Keep winning and hope top-4 rivals slip up: Conte

Keep winning and hope top-4 rivals slip up: Conte

Fabregas' curling finish was a fitting way to bring up his half-century of goals in the Premier League, but it was Hazard's clinical exploitation of a Swansea error that made it, pouncing on Andy King's sloppy loss of possession, weaving his way forward and picking out the right pass. The men on the pitch ended the 90 minutes in the ascendancy, unlucky not to equalise. "We were quite comfortable", Fabregas said. 'We will do everything to stay up, we have the quality. Thanks to Dusan Tadic's brace (WATCH HERE) at St. Mary's Stadium, and Swansea's narrow defeat to Chelsea, Southampton now occupy 18th place and trail the Swans by a single point.

While Chelsea could have been more than a goal clear at the break, Swansea responded well in the second half and went close through Andre Ayew, Kyle Naughton, Tom Carroll and Wayne Routledge in the final quarter.

"It is something very positive if we play like that under pressure, the pressure is welcome because we play in a good way to stay in the division". "Just peanuts. But I'm happy, I'm not complaining".

"I'm not nervous, I'm confident because I know what we are capable of doing".

"In this moment we just depend on us, it's something we have in our hands, something we didn't have when I arrived".

Crystal Palace moved to the brink of English Premier League safety by beating 10-man Leicester 5-0 on Saturday.

"So far, I didn't work with this kind of challenge and it made things more hard in the past".

Chelsea may now have a battle of their own, too.

But this is not a team newly empowered by chasing their big rivals.

Conte's side refused to sit back after Fabregas' early strike and could have had their lead doubled on 21 minutes by Swansea defender Alfie Mawson when his attempted clearance looped over Fabianski and struck the top of the crossbar. 'In the league we struggle a lot for many reasons. I was lucky enough to be, when I started, surrounded by fantastic players full of experience and that helped me a lot, I always said that I was very lucky to start with that winning Invincibles team.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has insisted that the Blues are still in the fight for a Champions League spot.

For starters, they have not strung six league wins together - a run which is required now - all season.

"The only way we have to put a bit of pressure on the top four is to win".

'It's not up to us, so I would prefer to be in their position.

"But the advantage is for them because it's not up to us".
