Chelsea future clearer next week, reveals Conte

The equation is quite simple ahead of Sunday's final day of the Premier League season; victory for Chelsea at Newcastle and defeat for fourth-placed Liverpool at home to Brighton would secure a Champions League berth for the west Londoners.

The Blues travel to St. James' Park to face Newcastle United on Sunday before bringing down the curtain on 2017 /18 with the FA Cup final vs Man United next weekend. "As you know very well, our job is very hard because [your job] is in the balance every day". Caretaker manager Guus Hiddink led Chelsea to a 10th place finish, before the Italian took over in summer 2016. It was difficult, we worked very hard, and we won, after a 10th place.

"There are not too many young centre-backs who can play in the Premier League and they are English, so he has many positive things".

Roman Abramovich, meanwhile, appears to be ready to replace Conte and Napoli's Maurizio Sarri and Luis Enrique are at the top of his wishlist. Last season he helped me a lot.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's future has been the subject of intense speculation all season, and it now seems that the Blues playing squad fully expect to be playing under a new coach next season.

"You must know there is this possibility because you play in a strong league", Conte said.

"I think we must be focused on this season and then it will be the right moment for the people to understand the situation and find the best solution in the best possible way". For a second season in a row, we're fighting to win something.

"He did a great job for this club for many years".

"Now you can finish fifth; you start with a bit of an advantage on when you finished tenth". We'll see. The public adore me, I love my teammates, my family are good here. I trust a lot in my work, I trust a lot in my capacity and the capacity of my staff.

Emenalo is best remembered by many Chelsea fans for the rare interview he granted to the club's in-house TV channel immediately following Jose Mourinho's departure in December 2015, in which he coined the phrase "palpable discord" to describe the toxic atmosphere that had developed between the manager and his players. For sure, in the next week, the situation will be more clear for the end of the season.

In terms of team news, Conte revealed that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was back in contention following his midweek absence with a back injury.
