Can winning the FA Cup in the last game be taken into the start of next season?

Following the 1-0 win over United in the FA Cup final, The former Juve boss said: "In a hard season like this I showed I'm a serial victor". What I can say is that the players do not have any impact on that situation. Let's hope the Blues have a good summer and get ready to go again next season.

EDEN HAZARD has hinted a summer departure from Chelsea is unlikely as the Belgium playmaker targeted another Premier League title. Conte blames his failures this season largely on Chelsea's transfer policy.

Having said that, if Conte does leave Stamford Bridge in the next few weeks, then he is going as a successful manager with a league title and FA Cup from his two seasons in charge.

Hazard was still the one who did something special to beat Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday and now he has a great opportunity to make a real impact in Russian Federation this summer too. A season in which it's imperative they compete at the very top?

Concise News gathered that the former Italian coach who on Saturday won the FA Cup, his second trophy for the Stamford Bridge outfit, will be paid £9 million for the final year of his contract.

In spite of the Blues' glorious history against the Catalan club, the current Chelsea side were no match for the cold, calculated, and ruthless Barcelona side.

Mourinho claimed United were the better team against Chelsea at Wembley. You have not seen a big Chelsea performance but we defended well.

The Belgian feels fifth-placed Chelsea need significant improvement to close the gap on champions Manchester City, who finished 30 points ahead of the 2016/17 winners.

Pep Guardiola's side will seek to become the first team to win back-to-back championships since Man United ten years ago, with Chelsea seeking to stop them.

Toure, 35, has been an icon in the Premier League over the past five years and after a season which saw him used sparingly by Pep Guardiola, he will be keen to play more regularly in the twilight of his career.
