Leaders passed the test - Hazard hails Chelsea's battling spirit

Cesar Azpilicueta joins in as Marcos Alonso celebrates after scoring Chelsea's third goal.

Eden Hazard's wonderful finish carried Chelsea ever closer to the Premier League title as the Blues saw off Bournemouth 3-1 at Dean Court.

"I love Tottenham, they're probably my favourite team in the league to watch", Neville said.

"I think that every coach's real function is not only to win but to improve the players".

They say stranger things have happened, but on paper that would be an incredible feat.

Chelsea took control of the game after moving ahead and they did further damage just three minutes later when N'Golo Kante picked out Eden Hazard with a long ball, allowing the Belgian global to beat the offside trap, round Artur Boruc and slide the ball into the bottom corner.

The Cherries, though, have proved a nuisance to the top four this season and with King having scored 10 goals this calendar year, they were always going to pose a threat.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp urged his team to emulate Chelsea's steely streak when points are on the line.

Chelsea face the next test of their credentials at Manchester United next Sunday.

Five more wins will be enough to bring the Premier League trophy back to Stamford Bridge, and Alonso says there is a unity of goal among everyone at Chelsea to see it done.

The win sees Chelsea stay seven points clear of nearest rivals Spurs, with the title nearly in reach.

Conte said: "Don't forget that last season Tottenham fought for the title until the end".

'I think United for sure will have good motivation, because they are playing against Chelsea. "We've been there nearly all season, we are showing we want to be there, we're playing very good and fighting for it and that's what we need yo keep doing".

"To have a great season, to write history, you must win", said Conte.

The Chelsea team celebrating Marcos Alonso's free-kick goal. He raced towards goal, rounded Artur Boruc and calmly slotted the ball home. "If he is able to improve this situation, he is a top, top player".

"When you have this type of opponent (Tottenham) who is in good form and wants to catch you, it is important to have a good answer".

The Spain global has never before gone four Premier League games without a goal, but Conte highlighted the overall contribution of the striker, who has 17 league goals to his name this season.

"If he can continue to do that then he can go anywhere he wants".
