Chelsea miss out on Champions League

Chelsea provide Courtois update as he misses Huddersfield clash before FA Cup final

Thubaut Courtois sustained a back injury ahead of the Huddersfield clash

Chelsea must win at Newcastle on Sunday and hope Liverpool lose at home to Brighton if the Blues are to qualify for the Champions League. It means you must pay great attention for the present and the future. Then we don't know, at the end of the season, if we have friendly games [before the World Cup].

"This season, until he left, he helped me a lot too". "For sure it was a big loss". I remember very well, it was after the United game'.

Emenalo joined Monaco as technical director three weeks after his exit from Chelsea.

Asked if appointing a new technical director should be a matter of urgency, he replied: 'This is not my decision. This is a decision for others'.

Conte has been at loggerheads with the Chelsea board all season over recruitment.

Countrymen Massimiliano Allegri and Maurizio Sarri have emerged as possible replacements following Chelsea's struggles this season with the Blues in danger of missing out on the final Champions League qualification spot - Liverpool two points clear heading into Sunday's season finale.

Manchester United's Goal-Keeper David De Gea Wins His First Golden Glove
Courtois has been let down this season by Chelsea's defensive frailties, as well as making a few mistakes of his own. Mourinho did reserve praise for de Gea, calling his shutout award a "great team achievement".

"I did the rotation also against Burnley".

"Probably I can change something, but not because I am thinking about the FA Cup final, only because someone could be exhausted after two tough games in three days". We'll see. The public adore me, I love my teammates, my family are good here. He worked very well.

"I think you remember".

The likes of Andreas Christensen (22), Tiemoue Bakayoko (23) and Alvaro Morata (25) featured with varying degrees of irregularity throughout the season and should provide a bit of hope looking forward, but they've hardly been handed the keys to the auto the way Conte would have you believe.

"When you're manager it's normal a lot of time to transfer your emotion in your house with your family", he added.

Hazard is understood to be interested in a move to Real Madrid should any interest materialise, but with no approach made by the Spanish giants the Blues remain hopeful that the Belgium star will remain loyal should they hire an attack-minded manager.
