What did the coaches say about the game ?
Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka :
"It is frustrating. We knew before the game we were playing against a top-of-the-table team.
"But after our last performances against Arsenal and Manchester City we were confident and we showed again we can compete against those teams.
"One mistake punished us. But if we keep playing like we have done in the past few games. we will win more games. The team is improving."
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte:
"I knew this game would be difficult because this team is well organised and they are in good form.
"But we deserved to win because we scored the goal and created many chances for a second goal.
"The first five minutes wasn't good for us. Middlesbrough started very well and we started badly but during the game our possession got better and we started to move the ball quicker. We didn't concede and stopped any opportunity for them to score."
