Chelsea: Phil Thompson reveals secret to Antonio Conte's success

Chelsea: Phil Thompson reveals secret to Antonio Conte's success

Eden Hazard has been crucial in decisive moments for Chelsea throughout the season.

Chelsea were crowned Premier League champions on Friday after a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion saw them go 10 points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have three remaining games this season. "Sometimes you score a lot, sometimes you don't", said the Italian striker. He won the league three seasons in a row during his time with Juventus and was eventually offered the Italian National Team job.

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Chelsea intend to open talks with Conte over a contract extension this summer.

Back in the dressing room, Conte walked through the door after some TV interviews and was soaked by a huge bucket of water.

In his previous stint at Chelsea, Luiz's penchant for hazardous sorties from centre-back had seen him branded a liability and there was puzzlement when he was brought back to Stamford Bridge.

Former Chelsea star Frank Lampard has warned that the Premier League champion will face "a big test" to continue its dominance next season.

With Atletli, he has garnered experience at an even higher level and played in last year's UEFA Champions League final. Manchester United will look to sign Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak should David de Gea leave in the summer.

Although previous year Italian papers might have shown much more enthusiasm for Ranieri's win, they have been quick to praise Conte for doing the having an instant impact in the Premier League and establishing an Italian dominance in England. They have the ideal opportunity to win two silverwares this season if they beat Arsenal in the final. "It's the second season, and the formation won't be a surprise". It is the Blues' fifth Premier League title in 13 seasons.

But, they have to keep their feet on the ground as they will be up against Arsenal in the FA cup final soon.

Antonio Conte and his players were able to take the acclaim on a lap of honour after the final whistle in an ill-tempered but thrilling encounter. "After this win, we must now be very happy; it is for the players".

28 " games won so far, which is more than any team in the league.

There is also another factor that is quite astonishing about Arsenal changing to a 3-4-3.

"This is incredible, especially after a year ago", he is quoted as saying by The Mirror. I think this result is for this attitude, this behaviour of my players.

It will be very tough to compete but we feel we can be strong next season, not just in the Premier League but the Champions League as well.
