But a curling free kick from Marcos Alonso in the 68th minute wrapped up the win for Chelsea, who went into the match knowing that Tottenham had produced a statement performance in beating Watford 4-0 at White Hart Lane in Saturday's early kick-off.

Eden Hazard felt Chelsea passed another test on their way to the Premier League title after seeing off Bournemouth 3-1.

Speculation surrounding the future of the Belgian has been doing the rounds for a few weeks, but Antonio Conte has made it clear that Hazard is now happy at Chelsea. "We knew the result of Tottenham before the game, so the only thing [they could do] to stay at seven points was to win".

The team's training staff and coaches will monitor Durant, but there is no plan for a firm restriction on playing time . Coach Steve Kerr reiterated he will start Durant and take him out at signs he is tiring.

After assessing that "we were suffering in midfield", Antonio Conte brought on Nemanja Matic in midfield in a bid to have more control in the second half. "I'm happy for him but I'm happy for the team".

"I like the pressure".

"When you start the season as underdogs, I think it's greater if you are able to do this. I tell them that I am very happy at Chelsea", he told SFR Sport. "Then we conceded the goal and we lost a bit of confidence". There are seven games to go. Don't forget that last season they played for the title and we were tenth, so they are a really good team.

The Blues need a combination of 15 points from Chelsea wins and Tottenham losses and draws. The Toffees have proven to be a formidable force at Goodison Park this season and have won their last seven consecutive games at home in the league. We are showing great character, great desire, great will to fight for the title.

Bournemouth were in no mood to surrender to the league leaders, though, and they pulled a goal back three minutes before the interval. Ahmed Elhmohamady's own-goal, just after the half-hour mark, gave Pep Guardiola's team a lead at the interval, before they pressed home their advantage. The City win summed them up as the first half they were very expansive, they were scintillating and playing at their attacking best and went 2-1 up.

He was smiling and chuckling a bit towards the end of that statement, so he must have been joking a bit.

Moses, who has been absent for Chelsea's last two games, took just 17 minutes to show his importance again as he surged down the right and centered for Diego Costa, whose miskicked effort deflected in off the unfortunate Adam Smith.

City's defensive block was generally quite narrow, and in the moment that the full back would step out to press in wide areas, his supporting team mates generally struggled to shuffle over to maintain horizontal compactness.
