Antonio Conte has warned his Chelsea side against complacency as they look to wrap up the Premier League title with victory at West Brom on Friday night.
The Blues can clinch the Premier League title with victory at The Hawthorns on Friday night as they look to win their first trophy under new boss Conte.
Chelsea have been the Premier League’s top performing team this season and have earned plenty of praise for their displays under Conte.
The west London side were 3-0 winners over Middlesbrough on Monday night as they moved to within a victory of the title.
Conte will be hoping to be celebrating with his players come the final whistle on Friday night.
However, the Chelsea boss has warned his side against any complacency.
Speaking at his pre-match news conference at Stamford Bridge on Thursday afternoon, Conte said: “We are so close to reaching a fantastic target, but we mustn’t forget we have to take three points in these three games.
“Tomorrow we have the first chance. Also, we must know to play against West Brom is not easy. They are a really strong, physical team, with a good coach. For sure the atmosphere will be very hot.
“It’s important at this moment to enjoy. We have worked a lot; we have worked very hard. I like to repeat: this is a good season; we want it to become a great season. There is only one way: to take three points and win the title.
“My players are totally focused on the moment. It’s normal to live this moment in the right way, with the right pressure.
“I am seeing my players very focused and concentrated and it’s great for me when I see this type of behaviour and this attitude during training.”
Chelsea are chasing a domestic double this season and are set to take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at the end of the month.
