Ayoze Pérez double embarrasses Chelsea and leaves Antonio Conte irate

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

It's not a game all Gunner fans are looking forward to though as a 3-1 defeat to Leicester in their last outing meant they have now lost a staggering 13 league games this season.

Conte's future at the West London club has already been a subject of speculation, and it looks very unlikely that the Italian will stay in his current job for another season.

It is also said that the relationship between Hazard and Conte became "strained" as the campaign has progressed.

"I am committed to this club, for me this is important".

What a start to football club management for Antonio Conte. His favoured formation hasn't had the same effect as in his first season and with a weakened squad, fifth place is exactly where Chelsea deserve to finish this year.

'Two years ago, Chelsea ended the season 10th and were not in the FA Cup final, did not reach the the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup and were eliminated in the last 16 of the Champions League. Swansea are at home to Stoke - for the Swans to avoid relegation, they need to win big and hope Southampton suffer a heavy defeat against City.

The dethroned Premier League Champions Chelsea have been linked with a potential appointment of Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, ex-Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique and Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri. Other people can judge our season.

Eden Hazard has scored more goals against Newcastle than any other Premier League side, netting six times. Regardless of this, they should have enough quality to secure a victory which could prove crucial to their top four finish. I would also like to applaud the players, led fantastically by the captain Jamaal Lascelles.

But Klopp's men have won just one of their last five games, and are fresh from a loss to Chelsea and are not in the best of forms at the moment.

The Chelsea board have yet to make a final decision on the former Barcelona manager or the current Napoli boss, but Enrique - who is now without a job - wants big wages and a sizeable transfer budget.

Chelsea FC will take on Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley later this month. We'll see. The public adore me, I love my teammates, my family are good here.

Chelsea will try to finish the season on a high when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup final next weekend, and Conte, whose contract expires in June 2019, is not thinking about moving on. The former Nigeria defender had cited a desire to spend more time with his young family, although, as it transpired, he would take up a similar position at Monaco a little over three weeks later.
