Conte to stay and improve Chelsea next season

In addition to the title, in other words, Conte and Chelsea also win the unofficial prize for transfer-market nous, given that all three signings were relatively cheap and has had a big season.

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has said Antonio Conte "did not perform a miracle" in leading his side to Premier League glory - but praised his fellow Italian nonetheless after the Blues secured the title on Friday night.

Pulis praised his players and Albion supporters for testing Chelsea, who had to dig deep before Michy Batshuayi's victor eight minutes from time.

Question: How do you improve on this season?

"It will be very tough to compete but we feel we can be strong next season, not just in the Premier League but the Champions League as well". Now the manager doesn't really have any specialist wingbacks to deputise and we've seen a range of players fill in there. "This result is for the attitude and behaviour of my players", Conte said, as reported by Chelsea's website. "It's disappointing for us, but you've got to give Chelsea, Antonio and his coaching staff great credit for what they've achieved this year".

All the talk coming from Italy about Conte focused on his intensity. So hopefully we will prepare well for the FA Cup final and rest well for next season'.

"Conte works with passion every day".

Even then, Conte could not rest easy and his wild touchline celebrations were the flawless window into the soul of a ferocious competitor who thinks nothing of waking in the middle of the night to plot another tactical masterstroke.

And he worked that apparently innocent nature on us all - players, reporters, fans. To enjoy and to celebrate because it's very important. We must do this. "But we will go there and fight". Luiz: "Last one, eh!" We have to improve in the next season - we need to find solutions.

Luiz monitored the time taken for questions and Costa held the fire extinguisher aloft in the direction of journalists.

"Then all of a sudden, it was, 'right, listen, we're all going to do this my way'". For this reason I have to say thanks to my players.

"I'm living great emotion at this moment". First, you must find men and then good players.

Conte: "We are working only nine months together". Of course, these players are giving me a lot of satisfaction - they are giving everything and trying their best.

Lampard was quick to point out that while several Chelsea players have had great campaigns, Conte is the architect of the team's success. The French worldwide became the first player in the history of the Premier League to win back-to-back titles with different clubs. Maybe a freshen up, don't lose your best players and add one or two at the top end.
