Marcos Alonso scores ideal free kick vs Bournemouth

The Spain worldwide has never before gone four Premier League games without a goal, but Conte highlighted the overall contribution of the striker, who has 17 league goals to his name this season.

While the side maintained itsr seven-point lead over Tottenham atop the table with seven games to go, the Italian said there was still work to do.

"The team does well whenever we have pressure on us".

"Can Chelsea lose enough games and can Tottenham win all their games? We have to go on in this way, game by game and stay concentrated".

"We have seven finals left, every game is going to be massive, we are going to have to play each game as the last one because we need the points to get closer to the title", Alonso, the former Bolton Wanderers full-back, said. And Josh King's recent performances have been pivotal to that.

The defense though, has been a concern for Howe's men, who have let in as many as 56 goals, more than only Swansea, Hull and West Ham.

Yet what was ultimately so impressive about Chelsea was that, having reinforced their advantage with Marcos Alonso's freekick, they then simply shut Bournemouth out of the game.

A host of Sky Sports pundits have had their say on who should be named the Premier League's manager of the season.

Chelsea restored their seven point lead at the top of the Premier League by defeating Bournemouth 2-1.

The statistics actually underline that the difference this season between Chelsea and Manchester United is explained by the extra attacking qualities of Conte's team.

"Tottenham strengthened the team this season with two or three great players, and that I believe they're more powerful than last season".

Chelsea handled the knowledge of Tottenham's 4-0 win against Watford without difficulty as they saw off Bournemouth. Diego Costa, who has scored 17 times, has failed to find the back of the net in the last two outings.

"For sure it is important in every game to try to take three points and this game will be very tough".

For Bournemouth Tyrone Mings is still suspended, while Andrew Surman (knee) won't feature. Junior Stanislas is likely to face to late fitness test, if he has a chance to feature.

Whatever part Hazard played in Jose Mourinho's Chelsea sacking in December 2015, the 26-year-old has now hit back to his best under new Blues boss Antonio Conte.
