John Terry's Chelsea departure is a 'pity,' says manager Antonio Conte

Chelsea skipper John Terry admitted that he could retire at the end of the season after making a goalscoring return for the soon-to-be-crowned champions against Watford.

Conte made nine changes to his starting XI and having kept faith with the same tight group of first-teamers for the vast bulk of the season, it was little surprise their understudies looked a little undercooked.

But the former England captain was at fault for the equaliser when barely two minutes later he back-headed a ball he should have cleared, sending it straight to Etienne Capoue for an easy headed goal.

Batshuayi was rewarded for his title-clinching goal at West Bromwich Albion on Friday with a first league start in Chelsea blue and it was after he had seen a shot deflected wide that the hosts took a 22nd-minute lead.

― Reuters picLONDON, May 16 ― Chelsea defender David Luiz accepted he would be a "liar" to say he was ignoring the prospect of winning a Premier League and FA Cup "Double" with the Blues. Although the makeshift side looked frail at the back, they commanded the midfield and were always risky going forward.

Watford put a brief damper on fans' celebrations with Daryl Janmaat dribbling through for Watford's second goal and substitute Stefano Okaka equalising in the 74th.

Two minutes later Terry gifted Watford a rare away goal scored by Etienne Capoue, while he was also culpable in Stefano Okaka's strike which made it 3-3 before Cesc Fabregas' 88th-minute victor.

But the final word went to Fabregas, whose scuffed effort deceived Gomes, as Watford centre-half Sebastian Prodl received a second yellow card late on for a lunge on Pedro.

"John took this decision to continue to play regularly and play every game and for this reason he preferred to leave Chelsea and to play every game I don't know where".

The Spain worldwide got himself an orange before returning to the bench, but Conte was more interested in something sweet and joked he was not happy to see Costa return without a treat.

"It's amusing to see both teams score four and three at this stage of the season, but when you have won the league you can allow this type of situation. Azpi played in a fantastic way", Conte added.

Chelsea's John Terry, centre, celebrates scoring a goal during the English Premier League soccer match between Chelsea and Watford at Stamford Bridge stadium in London, Monday, May 15, 2017. This is the right final for John.

"First of all I am looking forward to seeing him lift the FA Cup and I think that all the players want to see this because it is the right final for John", Conte said.

"But genuinely I haven't made any decisions yet".
