FA Cup final will not be my Chelsea farewell, says Conte

The former Nigeria defender had cited a desire to spend more time with his young family, although, as it transpired, he would take up a similar position at Monaco a little over three weeks later.

"At the moment, it is just to be sure we know how close we are and carry on". Unfortunately, it led to two more Newcastle goals. Trouble was, it came from Newcastle, who had tested Thibaut Courtois well before Dwight Gayle efficiently headed the opening goal when Courtois, under pressure from Jacob Murphy, could only flap a high ball towards the diminutive striker. There, they learned that Liverpool were already leading 2-0 at home to Brighton & Hove Albion, ending any suspense about the identity of the top four.

Mour silverware the aim for the "Special One" Mourinho last won the FA Cup in 2007 when his Chelsea side beat current club Manchester United.

"They have not made a challenge, they have not made a tackle and they have not made any imprint on this game whatsoever, but Newcastle have been brilliant".

"It is not enough just to finish tenth with four or five teams around you", said Benitez.

"Newcastle were brilliant, they deserved it, all over park they were the better team - they closed and they pressed them". By turn up, I mean they attempted their first shot after 51 minutes.

Jamaal Lascelles is one of the best defenders in the Premier League, and there is no surprise that Everton and Chelsea have been linked with the Newcastle United star. Marcos Alonso and Morata score.

Ashley added that Benitez would get "every penny generated by the club" to improve his squad. The atmosphere was not quite as emotionally charged as it was two years ago, when Newcastle ran out 5-1 winners against Tottenham on the final day after relegation to the Championship.

However, Benitez will not be penning a new deal until he has received some clarification about his transfer budget for the summer, and the extent to which he will be allowed to spend the money as he sees fit. But his happiness is not the issue, his belief that he can achieve all he wants to achieve, with as much control as he needs, is what is in question.

"For the next game, for sure we must change", Conte said.

Although they have a chance to win the FA Cup next weekend, Antonio Conte wasn't able to secure Champions League football for next season as they finished fifth in the Premier League, while they crashed out of Europe's premier competition at the last-16 stage this time round.
