Chelsea has one hand on Premier League trophy after latest win

Fabregas controlled the game against Middlesbrough

Fabregas began the season on the bench after new signing N'Golo Kante took his place, but he has played an increasingly prominent role in recent weeks.

As Cesc Fabregas composed Chelsea's march to the brink of the English Premier League title, it was hard to believe the midfielder was making just his 11th start of the campaign on Monday.

Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0 on Monday.

Stamford Bridge chiefs are now confident Conte will snub interest from his homeland to agree an extension.

Conte has won Serie A titles with Juventus and steered the club to a Champions League final, but he sees the Premier League triumph as another big moment in his career.

Though Courtois insists Chelsea will do all they can to win the title at the earliest opportunity on Friday, the keeper has acknowledged the difficulty of an away trip to the Hawthorns. Nemanja Matic then produced a second-half strike to rule out any remote chance of a shock comeback to preserve Boro's Premier League status for at least another weekend. "We must focus and prepare well and West Brom away won't be easy, but we are in a good moment and with concentration and a good attitude we will try to win".

Antonio Conte says guiding Chelsea to the Premier League title from last season's 10th-placed finish would be one of his best achievements as a manager. Because I saw in this season that he put himself in this team in every moment, if he played or didn't play.

"Now we are very close", Conte said.

"This game was very important for us after the defeat for Tottenham", Conte told Sky Sports. On the verge of winning the title, Conte went over to the Middlesbrough fans and applauded them after the game, while embracing with Boro manager Steve Agnew as his side has been relegated following the defeat. For sure, when you play against City and win the way we did, the confidence improved.

Just 10 minutes later, Marcos Alonso doubled his side's lead when he steered home his sixth league goal of the season following a deflection from Middlesbrough goalkeeper Brad Guzan's thigh. 'Obviously we've come up short'.

"Now is not the right time to think about this because we have to take three points, but afterwards then I hope the players celebrate in the right way".
