Five games to go, four points clear of second-placed Tottenham, but still my nerves are jangling.

I guess they`ll only calm down when it becomes mathematically impossible for Chelsea to be caught by Tottenham and the Premier League title is ours once again.

This weekend, both sides have tough games. Chelsea travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton, whilst Tottenham host Arsenal in a North London derby.

Many Chelsea supporters perceive the trip to take on Everton as our hardest fixture between now and the end of the season, with games against Middlesbrough (h), Watford (h), West Bromwich Albion (a) and Sunderland (h) to follow.

At his pre-match press conference, ahead of the Everton game, Antonio Conte was asked if he thought Everton was the hardest Premier League fixture had left to play, with the boss responding with,

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been addressing the media and started his news conference by confirming all his players are fit and available for Sunday’s game at Everton.

‘I don’t know, but Everton are a really good team, a strong team, with great players in their squad and a physical team.

‘They have a good coach, a good manager. They play organised football. It will be a very tough game for us, for sure, but at the end of the season, every game becomes tough for many different reasons.

‘For us, it’s very important to look at ourselves, prepare very well and arrive to play this game with great physical condition, good organisation, to know our tasks defensively and offensively.”


Surely, if we win against Everton, we have one hand on the trophy, do we not?

  • personally, i don’t like being complacent but not for this game. Everton will be the easiest and weakest opponent we face in our march to the title. Only the Bromwich match will be the toughest IMO; the rest will be like chaffs easily blown away by the wind
    …#BLUES4EVER#…

  • Kudos merlin ..i feel the same…a nervous wreck..! there a good team and we will have to be at our very best or rely on the 50/50 gooners !!…gutted for ibrahimovic buy the way reminded my of zouma !! KTBFFH..we edge it and we are half way there..KTBFFH.

  • The only team that has won at Goodson this season are Liverpool , considering Spuds will massacre Arsenal , this one makes me nervous

  • We have to try and win at Everton….if we do, my nerves will be calmed because Spuds will beat Arsenal. Victory for us, should be enough to see off Spuds…… Come on the Blueeeeessssss!!!!!! Get the 3 pts

  • The toughest match of the remaining lot, no doubt. However, with our current form I am not nervous. I am 100%confident we get the job done. Once Lukaku is marked out, their attack becomes blunt. I am glad Costa has rediscovered his scoring form, and Harzard is blazing.

  • I don’t know that this is our hardest out of the remaining games; I wasn’t expecting us to lose against Crystal Palace, so it’s hard to tell which game will be the toughest. I just need us to play every remaining game like it’s the toughest one. We can’t afford to lose any point now as Spurs doesn’t look like they’re going to drop any points… Our inability to keep clean sheet is a worry, we basically have to score at least 2 or 3 goals to win matches these days. Keeping fingers crossed though.

  • Keep Lukaku quiet and we have a good chance of three points. Big game, but they’re all big games now.

  • I’ll be very much happy if Arsenal wins or draw with Spurs. However, dwelling on Arsenal’s performance isn’t the best of option. Our destiny lies in our own hands. I’m scared of Everton at all. I strongly believe the team knows the importance of this more than us l. Let’s KTBFFH
