Conte 'committed' to Chelsea, but…

Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud signals a heart shape towards the fans

Forward Olivier Giroud has scored eight times in nine Premier League appearances against Newcastle

The defeat confirmed Chelsea's absence from the Champions League next campaign, with last season's Premier League champions having to settle for Europa League football next year.

Conte's open pessimism, stretching back to the prediction in August that this would be the most hard season of his managerial career, has been relentless and it is this attitude that makes him seeing out the final year of his Chelsea contract such an unlikely prospect, regardless of the FA Cup final result.

Their defensive organisation was embarrassing at times in a performance that did not bode well for the Blues' chances of lifting the FA Cup in next Saturday's final against Manchester United at Wembley.

Newcastle wrapped up the season with an impressive 3-0 home victory over a dejected Chelsea side on Sunday afternoon. Six top teams at the start of season are ready to fight for places in the Champions League.

"I am very happy for last season and this season and don't forget, if you're clever, you learn and you continue to learn and improve yourself and try to be better in the future".

At the time of writing, it's not clear whether Chelsea gained a place in next season's Champions League, while United saw Man City win the Premier League. If the Magpies take points from Chelsea they will prevent the Blues from qualifying for Champions League.

"[It's been] a fantastic experience for me", Conte said.

"I'm very lucky to have a person very close to me that helps me in every moment, in a positive moment, in a negative moment, to face the situation in the best possible way".

Chelsea before the clash needed a win and also hope that result at Anfield where Liverpool will be playing Brighton and hope result goes their way.

"People say we wouldn't gel together and we're a Championship side, well if that's the case then the manager has got us all together and we're sat in the middle of the table".

'Next we will see.
