Chelsea beat Swansea City 1-0 on Saturday to cut the gap with fourth-placed Tottenham, who play Watford on Monday, to just two points.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admits the game against Swansea City was tough.
“Tough game, but we knew this. Yesterday in the press conference I said this. Our expectation to have a tough game against a team that is fighting against relegation,” Conte said.
“In the last five games Swansea won four games and drew one at home. But I think that for us good win, we got three points which for us is very important to keep the hope alive to take a place in the Champions League.
“I think that Swansea played a good game – especially in the second half when they tried to push at us.”
