Conte accepts Chelsea's UCL hopes fading fast

Conte accepts Chelsea's UCL hopes fading fast

We stole a point but we needed it.

That referred to Chelsea's implosion under Mourinho, who was sacked halfway through a season which saw the west Londoners finish 10th under interim boss Guus Hiddink.

Chelsea's hopes of Champions League qualification faded with a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield on Wednesday and the Blues now require other results to go their way on Sunday to have any chance of making the top four.

"With £2m more in prize money per Premier League place, there could be a small transfer budget boost from winning this final game".

After a disappointing season and overall performance, Chelsea has now turned its attention to the FA Cup, and after the season they've just had, their chances at qualifying for next year's Champions League is looking very unlikely. If they lose out to Liverpool in the race for a spot in the top four it just might.

"It can happen in the past. Don't forget two years ago Chelsea ended the season 10th and not in the final of the FA Cup, not in the semi-final of Carabao Cup". They were eliminated in the last 16 (of the Champions League) against Paris St Germain.

"With no Champions League football, It's going to be hard to keep hold of like likes of Eden Hazard who is now as short as 5/4 to leave the club he's been at for six years this summer".

USA consumer prices rebound less than expected in April
It was the second month in a row with annual core inflation above 2.0%, the Federal Reserve's unofficial target for US inflation. In the 12 months to end-April, the CPI increased 2.5%, the biggest gain since February 2017, after rising 2.4% in March.

However, he has been relegated to a supporting role this season in a supremely talented squad that has now racked up 31 wins, 105 goals and 97 points to beat Chelsea's hitherto records of 30 wins, 103 goals and 95 points. We have so many experiences, the playoffs, the final, some very big dips in the season, five defeats in a row.

"Now probably we can finish fifth".

"I'm realistic. I think that, at the end of the season, you finish in the position you deserve".

Maurizio Sarri, Massimiliano Allegri and Leonardo Jardim have all been touted as potential replacements, but Conte says he is used to dealing with such speculation and is not thinking about the possibility of being sacked.

"As a manager I'd prefer he goes home after the [club's] awards and relax but he was early enough in bed, we organised it as much as possible". I'm very happy. I'm very happy for last season, I'm very happy for this season. With the loss of two points against Huddersfield Town, Chelsea's situation of finishing in the top four has become trickier.

"He deserved all the awards he got but I'm not in the mood to praise anybody for the last few months, I'm in the mood to think about Sunday", Klopp said.
