Chelsea 1 Southampton 0 - Conte`s Views

What should have been an easy three points, with Chelsea dominating possession but spurning numerous chances to kill the game off, the home support had to survive a nervous final ten minutes.

On the touchline, as the heavens opened, Antonio Conte was gesticulating wildly trying to ensure Chelsea held on to the three valuable points.

After the game, speaking to Sky Sports, Antonio had this to say about the game,

'When you do not score the second goal, you have to suffer. You are afraid at every corner and free-kick and the opponent has the chance to draw. We dominated the game, shooting 24 times, hitting the post and we needed to score the second goal to be relaxed.

'We had a lot of chances but the goalkeeper Fraser Forster was good. We have to be happy with the performance and the clean sheet.

'If you shoot only twice and score two goals, you must be worried. We had lots of shots but we must be more accurate in our finishing.

'In the last 10 games, we have won eight, drawn one and lost one. This is our run, you have to consider last 10 games, not just two. It shows we are doing our job.'

Next stop on the Premier League is a trip to Everton, for a Saturday lunch-time kick-off, whilst on Wednesday evening we entertain Bournemouth in a League Cup quarter-final tie, as the games continue to come thick and fast.
