Conte warns Chelsea flops to shape up ahead of FACup final

Conte warns Chelsea flops to shape up ahead of FACup final

Goals from Ayoze Perez (2) and Dwight Gayle sealed 10th place for Newcastle, but Chelsea finish fifth, outside the top four for just the third time in 16 years having won the Premier League last season.

Chelsea missed out on a place in next season's Champions League after being beaten by Newcastle's outstanding performance on the last day of the Premier League campaign.

Aside from being a rock at the back, Florian Lejeune made a vital assist for Newcastle's third of the night, which effectively sealed all three points for the Magpies.

Chelsea enjoyed plenty of possession but struggled to create many clear-cut chance and Newcastle doubled their lead in the 58th minute when Perez flicked home Jonjo Shelvey's low drive.

Martin Dubravka (8/10): Had absolutely nothing to do in the first half but showed once again as to why he has transformed into a cult figure during his short stint with Newcastle with some great saves, which kept denying Chelsea from getting on the scoresheet.

"I am working with my players this season and it is not right to say something about this".

Antonio Conte of Chelsea during a press conference at Chelsea Training Ground on January 5, 2018 in Cobham, England.




"They deserved it, all over the pitch they were the better team". I'm very happy for last season.

With the game over as a contest, neither side were prepared to put too much effort into the closing stages and the game naturally petered out, with Newcastle ending the season on a high and Chelsea left needing to regroup ahead of next week's FA Cup final with Manchester United.

However, a takeover bid by Amanda Staveley's PCP Capital Partners broke down in January and although Newcastle are still for sale, it is understood the price-tag has increased with another season of the Premier League's riches secured.

Also, might be a radical idea but why didn't Mike Ashley come and see Rafa Benitez face to face and thank him personally for saving his bacon this season AND then persuade him he is genuine, rather than a lame statement.

"Newcastle were brilliant, I must admit", Redknapp said.

'For sure, probably, I will go to Milan for the game for Pirlo on the 21st [of May],' he added.

Anotnio Conte may be on his way out, but there are underlying issues at Chelsea.
