Antonio Conte is highly unlikely to continue in his role as Chelsea manager and only has himself to blame for the club's downfall this season.

There will be one last challenge for the team this year as they look to win the FA Cup against Manchester United on Saturday.

Dwight Gayle headed in the opener in the 23rd minute, and Perez's second-half double ended a run of four successive losses and clinched 10th place, fuelling fresh calls from the stands for manager Rafael Benitez to extend his stay at Newcastle.

"We want to finish this season in the best possible way and our fans deserve more".

"For sure we must change because if we think we can play a game like this in the final of the FA Cup, we don't have a chance", the Italian said after the game.

Asked if this was his final Premier League match as Chelsea boss, Conte replied: "Do you think so?"

We have five days to change our approach and desire and will to fight. No, I don't think it will be. Prior to the Huddersfield game [a 1-1 draw in midweek] we were in good form but that's not an excuse.

More importantly, Chelsea fail qualify to the Champions League and will join Arsenal in the Europa League.

"Last season he helped me a lot during the season".

Speaking to reporters, according to the Express, Cahill said: "That was a below par performance, and for whatever reason we were way off the pace today". Had the Champions League truly been on the line it would have been very hard to take.

"N'Golo Kante was back to his masterful self against the Champions League finalists".
