This was billed as a test of Chelsea’s nerve as much as of their quality; they passed it in a way that will seriously examine the strength of Tottenham Hotspur’s belief in the possibility of a collapse by Antonio Conte’s men. Bournemouth were valiant and ensured Chelsea could not simply lounge about in the south-coast sun but the league leaders ultimately subdued their hosts with the imperiousness of champions-elect.
They may need up to 15 points from their seven remaining matches to make it a mathematical certainty but any outcome that does not involve Chelsea claiming the title should probably be filed under fantasy. Not least because Conte keeps warning his players the only way it could become a reality is if they slacken off.
