Cahill pushing for return for Chelsea against Southampton

Eden Hazard and Diego Costa were among the goals as Chelsea recorded a 4-2 win over Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN is confident that Tottenham Hotspur's FA Cup semi-final defeat at the hands of Chelsea will give them extra motivation in their quest to be crowned Premier League champions.

While an away trip to Chelsea will be a tough task, Southampton will have former Blues player Oriol Romeu back after a two-game suspension. "We played the football and played in an exciting way, but it wasn't enough to win the game".

During his decorated playing career, Conte saw Juventus both prevail and collapse down the title stretch, and he does not want his players to become fixated on nearest challengers Spurs, who travel to Crystal Palace on Wednesday. But we must think this race is open.

"They are a fantastic team that want to win the title, but for us as well it is important to take points". "We are talking about players who wrote the history of this club", he said.

"If my goals help to win games then that's good".

Antonio Conte's doubled their lead soon after the intermission from a perfectly executed short corner, with Fabregas curling in a move that started with Hazard to find Costa waiting at the far post to beat his defender and put Chelsea in firm control of the match.

"But we have trained very well this season and we have a lot of energy to face this type situation", Conte added.

North Korean official says will continue missile tests
Trump said that the deciding factor in easing tensions between the two countries will be how much the DPRK's leader desires peace. Pyongyang has threatened the U.S. with an "all-out war", asserting that it will continue to test missiles on a regular basis.

"Gary trained yesterday and also today", Conte said.

"I think the most important thing is to look at ourselves".

"It's a shame that with the quality of this game we conceded four goals tonight", Puel said.

"It shows my choices were right for the game against Tottenham and for the game against Southampton". I prefer to lose a game than to have a selfish player.

But midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg says the calibre of the opposition means they will have no trouble motivating themselves.

"It's the first time in a long time that we've played [before Tottenham] so we knew how important it was to get the win".

"We lost last weekend against a great team and for the rest of the season, it is always good to have the confidence up". "It is normal to check his condition and I want to speak very well with him tomorrow before I take the decision".
