  • Antonio Conte reiterates his commitment to Chelsea: 'I have a contract at the club'

However, what I have noticed is the growth in confidence in his overall game.

Antonio Conte admits Chelsea "must change".

The Blues signed off with a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United, leaving them in fifth place in the table, but the defender has called on his colleagues to bounce back by defeating Manchester United in the FA Cup final.

"On many occasions throughout the season, they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory. If we think we can play a game like this in the final of the FA Cup then we don't have a chance", Conte told reporters as he looked ahead to Saturday's Wembley showdown.

'We have six days to change our approach and desire and will to fight. For this season for sure, now we have to play the last game in the FA Cup and as you know very well I am repeating always the same thing. No, I don't think it will be.

"We deserved to lose because our start wasn't good and we suffered by losing every ball", Conte told the BBC.

"Kante has won two Premier League titles with two different clubs and I dare say if he moved to Manchester United or Liverpool, the title would move there too".

Champion Manchester City, which has broken the Premier League record for wins, points and goals this season, set another landmark by becoming the first side in English top flight history to reach 100 points as Gabriel Jesus struck a dramatic late victor to beat Southampton 1-0.

"I would like to thank Rafa Benitez for his magnificent achievement this season", said Ashley. "You can ask the club which is the damage of being out of the Champions League".

The Spaniard, who has a year left on his contract, has been critical of Newcastle's poor transfer dealings throughout the season. How damaging is it not to be in the Champions League?
