Newcastle thrash Chelsea 3 - 0 in epic Premier League clash

Since beating Chelsea 3-1 in April Tottenham are the ninth best team in the Premier League

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has said the departure of the team's former Technical Director Mike Emenalo made the season hard for the Blues.

Asked what he had done wrong, Conte said: "The other team was more determined than us and I think that today I wasn't able to convey that determination to my players, to play the last game against Newcastle".

The Blues were second best on a day when they would have wanted to keep the pressure on Liverpool, as well as serve a warning to the Red Devils and former manager Jose Mourinho, who lie in wait at Wembley next Saturday.

Chelsea finally got a shot on target in the 52nd minute, as a magnificent flick from Olivier Giroud was tipped over by Newcastle's on-loan keeper Martin Dubravka.

Newcastle United's Dwight Gayle celebrates scoring his side's first goal against Chelsea. However, he was later replaced by Joselu at the start of the second half, due to an injury.

"On many occasions throughout the season they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory".

He also said the father of the children has been contacted and that police were helping him during this hard time. In Osmington that in Western Australia, was discovered seven bodies, four of them children .

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte brushed off suggestions that he had coached his last Premier League game for the club as he took responsibility for their 3-0 defeat at Newcastle on Sunday.

"For that, I'm the first to answer for this bad game". None of the intensity and organisation that had helped them win the Premier League title last season was on show; they looked passive, disinterested and as if they would rather be anywhere else than the North East.

See our brutal player ratings at the bottom of the article, do you agree with us? "There is another year on my contract and I will try to do my best to move forward". It will be interesting to see if Chelsea make any move for the English defender this summer, following a series of impressive performances this campaign.

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.

With the game over as a contest, neither side were prepared to put too much effort into the closing stages and the game naturally petered out, with Newcastle ending the season on a high and Chelsea left needing to regroup ahead of next week's FA Cup final with Manchester United.
