Manchester United have concerns about the fitness of Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea, manager Jose Mourinho has said.

Conte's side finished fifth in the Premier League and won't be playing Champions League football next season.

More importantly, Chelsea fail qualify to the Champions League and will join Arsenal in the Europa League. The 41-year-old former England worldwide Murphy believes appointing Dyche would lead to success returning to west London.

Chelsea needed a victory at Newcastle to have any chance of fulfilling their slim hopes of a top four finish, but they were well below par and ended with 23 fewer points than their title-winning campaign 12 months ago. "But what if Chelsea did it another way? I am the first person to answer for this as I am the coach of this team".

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

Conte admitted in his news conference that Chelsea must rediscover their desire to have any chance of beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final next Sunday, but the Italian would not be drawn on intensifying speculation that he will leave Stamford Bridge this summer regardless of the result.

"Last season he helped me a lot during the season".

"I hope very much that Rafa will remain at Newcastle United".

"I'd certainly like to think people gave their all today, and to not do so would be extremely disappointing", Cahill was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. This season, until he left, he helped me a lot. If we think we can play a game like this in the final of the FA Cup then we don't have a chance.

He said: "For sure we must change". Now I think it's important to finish this season and whether I am confident about next season is not important now.
