Antonio Conte: Chelsea can still qualify for Uefa Champions League

Hosts Swansea City didn't quit, but a Cesc Fabregas first half goal was enough to keep the relegation waters muddled with Chelsea's 1-0 win at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

He told BBC Sport: "The only way we can put a bit of pressure on the top four is to win. Today has been very positive to put that pressure on Tottenham".

"In football, anything can happen, and so if it happens, we must be there to take advantage".

The Spaniard scored the only goal of the game with a splendid finish after Eden Hazard caught the eye with his artistry in the build-up to the same.

"But you must be very good to kill the game and you have to take the chances otherwise you risk your opponent trying to push".

Asked about Ayew's challenge, Carvalhal said: "I don't want to (distract) too much from what we did with referee situations".

Swansea, meanwhile, are just one point ahead of 18th-placed Southampton following Mark Hughes' side's 2-1 win over Bournemouth earlier in the day.

Democrat lawsuit accuses Trump and his team of 'gleefully welcoming Russia's help'
The hacking of the DNC has always been a sore spot for Democrats across the board since Clinton's stunning loss in November 2016. Following his upset election win over Hillary Clinton in 2016, many wondered how Donald Trump was able to pull off the victory.

He's also Chelsea's leading scorer on the season, but with only 12 goals in Premier League play. After Tottenham plays Watford on Monday, the north London club and Chelsea will have three games remaining.

The Blues were swiftly off their blocks when Cesc Fabregas pounced on an opportunity in the 3rd minute to register his 50th career goal since first arriving in England back in 2003.

Chelsea FC will take on Manchester United in the FA Cup final next month as they look to try and end the season with a trophy.

Dusan Tadic breathed new life into Southampton's bid to beat the drop as his double sealed a crucial 2-1 success in the south-coast derby against Bournemouth at St. Mary's.

With an nearly flawless finish to their league campaign needed to overtake either Tottenham or Liverpool, Chelsea will need the former Footballer of the Year to remain as dependable and decisive as he was here. A tactical shift coupled with some inspired substitutions from Carvalhal helped Swansea to attack with urgency and more conviction in the final 20 minutes of the game.

The Blues are grinding out wins, as they did against a spirited but toothless Swansea, but they are reliant on others to slip up, regardless of whatever they achieve themselves in their three remaining league matches. I thought it would be very hard a few weeks ago as the teams above us are very, very good and they don't normally drop them sort of points.

Chelsea looked shaky and survived a penalty appeal when Gary Cahill stepped on the foot of Dyer, but was considered to have played the ball first.
