Conte urged his players to turn a good season into a great season by completing a Premier League title success ahead of the May 27 FA Cup final with Arsenal and a possible double.
Asked about the impact of the FA Cup loss on the league, where Chelsea lead Spurs by four points, Dier told Sky Sports: "It's kind of irrelevant".
Things began well enough with a win against title rivals Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final, but Antonio Conte's team can not afford to drop points at home to Southampton tonight or away to Everton on Sunday.
Under Conte, Hazard has a lot more freedom to express himself creatively, but the allure of playing alongside some of European football's biggest names could be an attraction for Hazard. A top achievement for the coach, the players and the club.
"To win in England these days is not easy".
"Of course we'll do everything we can to win the league for him - we wanted to win today for him and for ourselves as well". It's great to know that we have a final to play a week after the championship finishes. It will remain a good season.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, former Liverpool and Aston Villa star Collymore claimed Spurs would earn their 22nd league win of the season 3-1.
"This week is crucial for us because in this week Tottenham have the advantage", Conte said.
Manchester City spent more than any other English side at over £170 million, Manchester United come in second by spending just under £150 million, with Chelsea in third having spent £123 million.
"Chelsea are used to winning trophies, it's a winning team, and maybe they have more experience than us". You've seen the past. In the way we play, we try to push, try to get everything in offside in the way we play.
Chelsea last summer signed N'Golo Kante for £32m from Leicester, last season's champions.
The France worldwide was named PFA Player of the Year on Sunday and his manager hailed the 26-year-old as a quietly influential figure.
"He's a silent leader and a leader on the pitch by example", Conte added. "N'Golo is young so he can improve in this aspect".
Lloris only faced five shots but was beaten by four of them as Chelsea booked a final place against Arsenal with manager Mauricio Pochettino feeling that Spurs were the better team after the match but that Chelsea were just more clinical.
"I think that in the period with Carlo, Chelsea had a really strong squad".
"He's not the type of player who likes to speak (out)".
