Batshuayi's late victor guides Chelsea to Premier League glory

Batshuayi's late victor guides Chelsea to Premier League glory

"Congratulations to Chelsea. They have had a great season and deserve it, they were better than everyone else in the Premier League", said the Italian.

"If I say I'm not thinking about winning the double, I am a liar", Luiz said on chelseafc.com.

Asked if he would be at the club next season, Conte told reporters: "Yeah, and we have to improve next season".

"We had a bad season [in 2015-16]". We had a moment when we were 15th, 16th in the league.

Watford is already sure off its Premier League status heading into Sunday's final game against Liverpool.

Conte, an Italian who in the past led Juventus to three successive Serie A titles, is only the fourth manager to win the Premier League title at the first attempt.

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

For John Terry it was a special celebration, as the 36-year-old club captain will leave Chelsea this summer as a five-time Premier League champion. "For this reason, we try to keep the best players", said Conte.

'After previous year when we had a moment when we were 15th, 16th in the league, people laugh and players get criticised, ' he added.

Terry, Chelsea's emblematic skipper, will end his 22-year association with the club at the end of the season and seems certain to start at least one of their final two games.

"Everybody is used to playing for trophies and previous year that was not the case and everybody's pride was hurt".

"The big change was the shift in the system after they lost to Liverpool and were beaten 3-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates".

"We work only nine months together and I think if you continue with these players you can improve a lot".

2,341 — Azpilicueta has made more passes than any other Premier League player. We're very proud about that'. There was a lot of laughter towards us. So obviously I guess they will do their work now and hopefully we can finish the season with an FA Cup win as well'.
