Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has revealed what he expects his side to do against Newcastle United in Sunday’s final day Premier League clash.
The Blues’ hopes of playing in next season’s Champions League football faded away when they drew 1-1 to Huddersfield.
Conte’s side must defeat Rafa Benitez’s men today and hope for Brighton to beat Liverpool or Leicester City to win Tottenham for the Blues to secure EPL top-four and qualify for Champions League next season.
The Blues are currently occupying the fifth position on the Premier League table with 70 points from 37 games.
Conte said he expects his side to get the three points against Newcastle, but admits the situation to qualify for Champions League football next season is not in their hands.
“The situation, especially for a place in the Champions League, is not in our hands,” Conte told reporters ahead of Newcastle clash.
“But we have to try to get three points against Newcastle, then to drop something positive for us.
“Now we must be focused on the league, to try to finish in the best possible way.”
The Blues will play against Manchester United in the FA Cup Final later this month.
