Middlesbrough relegated after 3-0 defeat at leaders Chelsea

Antonio Conte is on the brink of adding another league title to his CV

However Chelsea's remarkable form this season will encourage owner Roman Abramovich to sanction a lucrative long-term deal.

Chelsea can be crowned champions at West Brom on Friday night while Sunday could spell the end of Hull's stay in the top flight.

The double Player of the Year victor was ruled out of Monday's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough with a thigh problem.

The midfielder made only his 11th Premier League start of the season but he was clearly the London football club's match-winner, inventively creating goals for Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic either side of half-time at Stamford Bridge.

"It's been a different year for me, I'm used to playing every year at every club I've been at but I've matured a lot". I didn't think that we at any time panicked about the way we played. West Brom have beaten Chelsea in three of their last five league meetings at The Hawthorns. On the other, this match was devastating for Middlesbrough who is now relegated from the premier league.

Such was the number of opportunities Fabregas gifted to his teammates during the first half that injured Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi tweeted "Cesc is like Santa on a pitch". "We were well organised but we didn't get the foothold in the game", said Agnew.

"This moment is a really good moment for us because we are so close to reaching a fantastic target", he said. The PFA Players Player and Football Writers Footballer of the Year missed just his second game of the campaign with the fitness issue but is available again as the Blues hone in on the title.

Chelsea have now extended their lead at the Premier League's summit to seven points - meaning a victory over West Bromwich Albion on Friday will win them the 2016/17 title. "I feel the quality of my minutes has been fantastic, my contribution is perhaps bigger than a full season where I play every game", he added. It is big and this is our answer to Tottenham because they won nine games and lost only one in their last 10 games.

Swansea climbed out of the relegation zone last weekend when they capitalised on Hull's surprise home defeat to Sunderland by beating Everton. "We want it to become a great season". 'Obviously we've come up short'.
