Perez double condemns woeful Chelsea to Europa League

Grant SmithMay 14, 2018

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has said the departure of the team's former Technical Director Mike Emenalo made the season hard for the Blues.

They also were level at 4 following Jamie Vardy's second of the night when Kane completed his brace. "We are still talking, so we will see".

Alvaro Morata, Willian, Marcos Alonso and Cesc Fabregas all looked on as the Magpies picked off the visitors, with the game over before any of them were summoned.

It took until the 51st minute for Chelsea to test Martin Dubravka - Olivier Giroud attempting a spectacular trademark acrobatic effort but the Newcastle goalkeeper was equal to it.

"On many occasions throughout the season, they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory". Rafa Benitez's side will be hoping for a positive result in order to remain in the top half of the table to end the campaign, but a loss and other results going against them could see them finish as low as 15th.

Frenchman Wenger, who is leaving the club after nearly 22 years in charge, was given a guard of honour by both sets of players before the kickoff and then walked to the visiting Arsenal supporters to acknowledge them.

A Liverpool draw however would consign fifth-placed Chelsea to the dubious consolation prize of Europa League football.

The Blues are far from safe with regards to their Champions League qualification and need a win on Sunday, combined with the fact that Brighton has to beat Liverpool at Anfield.

He said: "The way the team has worked during the whole season, to be safe with five games to play, it was a pity, the bad run we had at the end and we needed to try to do something to change the luck".

The Blues appeared to have given themselves a lifeline in the hunt for a Champions League spot last weekend.

Chelsea hope to appoint a more attack-minded manager this summer in a bid to keep Eden Hazard at the club.

And only four minutes later Perez was celebrating again - Shelvey floated a free-kick to the back post which Florian Lejuene knocked across the face of goal and the Spaniard poked it home, as Newcastle recorded a famous victory which left Chelsea floundering in fifth place.

"Are Chelsea are in a better place now?"
