Conte: It's important to work and have the commitment of the players.

Antonio Conte was happy his side beat Swansea on Saturday as they extended the gap at the top of the Premier League table to 11 points.

As the Chelsea boss Conte said before their 3-1 win over Swansea City at Stamford Bridge, that he is eager to prevent complacency from settling into his Blues squad - after being part of teams that have squandered big leads (chances to win the title) towards the end of the season.

However, following the triumph over the Swans, the Italian told Sky Sports: "Eleven points is not really 11 points because the other teams have to play. We need another 29 points to win the league and if we are able to take 29 points for sure we will win the title.

"But 29 points are a lot, and there are 12 games until the end. It's important to go step by step, to continue to work and have the commitment of the players.

"It's another step and a good win because for sure it wasn't easy to play against them. I watched their games against Liverpool and Manchester City and they played very well.

"Today we deserve to win the game, and we created many chances. It's a pity about the goal we conceded but in the second half we started again.

"We deserved a lot to win this game and I'm very happy for my players."

Leicester still have a good team.
