Eden Hazard declared “we are nearly there” as Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte targeted six wins in the final eight games to clinch the Premier League title.
Hazard scored twice in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Manchester City as Chelsea responded to the defeat to Crystal Palace to maintain a seven-point lead over second-placed Tottenham.
“It is a big win,” the Belgian playmaker told BT Sport.
“I don’t know if the way we played was beautiful but the most important thing is to win games.
“I think the way we played we can do better but after a defeat it’s good to come back here and win three points.
“We are nearly there but there is a long way to go. We have eight games to play. We want to finish top. That’s the target. We have some difficult games but we are ready for everything.”
