Antonio Conte urges Chelsea players to turn great season into fantastic season

The Blues secured the Premier League title with a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Friday night, ending Tottenham Hotspur's slim chances of pipping their rivals to the trophy.

The Spain worldwide reportedly was one of the players who fell out with Jose Mourinho last season, contributing to the negative atmosphere that engulfed the club as it finished, somewhat embarrassingly, in 10th place.

3-4-3 — formation Antonio Conte switched with Chelsea trailing 3-0 at Arsenal in September, sparking a turnaround in fortunes.

"But we need to think day by day, rest well, keep ourselves very good in these next two games to have a top performance against Arsenal".

The former Juventus and Italy boss led Chelsea, who finished 10th past year, to the title in his first season in charge. He said: "I am delighted and it has been a delight for me to sit and watch from a different perspective".

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo will meet the manager this week to discuss summer transfer targets, with Romelu Lukaku, Leonardo Bonucci and Virgil van Dijk on the club's wanted list. "He hasn't played a huge part on the pitch, but the part he's played behind the scenes, I know for a fact, once he goes, everyone will appreciate him even more".

Terry, Chelsea's emblematic skipper, will end his 22-year association with the club at the end of the season and seems certain to start at least one of their final two games.

Antonio Conte revelled in Chelsea's "great achievement" before his players dragged him back into their Premier League title celebrations.

Watford is already sure off its Premier League status heading into Sunday's final game against Liverpool. We've won the title but that doesn't mean that the team can not get better.

376 — minutes played by club captain John Terry in the league campaign.

Costa and his boss exchanged "I love you's" before Conte settled back down, stating: "We work only nine months together and I think if you continue with these players you can improve a lot now they know my ideas and I know them".

"After the fairytale of my Leicester, this splendid Chelsea adventure".

'After a year ago when we had a moment when we were 15th, 16th in the league, people laugh and players get criticised, ' he added.
