A big win. Now we need to do another step. "It was a great performance, my players showed commitment, workrate for an three important points", the Italian told BBC Sport.

Goals from Diego Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic secured the victory, meaning Chelsea will win the title if they beat West Brom on Friday.

Chelsea eventually finished 10th in the table as Leicester, 5,000/1 pre-season no-hopers completed a remarkable title triumph.

On the verge of winning the title, Conte went over to the Middlesbrough fans and applauded them after the game, while embracing with Boro manager Steve Agnew as his side has been relegated following the defeat.

West Brom did make life very hard for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Tony Pulis will surely have a plan up his sleeve for this one.

Conte will surely play his strongest side, in the hope that Chelsea can rest players versus Watford with the FA Cup final coming into view.

Leeds left-back Charlie Taylor is a target and an agreement is close, with the 23-year-old set to leave Elland Road after boss Garry Monk said he refused to play at Wigan last weekend.

"We haven't scored enough goals and ultimately you have to score goals to win football matches".

Conte has called on his players to maintain their focus and win the title at the first opportunity, on Friday at The Hawthorns.

"For sure now I am a bit relaxed", Conte said. The game that could earn Chelsea their 6th English Premier League title.

"There are three games to go but always the most important is the next one".

"Obviously I haven't played every single game but I feel the quality of my minutes whenever I've been on the pitch has been fantastic, so maybe my contribution has been even bigger than when I've played more in other seasons". You must divide the fault of this, for this reason we started this season to solve problems and to find the right solution to change the situation that was created in the last season.

With just one win coming from their last nine outings, Boro captain Gibson conceded that they were below the top-flight standard for much of the campaign, but could not hide his devastation from the media.
