Abramovich trusted me - even after Arsenal defeat, insists Conte

Rita Gibson | 27 May, 2017, 13:03

Antonio Conte helped the west London club win the title in his debut season and has an opportunity to help them win the FA Cup. Next year with the Champions League, we have to increase in numbers and in quality.

The new contract will also contain a compensation fee worth €20m which the Italian will be entitled to if Chelsea sack him during the duration of the deal. "I hope to stay for many years". "But we have to play great attention (due to the uncertainty) in modern football".

Arsenal, meanwhile, will have their eyes on the trophy for very different reasons, as they look bag some silverware to make up for missing out on a place in the Champions League for the first time in almost two decades.

They look at Chelsea's ability to renew themselves and win major honours, regardless of the countless managerial changes at Stamford Bridge; they see Tottenham emerging as a potential force for the next decade; they see United go through a painful post-Alex Ferguson transition, yet still manage to win three major trophies in 12 months - as many as Wenger has brought to Arsenal in the last 12 years.

"For sure, I don't trust that tomorrow will be the last game for Arsene", Conte said. In England, this target, sometimes you can undervalue this.

Ospina had been designated as the Gunners shot-stopper for the Champions League and Cup games, but a muscle injury in the latter stages of the campaign, saw Cech feature in the semi-final win over Manchester City.

She said, "You know, I'm going to be coming to the United Kingdom , actually quite a lot coming up". "It was hard for you guys, I know that, it was hard for me, because we all love music".

There are potentially seismic days ahead for Arsenal, and - win or lose - the Cup final could become secondary to any decision over their long-serving manager's fate.

"Yes [I will be a Chelsea player next season]", Willian told the Evening Standard. Arsenal could be missing some key players for the final as well.

Chelsea, a year after finishing in mid-table after their woeful title defence cost Jose Mourinho his job, are now on the brink of the club's second league and cup double under Conte. "But I think the club and me, we have the same point of view on this".

"At the moment, my situation is very clear". Laurent Koscielny will be suspended after being sent off in Arsenal's last match of the league season, while Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel Paulista are both injury doubts.

"For sure, we'll try to improve our squad for next season because we have to face an important competition in the Champions League".
