Chelsea's 3-0 win against Everton kept them on the brink of winning another title, with matches against West Brom, Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Watford still left to play. The Italian tactician could not hide his happiness after the final whistle as he run in the middle of the pitch to congratulate with his lads. Defeat left Arsenal six points off the Champions League places, albeit with a game in hand.

It was goalless after an hour, with Everton causing some problems but once Pedro scored a brilliant goal there was no coming back against the Premier League champions elect.

"It is not easy to be used to play every game for Bournemouth and to arrive for Chelsea and stay on the bench and sometimes understand".

However, Chelsea responded to a damaging 2-0 loss at Manchester United last month with comprehensive wins over Southampton and Everton.

However, Chelsea are being considered the favourites to re-sign their former player and there are also suggestions that Lukaku also wants to return to the west London club.

"We have created this link between me and the fans which is incredible", the Blues boss declared.

Chelsea's Gary Cahill, center, scores his side's second goal of the game during their English Premier League soccer match against Everton at Goodison Park, Liverpool, England, Sunday, April 30, 2017.

"We are four (points behind), there are four games to play. We knew this was a massive game, one of the hardest we had".

The checking out followers applauded their group off the area at the end, positive that there will be extra celebrations to come in the next few weeks.

The leaders do not play until next Monday and, although Conte's side will expect to beat second-bottom Middlesbrough, their visitors are desperate for points and can see a way out of the relegation mire after recent improved performances.

"We have to have great enthusiasm and great patience because I think we are having a great season but for it to become a fantastic season we must win", he told reporters.

Any team capable of stopping Conte and his players achieving the double this season will have to be a very good one.

According to the Standard, AC Milan have placed Fabregas top of their wish-list for the summer transfer window, and are prepared to part with as much as £30million to secure his signature.

"I'm sure they will not give up until end of the season". It doesn't happen. They went 13 wins in a row and matched the Premier League record.
