Big changes imminent at Chelsea after FA Cup glory

Share

Hazard scored the first-half penalty that fired Chelsea to a 1-0 win over Manchester United in Saturday's FA Cup final at Wembley.

Hazard ensured Chelsea's season ended on a high by scoring the winning goal in the FA Cup Final against Manchester United on Saturday.

The Blues are in for what could be a rough summer, with Antonio Conte's future also up in the air. I can't change. My way is always the same; hard work and to build a strong identity with my players, I can't change. I'm terribly disappointed that we couldn't win for you, because once again your support in the stadium was wonderful.

'After two years, the club knows me very well.

The Blues have had a rather poor campaign this term after in a stuttering Premier League campaign finishing fifth on the table unable to qualify for the Champions League.

"I feel a sense of uncertainty and I think that's obvious to everybody in the last few months". But I think we deserved to win, we were the better team but that's football.

"When you decide to take a coach like me, you must know who you are taking for this job", he said.

According to Jeremy Cross, Chief Sports Writer of the Star, Pep Guardiola has made Chelsea's Eden Hazard his number one summer target and "is confident" of luring the 27-year-old to the Etihad Stadium after this season's successes.

Conte also won the Premier League in his debut season at Chelsea and England and has delivered two trophies over two seasons.

"If he doesn't, he's gone away with a Premier League and FA Cup".

Extremely consistent and energetic, the Pole would lift a huge weight of Hazard's shoulders of being the only offensive outlet for the team, allowing the Belgian to play much more freely, either out wide or through the middle. To see the fans celebrate is something we like.

"I'm just happy", Hazard told the BBC.

Meanwhile, Willian appeared to be one Chelsea player who hoped Conte would be leaving the club. My opinion on my team's performance is every defeat hurts, but for me personally, the ones that hurt less are the ones when you give everything and you go without any regrets.

Chelsea players and Conte argued for a red card rather than yellow, but Jones's attempt to play the ball saved him from a dismissal.

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".
