No Champions League for Chelsea after Newcastle thrashing

No Champions League for Chelsea after Newcastle thrashing

The loss, coupled with Liverpool's 4-0 home win over Brighton, ended Chelsea's hopes of securing Champions League football for next season as Conte's defending champions finished five points behind the Merseysiders in fifth. After the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge against Huddersfield Town, last night put their qualification chances under further jeopardy.

Chelsea's top-four hopes were eventually crushed following their 3-0 away defeat against Newcastle United on the final day of the season on Sunday.

But that too could not save Antonio Conte from his inevitable sacking as Chelsea have already lined up a list of replacements.

Speaking to reporters, according to the Express, Cahill said: "That was a below par performance, and for whatever reason we were way off the pace today. He avoids the question; he doesn't want to answer it".

"I have a contract and the club know very well the situation". Speaking during an interview with Evening Standard said: "The smart money is on them hiring another of Europe's most established managers and giving him a decent budget to sign top-class players".

"For me, the key has been the unity, togetherness between fans, players, staff, everyone, and the work-rate of this group of players".

"For me, this is important, not speculation around me. You'll have to ask the club about that", Conte added.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, hailed "a almost ideal season" after they prepared for the Champions League final against Real Madrid later this month by confirming their place in next season's edition. "It's not easy to play better than we did in some moments but to do it more consistently is the next challenge for us". What if they gave an opportunity to a promising coach within the English game, like Sean Dyche?
