Antonio Conte guided the Blues to an impressive 3-1 victory against Swansea, and the win took Chelsea one step closer to the title.

Conte reveals he’s lucky to have such great players at his disposal.

Speaking after the game, he said: “It’s not easy. To keep the concentration for the whole championship is not easy, but I have a lot of players that played and won in the past. They know very well the way we must continue to try to stay at the top of the table and win the title.

“For this reason, I am lucky. If it happens sometime that I can see them a bit relaxed, it’s right for me to go into them and help them be focused at every moment, but honestly, until now, it wasn’t necessary to keep the concentration and focus of my players.

“I have a team that until now deserves to be at the top of the table. Then, if we are able to win the title, I don’t know. We want to keep this position at the top. We are playing good football with good intensity, scoring a lot of goals, not conceding a lot. We deserve to be there.”
