Chelsea manager says his team will get even better

The real race is for top four.

Dawson fired the home side ahead in the 12th minute after a Nacer Chadli corner before Alexis Sanchez levelled three minutes later with a composed finish from a delightfully weighed pass by midfielder Granit Xhaka.

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

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte described Diego Costa as an example to his team-mates after the English Premier League soccer leaders went 13 points clear with a 2-1 win at Stoke City.

With the teams level after 70 minutes, Conte - who was without star forward Eden Hazard due to a reported muscle injury - changed his much-vaunted 3-4-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1 and Chelsea responded by upping the pressure to force a late victor.

But Stoke would not be outdone and were given a penalty on 37 minutes when referee Taylor saw a needless nudge by Gary Cahill on Jonathan Walters as Thibaut Courtois was coming out to collect a high ball. They pushed the Blues all the way in a 4-2 loss back in December, a match in which Peter Crouch returned to the side to score his first goal for over a year.

They would, however, recover well and go on to win 9 of the 11 games in all competitions after that and have managed to make themselves a 10 point lead atop the Premier League table.

For Gary Cahill it was a moment of redemption.

A day after being drawn against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals, Leicester won 3-2 at West Ham to record a fourth straight win since Craig Shakespeare succeeded Claudio Ranieri as manager.

Riyad Mahrez, Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy - three of the main protagonists of last season's title triumph - stunned the Hammers with first-half goals. Youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave Everton lead in the ninth minute from a Tom Davis cross. Tuttosport states that the 21-year-old striker, who is the son of Atletico Madrid boss Diego, will be targeted by Toffees boss Ronald Koeman if he loses Romelu Lukaku this summer. A neutral might have been thinking that this game has got a draw written all over it so we wanted to keep going.
