Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has told talkSPORT lifting the Premier League title this season would be even sweeter for the club on the back of last year's disastrous campaign. "We had to solve a lot of problems", Conte said at a news conference. "We're in a great position now and if we were to throw it away we'd be devastated".

Only an incredible collapse could prevent Conte bagging the title in his first season and adding it to his three Serie A crowns achieved in successive seasons with Juventus.
