West Brom will not 'roll over' for Chelsea, says Brunt

Posted May 14, 2017

'I have a contract for two years but i nthis moment - for me and the players - the most important this is to stay in the momeny.

Even if they slip up against the Baggies, Chelsea will still be overwhelming favourites given they need just three points from their final three league games this season to take the title.

There are no other injury or availability concerns, and while Chelsea do have another match coming up right quick after this one on Monday, we are unlikely to be too concerned about that at the moment. West Brom, meanwhile, have tailed off since securing Premier League safety, winning just one of their last nine, but they remain a highly creditable eighth in the standings. Now we have been very good to find the right way and have a fantastic season.

"We have to gain more points to finish strongly, then everything moving forward will be aimed at getting back into the Premier League as soon as possible".

Weekend fixtures (UK time): Friday, Everton v Watford, West Brom v Chelsea; Saturday, Manchester City v Leicester, Bournemouth v Burnley, Middlesbrough v Southampton, Sunderland v Swansea, Stoke v Arsenal; Sunday, Crystal Palace v Hull City, West Ham v Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United.

In his 106th match for Chelsea, he scored for the first time at Stamford bridge.

Antonio Conte is hoping he will end tomorrow night being thrown in a bath by his Chelsea players after winning the title. "They are a strong physical team, good coach and the atmosphere there can be very hot".

Taylor, who according to Leeds boss Garry Monk refused to face Wigan Athletic in their final Championship game, is out of contract at Elland Road, but will command compensation.

"First of all I like to underline that this season, it wasn't easy at the start because we faced a lot of problems", he told a news conference.

Asked what he had said to his players following the Middlesbrough win, Conte replied: "The message was now we need to take another step".

"The pressure is still on because we have to win one game out of the three, but with the way we're playing there's no reason why we shouldn't be confident".

"But then we bounced back as a team very hard and we played very well. But we want to try to get the three points".
