Chelsea are 'nearly there' after 'big win' - Hazard

Conte said: "A big win for us". We played the way we played and, of course, we are sad because we didn't win, but I am so, so happy to come here to Stamford Bridge and play the way we played.

Jurgen Klopp needs his Liverpool side to be more like Premier League leaders Chelsea. I think this is the best way for us (to think). Also he's growing in his mentality.

"On a personal level, for someone of his calibre - such an wonderful player, an unbelievable guy - to put his arm around you and help your confidence, it's been absolutely fantastic to me". So we must make six wins and the 18 points we need.

"We are so polite in our defeats and especially we are so polite when we win. Otherwise it will be a good season, but not a great season".

"We will remember this season if we win".

However, Pochettino was unfazed by his comments, explaining: "I didn't hear him say that but I can understand".

Conte is short of motivational words.

"In Italy it's easier for me to find the right words to motivate my players". Sergio Agüero made good use of Thibaut Courtois' rare goalkeeping error to level the score in 26th minute of the game. "So this is a good win for us against a top team, with great players and the best coach in the world".

John Stones spurned a stoppage-time opportunity to equalise for City, who must now recalibrate and focus on securing Champions League qualification.

Chelsea travel to 13th-placed Bournemouth on Saturday. But it's not enough.

"It's a massive incentive to get out of the bottom three, Boro was a six-pointer", he said. We got zero. Football is results.

Looking through Chelsea's remaining fixture list, they do have a couple of testing games away to Manchester United and Everton but they finish with matches against Middlesbrough, West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland who will surely be relegated by then.

The Belgium forward has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, but Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois, Hazard's global team-mate, is anxious to see the 26-year-old remain at Stamford Bridge and fire the west London club towards its next target. We compete against us.

"I don't like to be reactive". He was nominated I think once in his career here as player of the month.

"I like the way they play".

However, Dele Alli's 88th-minute equaliser for Tottenham followed by stoppage-time strikes from Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen means Chelsea's lead remains seven points with eight games of the season remaining.

The Belgium worldwide has proven a key figure in the west London side's title bid in the current campaign after a return of 13 goals and five goals in 28 games in the Premier League.
