After title, Chelsea boss Conte sets sights on FA Cup glory

Pochettino's side agonisingly saw their Premier League title campaign come to an end when they suffered a 1-0 defeat at West Ham that allowed Chelsea to secure the title with victory over West Bromwich Albion on Friday in Conte's first season at Stamford Bridge.

"Some criticisms were deserved and others not - and if you bounce back winning the title again, that's wonderful".

The newly-crowned manager has brought Chelsea back to glory a year after another Italian, Claudio Ranieri, won the title with Leicester.

"We definitely feel we can do something in the Champions League", Fabregas said in The Guardian.

The team has also reached the final of the FA Cup, where it will play Arsenal at Wembley Stadium on 27 May.

"I think the club want to fight to win every competition and we have the same ambition".

"When you're trying to get your ideas across to the players and you listen to how hard they've worked on the training pitch, particularly to bed all the players in, you needed that preparation".

"We work only nine months together and I think if you continue with these players you can improve a lot". "Obviously after previous year, when we had a moment when we were 16th in the league, people laughed". Willian was also very good.

Smith, however, disagreed and took the last word: 'In my house, Netflix has been nothing but an absolute benefit. Actress Mallika Sherawat is now gearing up for her red carpet appearance at the Cannes Film Festival 2017.

"If I say I'm not thinking about winning the Double, I am a liar!"

As reported by Chelsea's official website, Luiz said: "He likes to work, that is his secret".

Guus Hiddink took interim charge of Chelsea last season, with the club 16th in the Premier League and one point above the relegation zone following the departure of manger Jose Mourinho.

Conte has won the last four domestic championships in which he has managed, having claimed three in a row with Juventus prior to being Italy boss.

"From that moment Chelsea became the champions-elect if you like, because then, automatically, everything dropped into place and all of a sudden they were one".

And Conte firmly believes the Premier League champions can improve even further in 2017-18.

He said: "I would like all of them back, but instead of returning I keep losing players".

The right-back, who joined from Spanish side Valencia in 2012, is not the first player to toil away in the lower leagues for many years before getting a shot at English football's top-flight.
