Monday was Fabregas' moment in the spotlight as Chelsea blew away Middlesbrough.

On the field, his four goals and 11 assists are evidence of the creative spark he's provided during his 15 substitute appearances for the first-choice duo of Kante and Matic, but equally important has been his impact when not playing.

The Stamford Bridge crowd loudly chanted Conte's name, particularly during the second half. We have worked a lot, we've worked very hard and I like to repeat that this is a good season.

None of the 21 Premier League meetings between these sides have ended goalless - the Baggies have only played more games without a nil-nil against Arsenal and Spurs (22) in the competition.

Conte has called on his players to maintain their focus and win the title at the first opportunity, on Friday at The Hawthorns.

North Korea sends protest to US Congress over sanctions
The sanctions package bill, which was imposed over the regime's weapons programs, was passed in the House by a vote of 419-1. The talks, which are held intermittently, are an informal opportunity for the two sides to exchange opinions and concerns.

"Everybody's worked so hard for a number of years to get back into the Premier League and we know how tough the Premier League is and obviously we've pulled up short. We need to make sure Boro bounce back very quickly".

Asked about Fabregas' performance after the Middlesbrough win, Conte said: "Cesc is one of the best examples for our season because he didn't start a lot".

But "normal service" has been resumed under Italian boss Antonio Conte, Mourinho's successor, and now west London club Chelsea will be crowned champions if they win away to West Bromwich Albion on Friday following Monday's 3-0 victory which relegated Middlesbrough. "We're still doing the right things, there's no complacency", Cahill said. "On Friday we have a good chance to finish - it won't be easy but for sure we're close to a fantastic achievement", he said. We started this season to try to solve the problems and find the solution to change the situation created in the previous season.

At former club Juventus, Conte had two seasons in the Champions League: Juve reached the quarterfinals in 2012-13 before being swept aside by Bayern Munich, and then failed to advance from its group the following year. We've pulled up short.

Courtois spent three years on loan at Atletico Madrid, winning La Liga before claiming a Premier League title in his first campaign in English football.
