Antonio Conte Doesn't Think Newcastle Defeat Was His Last Chelsea League Match

Ayoze Perez struck twice to end Chelsea's faint hopes of Champions League qualification as Newcastle secured a top-10 finish on its return to the Premier League on Sunday.

But the Italian has warned his players that they can not afford to deliver a repeat performance of their defeat to Newcastle.

Chelsea had slim hopes to reach the Champions League next year but their hopes did not last long as Newcastle easily took the best of a pale Chelsea team defeated 3-0.

Having failed to win their last game of the season, with Liverpool demolishing Brighton & Hove Albion, Conte's men will now play in the Europa League next term. Now we have to play the last game in the FA Cup and then, as you know very well because I am repeating always the same thing, I am committed to this club.

We have five days to change our approach and desire and will to fight.

"It looked to me like everyone had one eye on the cup final which is very unsafe and we were lucky the game was kind of irrelevant". The Italian's has been the subject of constant speculation that his second season at Stamford Bridge could well be his last after a disappointing season which sees the Blues finishing fifth place and missing out on a Champions League spot in the process. By turn up, I mean they attempted their first shot after 51 minutes.

For the shows that don't have a fate decided on yet (there's really not many), we'll update as soon as there is a decision made. The fan reaction apparently played a part in " Brooklyn Nine-Nine's" second chance at life.

"You need to sign players to be sure you have a good squad with competition". "What I would like is to be sure that the team is able to compete to finish above tenth".

"We wanted to end the season in the best possible way, but we can do better than this", he said.

Chelsea supremo Roman Abramovich is a big fan of the revolving-door system when it comes to managers for his Chelsea side - and he is now apparently readying one of his most audacious swoops yet. "I will go to Milan for the (testimonial) game for Andrea Pirlo on the 21st", said the former Juventus coach.

But there are more immediate reflections to be made by Chelsea's strategists on what went wrong this season, the abrupt decline from the team brilliantly guided to the 2017 Premier League title.

The Blues are said to be fretting over Hazard's future at the club following a turbulent campaign and as a result they have taken the decision to make another managerial change, with the Conte's successor needing to appeal to the Belgium international's attacking flair - as per the Telegraph.
