Antonio Conte in new disagreement with Chelsea's board over staff change

Premier League leaders, Chelsea, have received a major boost ahead of their trip to Bournemouth after manager, Antonio Conte confirmed that Victor Moses is available again for the clash.

Antonio Conte's men quickly doubled their advantage as N'Golo Kante released Eden Hazard with a lovely long ball and the Belgian worldwide rounded Artur Boruc before slotting home for 2-0 in the 20th minute.

Chelsea's Diego Costa, left attempts to head the ball under pressure from Bournemouth's Adam Smith during their English Premier League soccer match between Bournemouth and Chelsea at Dean Court stadium in Bournemouth, England, Saturday, April 8, 2017. When Fraser, a menace all afternoon with his darting runs, rasped a drive past the post just after half-time, home fans smelled an equalizer, while the visiting support, previously singing derogatory songs about Tottenham, became a little nervous.

That brought the Chelsea fans back to full voice. "It was not easy to get back on track, especially after an unexpected and undeserved defeat to Crystal Palace, but we've done it and I'm delighted".

17' - GOAL! Bournemouth 0-1 Chelsea (Smith o/g). Hazard's goal-scoring spree has been timely.

"There were times past year when he was so confident in his ability he would beat players twice".

NAN also reports that Moses has made 27 appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring three goals.

The logic of Matic's inclusion probably grew from Chelsea's wobbly defensive record.

- Josh King has netted eight goals versus teams now in the Premier League top 10, the most of any player playing in a team outside the top half. A previously impervious defensive block is now conceding goals far too freely for Conte to feel comfortable.

Wednesday's 2-1 victory over Manchester City extended Costa's current barren streak to four matches - during which time he has also received three yellow cards - but Conte is adamant that his striker is playing a key role in Chelsea's march towards the Premier League title.

Eddie Howe claims he accepted Chelsea's decision to recall influential loan man Nathan Ake from Bournemouth in January.

In the 42nd minute, Josh King pulled a goal back, his 10th in 11 games, via a deflection for the plucky hosts, who had chances to equalise after the break until Marcos Alonso curled home a ideal 68th minute freekick to seal the Blues' win.

Not that they can't do the physical stuff. I am in a team that is winning and that motivates me even more.

Mauricio Pochettino's team took control of the contest in 11 first-half minutes, when Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Son Heung-min scored.

City now have a seven-point cushion in the fourth and final Champions League qualifying spot, although fifth-place Arsenal and sixth-place Manchester United each have two games in hand.
