Chelsea have seven finals left starting with Man United, says Marcos Alonso

Chelsea are next in action when they travel to Old Trafford to play Manchester United on Easter Sunday.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe spoke after the game, and while he was pleased with his team's efforts, he confessed that Chelsea were simply too much for them.

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso admits that only a win was acceptable when the Blues travelled to Bournemouth on Saturday.

"I don't see Tottenham are the type of team that can keep winning right until the end so, for me, it's Chelsea's".

Marcos Alonso says the last seven matches left for Chelsea to play are finals, as they look to fend off Tottenham to win the title.

"Can Chelsea lose enough games and can Tottenham win all their games?" Manchester United is going to be a tough game for us but it doesn't matter who scores, hopefully we will get the three points.

As he did in the spring of 2015, Hazard is lighting up Chelsea's run-in with a series of decisive goals and virtuoso performances, bolstering the case for him to regain the PFA Player of the Year award he surrendered to Riyad Mahrez last season. "We've been there nearly all season, we're showing we want to be there, we're playing very well and fighting for it and that's what we need keep doing".

"It's important now in every game to try and take three points, including at Old Trafford", Conte said.

"He has nearly scored 20 [current tally is 18] goals and that is a significant contribution".

'We know if we want to be champions we've got to go to win every game.

"The group is fantastic", he added.

"But when we started the season, nobody thought that Chelsea could fight for the title and instead we have found the right motivation together".

Conte said: 'For us it's very important always to control our emotion, because we are playing and fighting to win the title.
