Delph eager to remain at Man City


"I think this is the best way for us", Conte said.

"Does he have the attributes to succeed in the Premier League?".

Meanwhile, Silva wants to see his side play as well away from home as they do at the KCOM Stadium.

Premier League clubs had splashed out 130 million pounds on agents's fees in the corresponding year earlier period.

"I know this manager when he was in Greece [with Olympiacos] and playing Champions League football and I was in Bayern Munich", he said.

"Both of them played good". I think the tactics are less naïve. We have to keep winning and hopefully they get a bit stressed. I tried to adapt as much as possible.

"To win the league would help him if he wants to appoint Pirlo. He's so strong. He just needs that goal and then he's on fire".

Chelsea responded by securing a massive three points against Manchester City on Wednesday night while Spurs nearly dropped points at Swansea, if it wasn't for a last minute glut of goals.

But even when they scored six against Steaua Bucharest in August's Champions League qualifier, he feared goals would be a problem - and Sergio Aguero has struck 27.

Chelsea captain John Terry was again an unused substitute. "For this reason to win the title we need 18 points.". "That is the way we believe we can win in the future".

"Are we looking up or down the table now?"

"The games are starting to be less, but I think this league will still be really tough until the end".

"We've been hard to break down in the last few games".

"Still we have a lot of handsome things to fight for - to qualify for the Champions League is so important and would be a huge success, and we have the semi-finals of the FA Cup".

Liverpool lost steam in the race for a top four finish after being held to a 2-2 home draw by bogey team Bournemouth, with Josh King grabbing a late equaliser for the Cherries after goals by Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi had cancelled out Benik Afobe's opener. We saw against Barcelona, we saw in many games when he played. We have to be honest with ourselves. "Yet in this season, we are at the same level".

"We've got some massive quality".

"The way we played, especially in the big games, we were good but we were not good enough".

Although he isn't a spectacular player, Delph is hugely effective at retaining possession, as demonstrated by the fact that he has been successful with 92% of his attempted passes in the Premier League this season.
