs]".

It was Eden Hazard and Costa who combined to make the opening impact vs. the Saints five minutes in. Both Southampton goals came from former Chelsea players, with Oriol Romeu and Ryan Bertrand making it 12 league games since Conte's side kept a clean sheet.

Chelsea are obviously out in front at 1.44, but betting on a Southampton win (however crazy) might be the biggest return at 8.00.

"We knew beforehand that this game can maybe have an impact for the rest of the season, but in football you need to believe because everything is possible and we don't know what will happen in the next few weeks", said Lloris. "I was confident because I was seeing the team have a great will and a great desire to win".

"We played against a great team and against two great players tonight".

Asked if they pair would start against Southampton, Conte said: "I have another day to decide our best 11 but I think they're in good condition and good form".
