I'm delighted to be part of this team and city.

Antonio Conte admitted Chelsea must improve dramatically on their display at Newcastle to have any chance at all of winning the FA Cup.

"No, I don't think so". It's not important. The most important thing is what the club thinks, not you or the speculation about me.

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

Speaking to talkSPORT the Spaniard claimed: "The way that he has been behaving and playing during the season, especially at the end of the season, I think he is a different kind of midfielder so I am sure he will be in consideration". Eden Hazard tops this list and the club is desperate to make the Belgian sign a new contract extension in their attempt to bring a top manager.

Walmart also mentioned no celebration would be responsible to pay a termination fee if a share issuance or invest in arrangement with Flipkart were also terminated.

"The players care, and the manager and staff and everybody. You'll have to ask the club about that", Conte added. "There are other people to judge our season and [say] which are the problems to finish out of the Champions League".

Chelsea were denied a place in next season's Champions League when they were well beaten 3-0 at Newcastle as Liverpool easily beat Brighton.

Question marks also remain over the future of Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez, who is set for key talks with the club's owner Mike Ashley in the next week to discuss his potential summer transfer budget as he looks to build on an encouraging campaign. "But I don't know really, this is just my opinion".

With a squad that was being tipped for an immediate return to the Championship, Benitez worked his magic and guided the Magpies to a top-half finish.

"After Saturday, we go on vacation and then we will see next season". The fans have ambitions, we have ambitions and we need to know if everyone has the same feeling.
