Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had admitted that he has little job security even though his team are now sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League and has spoken of the difficulty of instigating any long-term plans as a football manager.

Sitting eighth in the Premier League, already eight points off league-leading Manchester City, Conte promised he'd "find a solution". "We need 29 points to be sure of winning the league", Conte told reporters.

"For this reason I'm lucky".

"We deserved a lot to win the game".

'Hopefully I've reversed the situation from the beginning of the season to now and hopefully I can keep playing like that to keep my place'.

Chelsea's win was their 12th in succession at Stamford Bridge, equalling a club record, and was achieved despite the shock of going into the break level after Fernando Llorente's equaliser in stoppage time.

This is the latest manifestation of a phenomenon which has been troubling our democracy for a long time". Residents said they had attacked the shops because they were dens of prostitution and drug dealing.

"To create a team, and to try to exploit every single player, the talent of every single player in the best way you must find right solution, the right system, to create a family spirit, a good spirit".

The left back picked up a loose ball on the edge of the penalty box in the 34th minute and drilled in a right-footed shot, giving Palace their first home win in the league since December and lifting them out of the bottom three. They are deserving this. "Every day I see them during the training sessions, the commitment and behaviour".

Fabregas has started only six Premier League games this season under Antonio Conte, but has an impressive return of three goals and seven assists in just 639 minutes of league football.

And in Conte's eyes, the Spaniard's contribution confirmed the options he has available in central midfield.

Conte continues to preach a "one-game-at-a-time" sermon despite Chelsea's huge lead at the top, and his players are not veering from the message. "I've worked very hard to make it to 300 [games] and all I can say is thank you to everyone who has helped me reach this mark - to Arsenal, to Chelsea, to Arsene Wenger, Mourinho, Hiddink and Antonio. I'm very happy for Cesc, but also Nemanja". "He's a really good player", he said. He has started only 11 of those games, but manages to show his importance and send constant reminders to his manager about his ability and importance to the squad.

Swansea manager Paul Clement was convinced his side should have had a second-half penalty when Cesar Azpilicueta handled the ball, but he insisted the defeat will not affect his side's prospects of staying up.
