After everything that's Happened Manager Finally Commits To Chelsea

Willian desperate to stay at Chelsea… but it depends whether Antonio Conte is sacked

Supporters noticed the account run by the Manchester United manager was not active over the weekend, prompting reports it had been removed in response to criticism received after the FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea on Saturday. However, this facet that had enamoured Chelsea fans and Premier League observers in 2016 went missing this past season.

Hazard has two Premier League titles with Chelsea since arriving in 2012. The FA Cup victory provided a great day out for the Blues fans and a chance to get one over on Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. The fans have been incredible all season they have stuck by us through the ups and downs and I can only say thank you.

"If City keep playing like this, it is going to be hard, but you never know in football", Hazard said.

The players picked up on that and that gave them some sort of excuse for not performing as well as they did when they won the title in his first season in charge. The man who picked up the mess, Mourinho, had left Stamford Bridge two years ago and managed to regenerate the team into title winners, before seemingly falling victim to the same political pressures that undid his predecessor, had one last parting shot to deliver.

Mourinho claimed United were the better team against Chelsea at Wembley.

"Whatever he or the club decides, they will know what they do", he said.

In an interview given following the season-ending game win over Crotone, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has admitted that he has failed to reach an agreement with Sarri over a new deal. They still had plenty of options up front with Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford, as well as Anthony Martial on the bench.

Man United fought back in the second half, creating a series of openings and pinning Antonio Conte's team back, but couldn't find a goal to force the game into extra time.

The Belgian feels fifth-placed Chelsea need significant improvement to close the gap on champions Manchester City, who finished 30 points ahead of the 2016/17 winners. The general consensus is that the players will feel much better under new guidance. If you want to change, you must change many players.
