Chelsea Clinch FA Cup

Grant SmithMay 22, 2018

The Blues beat Manchester United 1-0 in the FA Cup final on Saturday as Conte completed the eason with a second trophy in English football, after winning the Premier League title in his first campaign.

"I'm very satisfied because today it was very hard to win the FA Cup against a really great team like Man United so we must be pleased".

Hazard added: "I am at Chelsea and have two years left on my contract".

Chelsea ultimately finished fifth, five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool and the final Champions League qualification spot, while they, like many others, were well off the title pace, ending the season a mammoth 30 points behind champions Manchester City.

"I think that the transfer market has gone pretty insane". We have to play strong defensively if we want to win a trophy or take a place in the Champions League. You have not seen a big Chelsea performance but we defended well. I am sure, if I was a guessing man, they will have spoken between the club and manager. "Okay we don't play in the Champions League but past year we didn't play in it and won the League". The rumour market is abuzz with various reports linking the FA Cup winners with various candidates to replace their Italian manager.

The way Chelsea kept his side out in the second half at Wembley clearly frustrated him but I would still ask the question why he waited until then to play on the front foot? I know that right now words are not enough but this is all I can say to you.

Extremely consistent and energetic, the Pole would lift a huge weight of Hazard's shoulders of being the only offensive outlet for the team, allowing the Belgian to play much more freely, either out wide or through the middle.

Wise spent 11 years at Chelsea between 1990 and 2001, and he believes that current owner Roman Abramovich will have expected the club to be at the very top-end of the Premier League table this season.

Alexis Sanchez, meanwhile, cut a frustrated figure at Wembley by sitting away from his United teammates as Chelsea's players picked up the trophy. Signing someone like Willian will surely be a good solution to that with the Brazilian a proven Premier League customer.

The winger has had a terrific season, scoring 23 goals and assisting 8 across all competitions and has been picked in Deschamps' World Cup squad, with the coach's words only fueling further speculation.
