Chelsea fans defiant as Tottenham keep Premier League title race alive

They showed their belief and their quality.

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur continued their fight for the English Premier League (EPL) football title, while Manchester City and Manchester United played respective draws here on Sunday.

This was Chelsea's toughest on paper in their remaining fixtures of the season, and they passed with flying colours, leaving their manager delighted.

"This feels massive", Cahill told broadcaster Sky Sports. They also have the home field advantage at Goodison Park, a place where they've beaten Chelsea in six of their last ten matches. We had a lot of patience for the right moment to hit, and we deserved the win.

After a goalless opening half, Chelsea took the lead in emphatic fashion through forward Pedro after 66 minutes.

"We didn't deserve this defeat with three goals difference", Koeman said, but he recognised why the scoreline was more emphatic than the performance. This is very important for our confidence for the final part of the season.

"The next game is Middlesbrough and if you don't win then you lose this victory", Conte added. We just have to look after ourselves.

The onrushing Fabregas picked up a threaded Costa pass before squaring to Willian to finish and ultimately give Chelsea a comfortable victory.

"Maybe we need to change our mentality a bit because I felt a bit less intensity in the game last week, maybe a bit less motivation".

Despite a quiet afternoon for Hazard and frustration for Diego Costa, Chelsea were able to call on the Spaniard Pedro, who had not scored in eight games but unleashed a superb left foot effort from 20 yards to break the deadlock.

"The second half was better than the first one, we had problems trying to control their counter-attacks and we couldn't settle", Guardiola said.

Only the top four will get into next season's Champions League.

"After the game, I must be relaxed when we win but I think it's very good to celebrate this win with the players, staff and fans". The Blues got off to a fast start on Tuesday against Southampton, with Eden Hazard scoring in the fifth minute.

MIDDLESBROUGH, England - Gabriel Jesus marked his return to Manchester City's starting lineup by rescuing a 2-2 draw against relegation-threatened Middlesbrough in the Premier League on Sunday.

"I think in adversity we become stronger".

Chelsea's No.10 was rather quiet, though, as Hazard failed to have a shot on target and made only one chance, with Koeman hailing the man-marking of Gueye.
