  • Jose Mourinho

The win against Everton means that Chelsea are now seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the Premier League.

Chelsea took time to settle but once Pedro scored their opener - his first goal in nine matches - the floodgates opened and they ran out 3-0 winners.

Goals by Pedro, Gary Cahill and Willian gave Antonio Conte's Chelsea side a comfortable win in the end but the Spurs team they beat 4-2 in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend are showing remarkable resilience in the league.

Arsenal are sixth, 17 points behind Spurs and in grave danger of missing out on the Champions League for the first time in under-pressure manager Arsene Wenger's 20-year reign.

Manchester City stay fourth, one place above Manchester United in fifth, while Boro are six points from safety with three matches to play.

"We have to have great enthusiasm and great patience because I think we are having a great season but to become a fantastic season we must win", Conte said of the title.

"If in the next game against Middlesbrough you don't win, you lose this victory".

"Also [Willian], I know very well that it's not easy for a player who is used to playing every game and to come on during the game".

"We lost players and we lost points, so yes, today was a bad day", Mourinho told the BBC. "It is very hard to mark a player like Eden Hazard".

"We never look at Tottenham, of course we want them to drop points but the most important thing is to look at ourselves", he said, as quoted by Chelsea's official website.

Premier League games and sealing the first half of a double.

And the England global feels Chelsea are nearly there, with just four games to go and a far more straightforward run-in than second-placed Tottenham.

Everton had created chances of their own and hit the post though Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the opening minutes, but Romelu Lukaku cut a frustrated figure for much of the afternoon.

Five minutes from the end, Eden Hazard was replaced by Willian - and the Brazilian soon added a third as he turned home a neat Fabregas cut-back. "In some games you need a bit of class".

I think comparing our offensive play to theirs was the difference. Maybe in the last 30 minutes, yes.
