EPL: Chelsea Retains Seven-point Lead, City End Winless Run

After London rivals Tottenham Hotspur thumped Watford 4-0 to cut their lead to four points, Chelsea faced a potentially hard visit to the sun-drenched south coast.

Jose Mourinho claims he can not win the Premier League title with Manchester United's young players and suggests Antonio Conte is adopting a similar mindset at Chelsea.

Marcos Alonso netted a picture-perfect free-kick as Chelsea triumphed 3-1 at Bournemouth on Saturday to restore their seven-point advantage at the top of the Premier League.

"And as good as Spurs are, Chelsea are so impressive and the job that Antonio Conte has done this season is remarkable bringing this squad together".

"It's a massive win for us, especially as we knew what Tottenham had done".

Two first-half goals ultimately inched Chelsea even further towards the title: the first ridiculous, the second sublime. "But that's normal. I'm very happy to face this type of situation, to play with only four points in front of our opponent".

In response, Syria's ally Russian Federation accused the USA of encouraging "terrorists" with unilateral actions. Meanwhile, Tillerson suggested that the airstrikes hadn't really changed priorities toward ousting Assad.

"I like the pressure".

"Because I think under the pressure you get the best from yourself". "This is a good answer", Conte told the BBC.

"It's logical that if we and Tottenham continue to win, it will be a race between us".

"It's important to go game by game. Now is one step closer to the title and we have seven games left".

However Chelsea are already considering a number of players who could compliment or replace Costa, including Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata. Yes, he played a significant part in two of Chelsea's goals, but he is not the player he was in the first half of the campaign.

At the beginning of March, Bournemouth were winless in eight league games, only five points above the relegation zone and being dragged into a fight for survival. We scored another goal and could have scored more against a really good team.

But the love in his heart didn't put his mouth behind the microphone: The hoped for Perry-Journey reunion failed to materialize. Instead, Arnel Pineda sang lead as the band performed hits including Don't Stop Believin' .

While it's easy to say that we ignore all that noise, it clearly filters back to the players and the manager, not only through pre- and post-match interviews, but through Twitter, Facebook, and whatever other fake or non-fake channels of media the youth of today uses to stay informed.

Costa had not scored in his previous four appearances for Chelsea, but manager Conte had expressed his confidence in the forward as a scorer and creator of goals.

"This year I hope will be different, that we win titles". Diego Costa is not actually playing that well at the moment, but they are still winning.

Mauricio Pochettino, speaking before Chelsea had played, said Spurs needed "patience, time and a little bit of luck" if they were to chase down the leaders.

"I have to compliment Chelsea, they're an outstanding team and their system works very well for them".
