Bournemouth refused to give up and they very almost pulled a goal back when Afobe volleyed Charlie Daniels' cross against the post.
"But that's normal. I'm very happy to face this type of situation, to play with only four points in front of our opponent".
"I like the pressure, I live with pressure".
'Nothing has been won and Spurs are trying their best to put as much pressure on as possible with their impressive current run, ' noted Nevin in his column for Chelsea's official website. "We accept it", he added. Last season Chelsea played for 10th place. "When we conceded the goal we lost a bit of confidence but we managed the game and deserved to win".
Chelsea took home all three points from an end-to-end encounter in the south coast, but the scoreline does not do justice to the Cherries' efforts and spirit. The right wing-back missed Saturday's loss to Crystal Palace and Wednesday's win over Manchester City.
Chelsea star, Victor Moses, on Saturday returned to action after missing two Premier League games due to an injury. "When we went 2-0 down it was a mountain to climb from there".
"For sure Tottenham have a great desire to win the title and we must have the same desire".
"For us, it's always important to control our emotion because we are playing and fighting to win the title", Conte told his club's official website. "We don't have this experience", Klopp said.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored both first-leg goals for Madrid in Munich, is set to start on Tuesday along with Karim Benzema. Their two defeats during that time came against Barcelona in April 2011 (0-2) and Schalke in March 2015 (3-4).
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has urged his team to keep check on their emotions and focus on getting the job done against Manchester United on Easter Sunday.
"I don't like to tempt fate but I think it's almost done", Lampard told Sky Sports 1's Goals on Sunday programme.
"When we see Tottenham, everything is not done".
The Blues broke the deadlock after 16 minutes as Diego Costa's wayward left-footed volley was deflected into the net by Bournemouth's Adam Smith.
Chelsea now need 15 points from seven matches to seal the league crown, but Conte has warned his Blues that Tottenham will push the race to the wire.
"In this moment Diego is not scoring but he's totally involved in the team and our football".
Thibaut Courtois had to make an important save in the first minute after David Luiz inadvertently turned a Ryan Fraser cross towards his own goal and Hazard headed Cesar Azpilicueta's cross wide in a lively opening at a sun-drenched Vitality Stadium.
