Conte leads Chelsea to EPL title, but will he stay next season?

Conte leads Chelsea to EPL title, but will he stay next season?

Antonio Conte has had a dream start to his life in London this season, as he has won the Premier League in his first season with Chelsea F.C., and has a chance at completing the double by winning the F.A. Cup.

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. Vote below to have your say.

League leaders Chelsea hold a seven-point advantage over Tottenham Hotspur and can seal the title if they beat West Bromwich Albion away on Friday. You must divide the fault of this, for this reason we started this season to solve problems and to find the right solution to change the situation that was created in the last season.

Life at Chelsea, with its big-time players and trigger-happy owner Roman Abramovich, can resemble a soap opera at times but it has been one big happy family at Stamford Bridge this season.

Having won the EPL title with two matches to left, Conte now has his eyes fixed on FA Cup final, to be played against Arsenal on May 27. "Every single player found in this system the best for them".

As ever, there have been numerous stand-out players in what has been a remarkable season.




The Blues began the 2015/16 campaign as champions, but proceeded to capitulate in their title defence, and went on to finish outside the Champions League places in a disappointing 10th position.

"Michy paid me a lot with this change", Conte said. "I think it's more rumour than reality".

Add to that the regular Chelsea request of selecting the best crop from the academy (which none of Conte's predecessors have managed), and the likelihood that its rivals will get better for next season (though that was said a year ago too).

West Brom frustrated Chelsea for 82 minutes until substitute Batshuayi became the visitors' unlikely hero, converting Cesar Azpilicueta's cross from close range.

Conte has restored Chelsea to the winners' circle by rebuilding from the chaotic end of Jose Mourinho's second reign.

Conte, who has suggested he will stay at Stamford Bridge, wants to add greater depth and versatility to his Chelsea squad for next season, so he can swap between the 3-4-3 formation that has been so successful and his favoured 4-2-4.
