Antonio Conte extended his praise for royal patience to his Chelsea guys, following three second-half goals, taking them another step towards the Premier League title with an enormous win over Everton.
Precise and successful strikes from Gary Cahill, Pedro Rodriguez as well as Willian gave the Premier League leaders an opportunity to hand Everton only their second home league loss of the season and step up the pressure on second-placed Tottenham before Sunday’s North London bout with Arsenal.
Chelsea made a vigorous effort to cope with Everton’s resistance during a disjointed opening 45 minutes, though on 66 minutes Pedro’s 25-yard screamer managed to set the visitors on course for a victory that means they require just 9 points from their four remaining bouts to be officially confirmed as champions.
Conte added that the performance pleased him a lot, especially considering that they dealt with a strong counterpart. He praised his guys for unbelievable patience demonstrated in the play.
