Fabregas lifts Chelsea in race for top four finish


Cesc Fabregas has warned Liverpool FC and Tottenham that he and his Chelsea FC team-mates will be doing everything they can to try and break back into the top four before the season is out.

Antonio Conte's side are now just two points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place, albeit having played a game more, as they battle to secure a place in next season's Champions League. "The bad things is it's not up to us but we have to put the pressure on". "Football is not simple and anything can happen".

Chelsea made a fast start to the match as N'Golo Kante capitalized on Andy King's poor control to unleash Eden Hazard, who shook off the challenge of Sung-Yueng Ki before setting up Fabregas to score n the 4th minute.

Conte, though, wants his side to develop the habit of scoring when on top - something he believes they have not done enough this season. 'The only way to put pressure on Tottenham is by getting three points in every game.

"But you must be very good to kill the game and you have to take the chances otherwise you risk your opponent trying to push".

It was a damaging defeat for Swansea and Carlos Carvalhal's team are now only one point above the relegation zone with three games left.

Matt Phillips gave West Bromwich Albion a glimmer of hope of staying in the English Premier League by securing a 1-0 win at Newcastle to extend the team's unbeaten run to four games.




Liverpool's 0-0 draw with Stoke earlier in the day gave a lift to Chelsea's hopes of still making the top four with three games remaining after mounting a dismal defense of its Premier League title.

Dusan Tadic breathed new life into Southampton's bid to beat the drop as his double sealed a crucial 2-1 success in the south-coast derby against Bournemouth at St Mary's. We dominated and created many chances, but we scored only one goal.

Fabregas played in a more advanced role and he took full advantage with a wonderful winning goal in the fourth minute.

The Blues are just sixth in the Premier League in goals scored (60), 38 behind behind league leaders Manchester City, who also dethroned them as champions.

It was the first time since early January that Swansea have lost a Premier League fixture at the Liberty Stadium, but their failure to find a goal threat means they remain in relegation trouble.

Chelsea looked shaky and survived a penalty appeal when Gary Cahill stepped on the foot of Dyer, but was considered to have played the ball first. I thought it would be very hard a few weeks ago as the teams above us are very, very good and they don't normally drop them sort of points.
