Diego Costa’s header just before half-time was enough to extend Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League table to nine points and the win was also Chelsea’s 11th consecutive Premier League win.
Chelsea’s manager Antonio Conte believes playing as a team has helped Chelsea achieve this incredible run.
Conte told Sky Sports: “I think the most important thing… we are a team, in every moment of the game.
“When we have to suffer, we suffer together. When we have to play football, we play good football.
“These are the most important things. I hope to continue to work and improve in this way.
“I’m pleased for my players because I see every day their commitment and work-rate in every training session. It’s fantastic.”
