Napoli vs Cagliari Today's tips Arsenal vs Tottenham Udinese vs Fiorentina Sassuolo vs Salernitana

A win for Chelsea against relegation threatened Middlesbrough would put the Blues on the cusp of clinching their fifth Premier League title.

Antonio Conte's side will walk out at Stamford Bridge knowing that a victory would stretch their lead at the top of the table to seven points over Spurs with just three more matches to play.

Considering those games are against West Bromwich Albion, Watford and already relegated Sunderland, Blues fans will understandably feel their side have one hand firmly on the trophy.

Conte has a couple of injury doubts, however. David Luiz and N'Golo Kante are struggling with knocks they suffered in the win over Everton last weekend.

Both are expected to make a recovery in time to take on Boro while Thibaut Courtois should also be fit despite the ankle injury he sustained earlier in the month once again flaring up.

Conte rarely makes dramatic changes to his team selection and that is unlikely to change for the visit of Steve Agnew's side.

He may, however, start Cesc Fabregas in a more advanced role given Middlesbrough have one of the Premier League's strongest defensive records and that they're likely to come and sit back at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard's creativity could play a be part unlocking what is likely to be a stubborn Boro backline.
