"I don't smell the success, because there are seven matches to go", Conte said.

"When you play after your opponent and you see them very close it's normal that it can bring a bit of pressure". I live off pressure.

"I like the pressure".

"But in terms of flair players that I played with, of that type, Eden and what he's doing now is probably the best".

Conte, however, would not accept that two victories in quick succession after last weekend's surprising defeat by Crystal Palace had guaranteed the title for Chelsea.

Bournemouth came out in the second half determined to match Chelsea but Steve Cook's foul on Costa made life harder for the hosts.

With Chelsea FC now leading Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table by seven points, and eight games left to play. Chasing Tottenham will be under no illusions - based on Chelsea's latest win, the champions elect are serious about wrapping up the title as soon as possible. "The team deserve full credit because the energy and the way they played was fantastic", added Pochettino, who also welcomed back top scorer Harry Kane after an ankle injury. And Tottenham is stronger than last season. However, he has been very important for the team throughout the entire season. This would enable City to shift over and for Sane to press Zouma whilst approaching at an angle from a central position, forcing the pass to go to the wing back. "I don't know the other teams' results but I think there is a space between us and the other teams".

"Otherwise you must fight, you must play every game to try to win".

Giraffes are pregnant for 15 months, according to Animal Adventure Park . "The gestation on giraffes can vary quite a lot". Zookeepers say that Orla delivered her new addition smoothly following a four-hour labor after her 15-month pregnancy.

Conte also praised Costa after the match despite his continuing lack of goals, and preferred to concentrate on the win itself rather than the defence's continuing habit of giving away goals.

A 4-4-2 formation with two wingers and two strikers reflecting manager Eddie Howe's unbending commitment to attacking football may seem quaint and perhaps a little outdated, but it is entertaining to watch; Bournemouth try to give everyone a game.

The league leaders are back with seven points clear at the top. The Baggies manager Tony Pulis has a very organised team at his disposal and they have had a fantastic season so far.

Manchester City were able to dominate possession in the first half despite being the visiting side, controlling the ball for 62% of the opening 45 minutes.

Spurs' 4-0 thrashing of Watford in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off handed Chelsea the challenge of winning on the south coast to maintain their league stranglehold.

"We must be pleased with the game".

And when quizzed on his regard for Mourinho's time and success at Chelsea, Conte would only reply: "I think I have already replied to this question before". He's doing more interviews, he's speaking English, and those things important when you become a player of his level.
