Conte hails Chelsea fans after victory at Everton

"In the second half Pedro scored a great goal and from that point we were able to control the game better".

Chelsea moved seven points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, which was hosting Arsenal later.

"I think we did well", he said.

"Today's result is disappointing but at least we have a point". Chelsea opened the scoring on 69 minutes with a thunderous Pedro shot from the edge of the area from Nemanja Matic's short pass, although Phil Jagielka will feel he should have blocked the former Barcelona forward's turn ahead of the strike.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is keeping his fingers crossed David Luiz's injury picked up on Sunday is not too serious. "Now it is important to prepare the final rush".

"We have to stay together and have great enthusiasm and passion".

"We never look at Tottenham, of course we want them to drop points but the most important thing is to look at ourselves", he said, as quoted by Chelsea's official website.

Meanwhile, the defeat for Everton means they remain seventh in their first home loss this calendar year. After that it makes it more hard to create really open chances and if they get a little bit more space they are a team who will kill the game. "I don't know how close we are to the title".

Frank Lampard believes the Chelsea dressing room will be on fire after Sunday's 3-0 win at Everton.

While Tottenham and Chelsea fight it out at the top, it continues to be a case of "after you" for the rest of the Champions League chasers.

"Mathematically it has to happen once", Wenger told Sky Sports.

A sublime free-kick by Icelandic worldwide Gylfi Sigurdsson gained Swansea a deserved point against United at Old Trafford and dented Jose Mourinho's hopes of breaking into the top four.
