Guardiola to assess Kompany and Delph before Manchester City face Hull

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte described his side's gritty victory as a "big win" but said 90 points may be needed before they can start celebrating.

"We are almost there but there is a long way to go", Hazard told BT Sport.

"I think we are playing a great season bit to win the title there is a long way to go".

Successive league draws against Stoke, Liverpool and Arsenal, followed by the result at Stamford Bridge, have seen City manager Pep Guardiola's team slip to fourth place in the standings.

"When that happened, we didn't win three or four different games".

However, Dele Alli's 88th-minute equaliser for Tottenham followed by stoppage-time strikes from Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen means Chelsea's lead remains seven points with eight games of the season remaining.

However, the pair are due to meet again in the Premier League this weekend, and Guardiola will no doubt be hoping for a similar result as they bid to cement their top four status. "We didn't deserve to lose the game against Crystal Palace. That is the way we believe we can win in the future".

"The Premier League is gone and in the last eight games, we have to think to qualify for the Champions League".

"He's an important player and also he's growing in his mentality", Conte said.

Chelsea will still be facing Watford, Southampton, Middlesbrough and Sunderland at home, visiting Bournemouth (next game ahead), Everton, Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion away this term.

"It's a good win at a time of the season which is very important".

"I never could imagine in Barcelona, Bayern or when I arrived here I would know absolutely everything".

Even when City crushed Steaua Bucharest in a Champions League play-off in August, Guardiola felt his side were short of the required standard.

It wasn't easy. But when you play against City, it's normal to suffer in some parts of the game.

He added: "We have a lot of attractive things to fight for and to qualify for the Champions League will be a huge success".

"We come here to Stamford Bridge and play the way we have, with huge personality". The Brazilian defender and his teammates are making sure they focus on the rest of the season.

"Everybody makes mistakes - me, the players and the troupe for Mike Riley".
