'Amazing' Hazard can handle himself in the Premier League, says Conte

Leicester are the team to avoid- Buffon

Leicester are the team to avoid- Buffon

With a howling wind, hostile crowd and tenacious players to conquer, Stoke has become the litmus test for showing character in adversity, so Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was understandably delighted with his side's hard-fought 2-1 win in the Potteries on Saturday. Willian opened the scoring for Chelsea in the 13 minute through a beautifully executed free kick.

Mark Hughes expects his Stoke side to push Chelsea all the way despite their track record of just two wins in their past 17 Premier League matches against the Blues. Walters himself stepped up and fired the ball past the keeper to make it 1-all.

Asked whether it was Chelsea's title to lose, he added: "To have a 10 points gap, 13 at the moment, but I like to think our opponents will win tomorrow".

A team that has taken points off other top teams this year but will find it extremely hard to hold Conte's men to a point.

"We're disappointed, this is a game we'd highlighted as one we thought we could get something out of", Grant told Stoke's official YouTube channel.

Manager of Chelsea Antonio Conte has provided update on the injury situation of Victor Moses who is a doubt for Nigeria upcoming friendly games against Senegal and Burkina Faso.

Before this weekend's round of matches, they were sixth in the table, six points behind fourth-placed Liverpool. He loves the club, he's born and bred in Middlesbrough . "Stewy will be a big part of things".

"He is a type of player who is very hard to stop and for this reason you try to stop him with a good or bad way", Conte said.

Andre Ayew got West Ham back into the game with a goal in the 63 minute, but it proved to be too late.

"I'm not anxious about this because Eden is very strong physically and he's showed me that he is able to play in this league".

"We played a good game, kept calm and had the opportunity to score the second goal".

Swansea City dropped to fourth-bottom after an Alfie Mawson own goal and a Benik Afobe strike earned Bournemouth a 2-0 win.

Despite Andre Ayew reducing the arrears, the visitors held on to pull six points clear of the bottom three.
