Antonio Conte says Chelsea finishing in top four would be a success

Chelsea's Spanish striker Alvaro Morata runs with the ball during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Brighton and Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge in London

Antonio Conte's men have kept clean sheets in their past three games and - even though the title race looks to be over - they'll have their sights firmly set on finishing at least runners up to leaders Manchester City. "We have a lot of great games to face".

It'd be hard for Conte not to be encouraged after he left Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and Andreas Christensen out of his lineup and still clobbered a Premier League opponent.

If there's one Chelsea player who Stoke will focus on more than the rest, it's No.9 Alvaro Morata.

"We need to have all my players in the best form, and we know very well in January will be a hard time because of the games, and in February the Champions League starts again, so I need all my players at the top of their game".

Meghan 'lost Bond girl role'
Had she not been betrothed to Prince Harry , it's possible we would've witnessed Meghan Markle saunter right into the arms of Daniel Craig .

"I don't know if we can do this for the title because it depends on Manchester City, who are doing something extraordinary".

"The appearances have come quickly since the start of last season". We must go game by game. "We've scored less, but we've conceded less, too".

Hughes watched on as his makeshift back four were pulled this way and that as Antonio Rudiger, Danny Drinkwater and Pedro put Chelsea 3-0 ahead after just 23 minutes.

"For me it's very important to see my players have chances to score".

Two Egyptian Policeman Killed During Attack on Church
Pope Tawadros II says that since 2013 there have been 37 sectarian attacks on Christians in Egypt, almost one incident per month. A bomb explodes in a Coptic Christian church in Alexandria as worshippers depart a midnight mass, killing more than 20 people.

The scoring was completed by a second-half penalty from Willian and an individual effort by Davide Zappacosta, but by then Hughes' thoughts had already turned to the crucial game against fellow strugglers Newcastle.

"All my players deserve credit and I trust in all my players".

"We might have Erik Pieters as well so the landscape of Monday's game changes completely for us hopefully. We are still in the Champions League, the FA Cup and Carabao Cup so we will do the best that we can to try to win something".

Game over after 23 minutes, unless of course the home side does "a Liverpool" and lets their commanding position slip. "On that basis it would be a good return, so Monday becomes a big game for us".
