John Terry and the most prolific defenders

Rita Gibson | 20 May, 2017, 00:02

Relegated to a bit-part player this season, the 36-year-old made his first league start since September and marked the occasion with a goal on 22 minutes.

Chelsea could win the double too with an FA Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley to come.

It capped a brilliant first season for Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge following his arrival at the club as Jose Mourinho's permanent successor last summer.

"I never wanted to be that player that was kind of hanging about, stopping the younger players from coming through". "It depends if the right offer comes... but I haven't made any decisions yet and I am just evaluating my options".

"I have to take my time and then make the best decision".

"He's struggling with a pain in his back", Conte said of Loftus-Cheek.

"Otherwise he stays here".

"For me, hands down this team here is by far the best Chelsea team, probably it's ever been", he said on Sky Sports. Chelsea will always be his home.

"That's our B team against a team that are mid-table and that shows you the standard", he continued.

Mattis: Military solution to NKorea would be 'tragic'
But he stressed the need for a peaceful resolution by working through the United Nations and with countries including China. Mattis says the North's latest missile test showed it wasn't heeding cautions from the global community.

Terry expects an emotional conclusion to his Chelsea career when the Blues host Sunderland on Sunday.

Antonio Conte and John Terry had an unusual way of celebrating.

Terry had nothing but praise for former Juventus and Italy boss Conte.

The ball dropped kindly for Terry in the area, he struck it with his shin and it went in off the post.

Indeed, Willian finished up with the most chances created, successful dribbles, accurate crosses and touches of the ball of any Chelsea player and his huge contribution finally told at the end as he set up Fabregas for the 88th-minute victor.

"In this situation, you must have a plan in your mind", he added.

Conte, meanwhile, feigned offence after being told that striker Diego Costa, who was an unused substitute, had visited the buffet in the media room at half-time. I had good answers from the game.

But the man Chelsea fans hail as "captain, leader, legend" in banners draped around the stadium was able to compensate for years through his astute reading of the game, accurate passing, natural strength and sheer commitment. It's a great achievement.

"Now we need to win our last game at home to Sunderland to do that and we need to keep our winning momentum going. It's important for the history".
