The Spain international scored his tenth league goal of the season to hand his side a one- nil win over Middlesbrough that puts them a point clear of Liverpool and Manchester City at the summit.

Conte was delighted with the efforts of Costa, Eden Hazard and Pedro, as the players caused problems for the Middlesbrough defence while doing their fair share of defensive work in the second half.

Conte was relieved to come away with maximum points ahead of a difficult two weeks for Chelsea, who host Tottenham next Saturday before a trip to Manchester City.
