Fabregas keeps Chelsea in hunt for Champions League places

Ayew Rallies Mates For Final Onslaught As Battle For Survival Reaches Climax Andre Ayew Insists Swansea City Have What It Takes To Maintain Premier League Status

Fabregas isn't keen to over-celebrate after the victory at Swansea as he believes his side remain in an uncomfortable position in the league table, two points behind Tottenham, who face Watford on Monday.

Chelsea also have an FA Cup final date with Manchester United to look forward to next month as they target a positive end to the season following their tame Premier League title defence.

Chelsea are now the 5/4 favourites with 888sport to win the game and blow the top four race wide open while you can get odds of 2/1 on Liverpool taking home the three points and wrapping-up their Champions League place.

"We got three points and it was very important for us if we wanted to keep hopes alive and achieve Champions League football", Conte said after his 50th victory in the Premier League.

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

Fabregas scored the only goal of the game after just four minutes when Eden Hazard capitalised on a mistake from Andy King and fed the ball to the Spaniard.

"We had to make changes, that is always a bit of a rhythm breaker, in the final third everything is instinct between the regulars, and we missed a bit of that", said Klopp, who added Liverpool had not sustained any further injuries.

Alvaro Morata has scored 11 league goals this season but was benched against Swansea

The advantage is with Tottenham because it's not up to us.
"I think even today we could be more clinical to kill the game, but instead we kept the game in balance".

First of all, we have to try to get three points at Swansea and it won't be easy because we are going to play against a team that is fighting to avoid relegation. The draw did little to help Stoke's survival bid as it remains in the relegation zone surrounded by teams with games in hand.

Gary Cahill has warned Tottenham that Chelsea FC are out to crank up the pressure on them in the race for Champions League qualification.

Antonio Conte's men will need to win their remaining three games and hope their rivals stumble on the way to secure a Champions League ticket for next season.

Huddersfield isn't out of danger yet, sitting three points above Southampton after being beaten 2-0 by Everton, whose goals came from Cenk Tosun and Idrissa Gueye.

With just minutes left to play, the Swansea belief looked strong, and the home side continued to threaten, but Chelsea would not budge.
