Newcastle vs Chelsea : How Perez killed it

They have the opportunity to end the season on a positive note in next Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United (kick-off 17:15 BST).

Antonio Conte is not treating Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United as his final Premier League match in charge of Chelsea.

Chelsea, meanwhile, finish in fifth place, outside the Champions League positions, and Conte admitted: 'Newcastle looked more determined than us.

But the Italian has warned his players that they can not afford to deliver a repeat performance of their defeat to Newcastle.

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez called for the club's board to align their ambitions with those of the supporters after his team ended the season with a 3-0 home victory over Chelsea.

The final match of the Premier League campaign this season could just be Eden Hazard's last league match for Chelsea and perhaps in the Premier League as well.

'We have six days to change our approach and desire and will to fight.

"It looked to me like everyone had one eye on the cup final which is very risky and we were lucky the game was kind of irrelevant".

"They made me some offers to stay here for a few more years, plus I have to manage my family: if I chose to go to Newcastle and stay there, even in the Championship, it's also because of my family. For me, for sure, it was a big loss".

Owner Mike Ashley said: 'I hope very much Rafa will remain.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez: "I said so many times, it has been a great season".

"We didn't lose a place in the Champions League today or in the last two games".

Salah opened the scoring with his 32nd league goal of the season, meaning he finished two ahead of three-time Golden Boot victor Harry Kane of Tottenham. Despite the shortage of funds being made available for reinforcements, Rafa Benitez has managed to steer the Magpies clear of relegation and into a possible top-half finish. It's not important. The most important thing is what the club thinks, not you or the speculation about me. "What I would like is to be sure that the team is able to compete to finish above tenth".

It was a tribute to all Benitez has done this season, as well as a plea for him to stay and build on a hugely encouraging first season back in the top flight.

"Tenth position, great game, three good goals, great atmosphere during the whole game and at the end, so you could say it was a almost flawless Sunday".

Rafa Benitez will be wary of the threat Chelsea might pose, especially having been the caretaker manager of the club for nearly a full season.
