Ranieri proud to pass Premier League title to Chelsea's Conte

Ranieri proud to pass Premier League title to Chelsea's Conte

We tried to win our games, but last year was just an off year, especially for a team like Chelsea and the players that were here.

"We definitely feel we can do something in the Champions League", Fabregas said in The Guardian. "I think that now it's very important to enjoy this moment and to celebrate this win. So obviously I guess they will do their work now and hopefully we can finish the season with an FA Cup win as well".

Diego Costa and David Luiz barged into Antonio Conte's post-match presser to return him to Chelsea's title celebration.

"There's been no red cards, discipline has been very good, and the amount of consistency through not changing players so often has kept the players together".

Conte also has managed club captain John Terry's gradual fading out from the first team with grace and class.

It was the visitors from London who had the bulk of the attacking play at the Hawthorns but as was expected, Chelsea came up against a side strong in organisation and with plenty of bodies back.

Despite Chelsea having sealed the title, Terry will not get an opportunity to lift the trophy until after the final home game of the campaign against relegated Sunderland next Sunday.

The former Juventus and Italy boss led Chelsea, who finished 10th a year ago, to the title in his first season in charge.




And now they'll be able to focus exclusively on beating Arsenal to win the FA Cup at the end of the month.

"For this reason I have to say thanks to my players". Conte was courageous enough to switch to 3-4-3 and Chelsea never looked back as he got the best out of players who needed a new motivator and master tactician to get them firing on all cylinders - and someone who could inject an all-for-one mentality.

"It will be a hard game against a fantastic team, so we need to be at a high level".

Watford, 15th, are not yet mathematically safe from relegation, although it will take a minor miracle for them to be caught by third-bottom Hull City.

Mazzarri said: "They have to celebrate over the weekend and don't think about our game".

When it was put to him that Chelsea could have two weeks off to prepare for the Wembley date with Arsenal, Luiz interjected.

"Football is like this". We've won the title but that doesn't mean that the team can not get better. And we had an fantastic six, seven months. Why would he got back to Italy?
