Chelsea defeated Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium and it was an important win for the Blues.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte emphasized the importance of the win after other rivals like Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all got wins.
Conte said after the game: “This group are very honest. They are players who want to fight for something important. If we are able to do this, I don’t know, but for sure we have a great will to overcome the difficulty and try to stay there. In England, in this league, there are six top teams. Four go in the Champions League, and two have to stay out of the Champions League and play the Europa League.
“It’s a good win, also because the other top teams all won, apart from Tottenham. At this moment we must be realistic and go game by game. We have 19 points and we deserve to have 19 points.”
