Chelsea won 2-1 at Stoke City to go 13 points clear at the top of the table and Antonio Conte has lauded the Blues will to win.
The blues conceded a penalty as Stoke drew level in the first half, but a late strike from Cahill in the 87th minute sparked wild celebrations from the Chelsea bench and faithfuls.
Jonathan Walters penalty cancelled out Willian’s earlier free kick, but the blues emerged winners and Conte is happy about this.
“For sure it was an important win,” Conte said.
“It’s not easy at this point of the season to come here, to play in Stoke against a strong team also with good qualities and tactical organisation.
“I think we showed a great will to win from the start until the end. I’m very pleased because my players showed me a great will to win but also they were prepared to fight to win this game. It wasn’t easy.
“We have played two games away and to win both games is very important in this part of the season. Now there are 10 games to go, I’d like to think that now we need to take 21 points to be sure to win the league but for sure it’s an important win.”
