Chelsea 4 Watford 3 - Views from the Bench

Chelsea 4 Watford 3 - Views from the Bench

Last night, Chelsea, having made nine changes to the starting eleven that clinched the title at West Brom, edge past Watford in a seven goal thriller, at Stamford Bridge.

Following what was a highly entertaining game, both managers spoke to the media.

This what Antonio Conte had to say,

'It's a big night because we won the title. I made a decision to make nine changes and give the chance to start a lot of young players. I must be pleased because the answer was very good.

"We conceded three goals but we scored four and created many chances. The most important thing was we won. Now we have target to win 30 games.

'The most important thing is to win the league. Then if we have the possibility to improve these records, we must try. We can reach this target. The players and I want to reach this target.'

And so do we, Arsene Wenger`s 'Untouchables` may have gone a whole season unbeaten but nobody, I repeat, nobody has ever won 30 games in a 38 game top-flight season.

As for Watford, who more than played there part in an entertaining affair, Walter Mazzarri had this to say,

'I am very proud of my team. We had several players out injured.

"We played very well. Of course we were safe with six games left. I'm looking at the players I've got and who needs to be here next season.

'Congratulations to Antonio Conte because he's a great manager. They have great players. They deserve the title.'

Thank you very much Walter for those kind words.
