Chelsea legend suggests Conte can have few complaints if he's sacked

I think that's something everyone at the club can be proud of.

"I have a contract and I'm committed for this club. [They can make] the decision to change me, [but] in two seasons I brought two trophies for this club".

EDEN HAZARD has hinted a summer departure from Chelsea is unlikely as the Belgium playmaker targeted another Premier League title.

The Champions League is the one major club trophy he is yet to win during his spell at Stamford Bridge.

"To finish this season and win an important trophy like this shows great commitment and desire to finish the season in the right way despite the difficulties".

Asked if the win against United would be dedicated to Conte, Cahill would only say: "We needed to win this for everybody, we are not in control of decisions". It is not just Antonio, I think it's everyone. They know our team without Lukaku does not have a presence, so putting eight or nine players in front of the box they knew they would be dominant in that direct football.

The acquisition of Hazard would make the City attack even more formidable and send a message to the Premier League that City mean business as they look to retain their title next year - something that hasn't happened since Manchester United threepeated from 2006/07 to 2008/09. I showed this in England in a hard moment for the club after a 10th-place finish [in 2015-16]. There is also this possibility with this group of players we did the maximum.

"My opinion on my team's performance is that every defeat hurts, but for me personally the ones that hurt less are when you give everything and you go without any regrets", he said.

They are already a long way ahead of the rest and they are going to invest again this summer - I am pretty sure of that - so they are only going to get stronger. Because after these two seasons I will always love this colour, these fans, this club.

The triumph added gloss to a disappointing 2017-18 campaign for Antonio Conte's Chelsea side that saw them finish fifth in the Premier League, 30 points behind champions City.
