Never forget you're a star, Antonio Conte tells Chelsea playmaker Hazard

Antonio Conte's men stretched the lead to seven points with seven matches remaining after Tottenham had earlier in the day cut the lead between the top two to four points with an emphatic 4-0 thumping of Watford at White Hart Lane.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte insists he does not have any odor of the Premier League title only yet, despite his team's win over Bournemouth.

Chelsea delivered the flawless response to Tottenham Hotspur by winning 3-1 at Bournemouth on Saturday to restore their seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League table. "It's normal to have a good pressure [after Spurs won]".

"We have to stay focused and concentrated because it's sure Tottenham has great desire to win the title".

"I'm very happy to face this type of situation, and to play with only four points from our opponent". If I don't see pressure, I put pressure on.

"I remember in France I always scored against the same teams, but if you want to be a top player, you have to score against every team". "Then we conceded the goal and we lost a bit of confidence".

"It's logical that if we and Tottenham continue to win, it will be a race between us".

"It's easier to control the game when you score first".

The Chile global was recalled in goal for his first Premier League appearance since January 21, but all he had to do in the first half was punch away one cross from Kamil Grosicki.

When asked about Diego Costa's recent goal drought, Conte said: "Diego Costa provoked the first goal". The excessive 4vs1 overload with the two centre backs and two central midfielders against Diego Costa meant that they had too many players sat in a deep position outside Chelsea's defensive block.
