'Chelsea need to shape up ahead of Cup final'

  • 'Chelsea need to shape up ahead of Cup final'

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.

Chelsea were dismal and boss Conte acknowledged they face certain defeat against Manchester United at Wembley next weekend if they produce a similar performance. "If we think we can play a game like this in the final of the FA Cup then we don't have a chance", Conte told reporters as he looked ahead to Saturday's Wembley showdown.

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

After seeing his team end a four-game losing streak, he said: 'Tenth position, great game, three good goals - a almost flawless Sunday'.

"The most important thing is what the club thinks, not you or the speculation about me. I know he will be back on Tuesday".

Chelsea failed to register a single shot at goal in the first half and Dwight Gayle gave Newcastle a deserved lead in the 23rd minute, putting Rafael Benitez on the path to a first Premier League win against one of his former clubs, as well as a 10th-place finish.

"We wanted to end the season in the best possible way, but we can do better than this", he said.

"But I think to finish the season this way is not good for the team, it's not good for the players, it's not good for the fans".

Apple Has Bigger Autonomous Car Fleet Than Uber, Tesla, Google
That gives it the second-largest fleet in the US , ahead of Waymo's 51 cars, but still well behind GM Cruise, which boasts 104. Behind Apple is Alphabet's Waymo which now has 51 self-driving vehicles and Elon Musk-owned Tesla which has 39 cars.


Chelsea FC are a staggering 27 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City to highlight their regression this term.

The loss means that Chelsea will assuredly miss out on Champions League football next season, and will have to settle for the Europa League.

There is a possibility that Conte's team could still end the season on a high despite his side recording streak of frustrating results. "But I don't know really, this is just my opinion".

'Next we will see. They certainly did not look like a team who won a title just this time past year, with their fiery new Italian manager.

With a year remaining on his contract, Benitez added: "Maybe this achievement could be close to the top trophies that I've won".

"We have to be sure we do the right things".

"We're still talking and we will see what happens".
