Lack of goals killing Chelsea's chances - Conte

Champions Champions
Shannon Reynolds | 01 May, 2018, 13:00

"Our top scorer has scored only 12 goals", Conte said in his postmatch news conference. 'The stats speak very well'.

It was a damaging defeat for Swansea and Carlos Carvalhal's team are now only one point above the relegation zone with three games left.West Brom would have been relegated to the Championship if they had failed to take maximum points at St James' Park, but Matt Phillips bagged the first-half victor to keep them in with a shout for a few more hours at least.

"Against West Ham, it happened the same".

While Chelsea could have been more than a goal clear at the break, Swansea responded well in the second half and went close through Andre Ayew, Kyle Naughton, Tom Carroll and Wayne Routledge in the final quarter.

"It could have happened the same today".

"The only way that we have to put a bit of pressure on the top four is to win." he said.

Chelsea's win kept alive their hopes of snatching a Champions League place.

Will Mayfield change minds of Browns fans?
Mayfield turned back the clock and posted a photo on Twitter that re-created a famous Brett Favre draft-day image from 1991. But when Collins went down with an injury previous year , the Browns did not have the depth to remain competitive.

Having looked out of the top-four picture, the dethroned champions are now just two points behind Tottenham, who play on Monday night, and six behind Liverpool, who have played a game more and head to Stamford Bridge next Sunday.

"The only way to put pressure on Tottenham was to get three points".

"It is not simple to win a game in this league, but for sure our situation is not in our hands".

If Fabregas had felt that his former manager would want him to work hard in the middle of the park, Conte would demand even more, which made Cesc's desire to be a success at Chelsea even more.

"Of course, we were the team that tried to win, had more chances and tried to win in the last 20 to 25 minutes but that's normal, they had a positive game but we were stronger in the last 20 minutes".

There was urgency and desperation enough in Swansea's game, but little quality in front of goal and the biggest mark left by top scorer Jordan Ayew was on the neck of Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill when he arrived with a late elbow - an incident which referee Jon Moss somehow missed. Our expectation was to play a tough game against a good team looking to avoid relegation. "I saw everything I wanted to see except fluency and fun and joy", Klopp said. "The defender tries to get the ball but he doesn't see Dyer".
