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?
