Chelsea, who did not play in Europe this season thanks to a 10th-placed finish in 2015-'16, can wrap up the Premier League title on Friday if they beat West Bromwich Albion.

"We're very close, and it will be very enjoyable after previous year". "You can not buy big players and say, 'We do not want the ball.' Big players want the ball".

"For sure now, I'm a bit relaxed". "This was a big, big step for us". We're looking forward to it.

"It is a really good moment for Chelsea, being close to the target, but we must not forget we need three points. They are eighth in the league and have had a very good year".

Their fate was sealed at Stamford Bridge by goals from Chelsea trio Diego Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic.

Fabregas began the season on the bench after new signing N'Golo Kante took his place, but he has played an increasingly prominent role in recent weeks.

Opta have confirmed that Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has now been awarded his 11th assist of the Premier League campaign. At the start (he) didn't play a lot.

"Every opponent who goes there has a hard game". And then he's playing in every game.

"We are still doing the right things, there is no complacency".

"At that moment we had a lot of pressure, but in that moment my players showed me great commitment, great focus, desire to overcome this moment and to try to win the league. Now he's deserving this".

They are now in a position to secure the trophy, their second in the last three seasons, with just two points in the next three games.

The only people associated with Middlesbrough to emerge with any credit from their trouncing in west London were the loyal fans who made the long trip down from the north-east and never stopped singing throughout the match.

"It's important to celebrate your win, but also to have great respect and clap this type of situation". I don't think Antonio will expect anything different.

Wenger pointed to the trend of the Premier League's top teams, and said a lack of European football also helped.
