Sinclair was concerned by how Chelsea's midfield fared against Newcastle and admits Manchester United will physically outgun the Blues in the centre of the park.

But there are more immediate reflections to be made by Chelsea's strategists on what went wrong this season, the abrupt decline from the team brilliantly guided to the 2017 Premier League title.

The Italian, who insists he is still in the dark about his future, saw the Blues produce one of their worst displays of the season and admits the campaign has been a massive letdown.

It is also said that the relationship between Hazard and Conte became "strained" as the campaign has progressed.

"I hope [the fans] don't want to see me leave".

"In this case, what the players did last season, and what they have done this year, was massive".

The Premier League season comes to an end this Sunday with the final Champions League place to be decided.

"I would like to thank Rafa Benitez for his magnificent achievement this season", said Ashley.

He continued: 'This year, they sold [Diego] Costa and replaced him with [Alvaro Morata], that didn't work.

Chelsea, though, can not accept anything less than a win, and even that may not be enough.

A serial victor at Juventus, he marked his first season in charge of the Blues by winning the Premier League.

Antonio Conte is focused only on winning the final game of the Premier League season at Newcastle, not the FA Cup final, so Chelsea can capitalise on any slip up from Liverpool.

Although Chelsea's chances of a top four finish were out of their hands given Liverpool's win over Brighton, their attempt to bridge the gap was nonetheless feeble.

"Any of the two clubs can clinch the final qualification spot and it will take the determination of the players to get the job done".

The draw is available to support at [4.20] but a more astute angle of attack may be to back Chelsea to win by exactly one goal again at 12/5.

Conte agreed his team had looked "less determined" than Newcastle.

With an eye on the FA Cup final Chelsea withdrew Eden Hazard and Giroud as they fell to a defeat that brought a frustratingly inconsistent defence of their title to a disappointing end.

"We deserved to lose because our start wasn't good and we suffered by losing every ball". The former Nigeria defender had cited a desire to spend more time with his young family, although, as it transpired, he would take up a similar position at Monaco a little over three weeks later.
