Pulis determined to make Chelsea wait for title celebrations

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are closing in on the title

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are closing in on the title

The Bosnian, who left Stoke City to join Chelsea in 2015, has made just seven appearances all season and only one of them was in the Premier League. This team will be low on motivation and although they will want to win, the determination will be a determining factor.

West Brom, winless in their last six, have lost their last three home games 1-0 and host Chelsea in their final match of the season at The Hawthorns.

"I don't know what thoughts will go through Conte's head", Carrera, now in charge of Russian side Spartak Moscow, told Tutti Convocati.

In his 106th match for Chelsea, he scored for the first time at Stamford bridge.

Since returning to the Premier League in 2010, West Brom have always managed to get a goal against the Blues at the Hawthorns and despite current form, history suggests that Chelsea will concede on Friday night.

He said: "In this case it is important to celebrate your win because for us it means we are very close to winning the title".

Conte has been able to use a settled side in the Premier League without the extra playing demands of Europe - a point that has been raised by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho - so next season will be more of a slog.

He is the second most fouled player in the league this season having been brought down 89 times as he attempts, on average, four dribbles-per-game.

"We can't just roll over and let them get the result they need to win the league".

China says it successfully tests new type of missile
Further, the recent missile test indicates that Beijing is proactively improving its defense and counterattack capabilities. Military analysts said the "rare high-profile announcement of the missile tests" was a response to the THAAD deployment.

"But the opportunity to go for the Champions League with Chelsea would be very tempting".

"Then, through work, through hard work, he improved a lot. We're in a great position now and if we were to throw it away we'd be devastated".

Conte praised Fabregas for forcing his way back into the starting XI, which he said epitomised the effort that his squad have put in this season.

"This development of Cesc is our development, because we started the season with a lot of problems".

Azpilicueta has also shown great leadership on the pitch, in a season where John Terry has taken a step back from his automatic starting role.

"I don't think it's about my situation".

"But this year was maybe even more special, because last year was a very bad year".

"Obviously I haven't played every game but I've played in the last 20 matches".
