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

The Blues have a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League after defeating Middlesbrough 3-0 on Monday.

"We're very close. We must be honest". Now we need to do another step. "We have to reflect on what's gone wrong".

"Friday we have the first chance, but we must know to play against West Brom is not easy. They will want to play a top game against us". "Chelsea just had too much for us tonight".

Conte has called on his players to maintain their focus and win the title at the first opportunity, on Friday at The Hawthorns.

'With the national team in our worst period, then Chelsea at a place where this could be another big, big step for me. We need to take three points to win the title. "We're preoccupied chasing two trophies, nothing else really matters besides that. It was a great performance, my players showed commitment and work-rate for three important points", he said.

"The target is very close and we must have enthusiasm, will, desire to take this target". We shall have to wait and see.

Conte has managed to turn Chelsea back into title winners after the Blues finished tenth last season.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Monday night, Conte said: "Cesc is one of the best examples of our season".

I haven't played every single game but I feel the quality of my minutes this season has been fantastic.

Our feature immediately after the game urged the player to snub overtures from Liverpool and Manchester United and become the main man under Conte next season.

The Italian added: "Last season was very bad and this season, don't forget we started with a lot of problems. Now Cesc is showing himself to be a fantastic player". "I am pleased for him".

Monday saw Conte's Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0 in a very lopsided defeat that was of major effect for the opposition as well.

"Everyone is devastated", he admitted. "We've got to try and bounce back as quickly as possible".

"We've pulled up short".

"It's very, very frustrating - it's a very silent dressing room in there", Agnew told Sky Sports.

"We can only reflect over the 36 games we've played".
