Hopes that Stamford Bridge will host Champions League football next season hang by the slimmest of threads. "The other speculation is not true". For me, it was very hard when I was a player.

Chelsea boss Conte has cut a frustrated figure at Stamford Bridge all season, complaining about the club's spending power and attitude to defending the title. The Italian coach, whose contract runs until the end of next season, pointed out he expected Chelsea to struggle when he went public with his displeasure at the club's failure to strengthen the squad at the start of the campaign.

Chelsea have been left in the shade by Manchester City. "The only thing we can do is to try to do everything in every game, to show great desire, to show great pride to finish the season in the best position in the table". We are talking about improving but now another not positive result as we drew. you have to win this game. "This must be our target now".

There have been widespread reports Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is considering moves for ex-Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and Juventus chief Max Allegri.

Asked about fans booing Chelsea's performance, Conte said: 'For sure there is disappointment and this is normal. Our times at the club didn't overlap, so I never had the good fortune to be coached by Ray, but I have met him on several occasions and he was always such a warm and friendly man.

"They are trying to get away from the relegation zone and will want to win, but we also want the three points".

"Listen, Liverpool drew yesterday and there was a very slim outside chance that we might be able to catch them", Cundy said on Chelsea TV. "He is a great player and will probably leave one day for a high fee, but I wish him to stay with us for a long time".
