Antonio Conte: I 'wasn't able to convey that determination' to Chelsea players

Conte's side have a chance to atone for a below-par fifth-place finish - which condemned them to a place in next season's Europa League - when they face United at Wembley on May 19. If we think we (can) play a game like this in the final of the FA Cup, we don't have a chance.

A win against Antonio Conte's side would likely see Newcastle finish in the top half of the table, which would represent a remarkable achievement considering how much money Benitez has had to work with. Prior to the Huddersfield game [a 1-1 draw in midweek] we were in good form but that's not an excuse. The chances were zero.

Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko would be "disappointed" to see head coach Antonio Conte leave the club this summer. Warnock spoke to Sky Sports and said, "He's brought it upon himself with his attitude in press conferences, the way he speaks, When he was asked about his future next season, if he wants to be there he says yes, it's as simple as that".

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has challenged his players to end the season with the victory over Chelsea he believes they deserve.

Amd when quizzed if Sunday's defeat was his last Premier League game in charge of Chelsea, Conte said: "I have a contract and I am committed to this club". No, I don't think it will be.

"The players love him, a manager of that level who's been at big clubs and won trophies, you've got to do all you can to hold onto him". The Italian's has been the subject of constant speculation that his second season at Stamford Bridge could well be his last after a disappointing season which sees the Blues finishing fifth place and missing out on a Champions League spot in the process.

"We will try it again". For sure we can do better than before.
