Chelsea vs Middlesbrough

After Tottenham’s loss against West Ham, Chelsea is very, very close to winning the Premier League again. On Monday night Antonio Conte’s boys are playing against Middlesbrough at home and a win would move them incredibly close to the title.Right now Chelsea has a four point advantage in front of Tottenham, but a win against Boro would increase their advantage to seven points, just three rounds before the end of the season. This means that they’d need just one more win to clinch the title.Middlesbrough on the other hand is almost surely going back to the Championship as they need three points at the Stamford Bridge if they want to keep their chances of survival alive. They are currently 19th in the league standings, being on 7 points behind 17th Swansea with just three matches to go.Chelsea’s manager Antonio Conte has some questions regarding his starting line-up. Ngolo Kante, Thibaut Courtois, and David Luiz are all doubtful for the game. They will have a late fitness test to determine if they will be able to play.Middlesbrough could be without the services of Gaston Ramirez, Daniel Ayala, and Victor Valdes, while Grant Leadbitter is ready to come back after a successful recovery.It’s needless to say that Chelsea is the heavy favorite to win this game. The Blues are ready to finish what they started and win the Premier League once again. Antonio Conte’s team was the most consistent of all this season and they deserve to win the gold medals. The Italian manager will also be one of the few managers who managed to win the Premier League in their first season in English football.As for Boro, most probably they will go back to the Championship and try again to come back next year.
