GETTYAntonio Conte doesn't want Chelsea to hire an English assistant
The Blues arrived at Dean Court only four points clear at the top after Tottenham's 4-0 win over Watford earlier on Saturday but they comfortably restored their seven-point advantage.
Some 12 months down the line, that annus horribilis is about to be buried away in the annals if Chelsea now swipe the title under Antonio Conte.
Chelsea's menacingly unsafe attacking midfielder Eden Hazard recorded his 14th goal of the Premier League season on Saturday afternoon at the Vitality Stadium against AFC Bournemouth.
Asked if United will gain extra motivation by attempting to dent Chelsea's title drive, Conte replied: "I do not know about this, I think Manchester United for sure will have good motivation, because we are playing against Chelsea".
"We started the game very well with great attention and focus". "When you play after your opponent and you see your opponent very close, it can bring a bit of pressure". If I don't see pressure, I put some on. "Because I think that the pressure gives you the best of yourself". This is a good answer.
Fraser fired narrowly wide four minutes after the interval as Bournemouth continued to threaten, then Costa failed to turn Alonso's low cross home as he sought his 50th Premier League goal. "And they will be very worthy champions and seven points is plenty with seven games to go". "What we've historically done is always try to win and that's the same aim no matter how many points you have and how many games are left". Chelsea's previous meeting wth Everton, similarly to United, was a comprehensive game they won 5-0 at Stamford Bridge.
But just when Chelsea thought they could coast home, Bournemouth hit back.
King's goal extended Chelsea's run without a clean sheet to nine Premier League games, but Conte was pleased with his team's reaction to the setback. "We have to be pleased with this game".
City's defensive block was generally quite narrow, and in the moment that the full back would step out to press in wide areas, his supporting team mates generally struggled to shuffle over to maintain horizontal compactness.
Jose Mourinho says the demands on young players is too great.
The Chile global was recalled in goal for his first Premier League appearance since January 21, but all he had to do in the first half was punch away one cross from Kamil Grosicki.
"I have to compliment Chelsea, they're an outstanding team and their system works very well for them".
Costa's form has dramatically declined since Chelsea blocked that move to China - he has scored just three Premier League goals since January 22 - and speculation that 28-year-old could depart in the summer has not died down.
