Gary Cahill's late victor helps Chelsea extend lead at top

Chelsea make exciting transfer promise to Antonio Conte Antonio Conte could enjoy a productive summer transfer window with Chelsea

The result sent Chelsea 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League, and Mark Hughes does not think anyone will catch Antonio Conte's men. I hope to win it, but there is a long way to go. "During the game it can happen to get kicked, it's normal, but the referee must pay great attention and try to respect the rules because football is a great sport", he added.

Along with Kante he's a front runner for the Premier League Player of the Season award, having rediscovered his form following a dip previous year under Jose Mourinho.

The Welshman said: "I've looked at it and they are saying there's a slight push from Berahino on Azpilicueta, but I didn't see him getting anywhere near the ball". Not only for him, but also for the team. The result has been that Chelsea FC have nearly cantered to the Premier League title.

The last time Stoke beat Chelsea in the league was by a one goal margin, as Marko Arnautovic acrobatically finished past Asmir Begovic ito compound Jose Mourinho's misery. It was a little bit feisty, we gave everything and I can not criticise our players.

Those bon mots were in rich supply Monday after he did the one thing everyone takes notice of - scoring the lone goal in Chelsea's 1-0 victory over 10-man Manchester United in the FA Cup quarterfinals. Blues manager Antonio Conte also introduced Cesc Fabregas off the bench, and the Spanish playmaker helped make the visitors more of a threat between the lines. Indeed, only against Spurs (11) has Fabregas provided more assists in the Premier League than versus Stoke (7). However, the Brazilian has failed to score in eight league appearances since that game.

Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte Remains Coy On Contract Talks
We have a target (to win the League and FA Cup) and it's important we concentrate on trying to reach that target. Stoke are without Glen Johnson but welcome back Marko Arnautovic, Xherdan Shaqiri and Wilfried Bony.

Costa was quickly unsettled and the home side's discipline, competitiveness, industry and ability to work up a noisy home crowd meant Chelsea knew they had been in a battle. "You saw by the reaction of their players after the game".

"My players were prepared to fight to win this game because it wasn't easy".

Chelsea are just 8/13 with Sky Bet to maintain their relentless title charge, with Stoke 19/4 for the win and 14/5 to hold the leaders to a draw.

Conte's delirious celebrations at the final whistle were the biggest compliment of all to Hughes, even though he is unlikely to interpret them as such.
