Chelsea boss Conte on Mourinho date: We must control our emotions

"This is a good answer", Conte told the BBC. Silva set up his team to absorb City pressure and then cause problems on the counter-attack, which they did at times, without causing Bravo too many difficulties for most of the match. But he is available.

"We know if we want to be champions we've got to go to win every game".

"The team deserve full credit because the energy and the way they played was fantastic".

Conte also talked about Dutch defender Nathan Ake, who played for Bournemouth in the first half of the season before being recalled by Chelsea after impressing with the Cherries.

"To have a great season, to write history, you must win", said Conte.

"The second goal was the key but they deserved to win the game", Silva conceded.

"It's important for these players to play at the highest level and for many of these players at the moment it's the EDS".

A Chelsea victory would see them pull even further ahead of third-place Liverpool, and would make Tottenham's race for the title seem even more far fetched. But anything can happen.

"This year I hope will be different, that we win titles".

Antonio Conte: "If we think that tomorrow is easy we are making a great mistake". It's a pity, but I think today it wasn't our day.

Former Valencia playmaker Silva wore the captain's armband on his 300th City appearance, and Sterling reiterated just how important he is to City's play.

"I'm happy to have Nathan with us". There was little in the way of good fortune needed against Watford once Dele Alli had opened the scoring and, after Eric Dier's effort and two goals from Son Heung-min had made it 4-0, the Tottenham manager was able to give Harry Kane a workout on his return from injury. But I'm pleased with his commitment and his attitude. The players showed really good character to hang in there at 2-1.
