Sing up, Chelsea... Captain Cahill, Batman and Dave won the Premier League

But while Conte has said during the season that he misses his family who have remained in Italy, he has given no indication of wanting to leave Chelsea.

Terry was an unused substitute at West Brom and has not started in the Premier League since the September 11 draw with Swansea. We lost against Liverpool and Arsenal, then we went on an unbelievable run of winning games and we said together than we can win this season.

Two victories would also take us up to 93 points, just two behind the record points tally that we set in the 2004/05 campaign. Surely this term they must be the best ever team to finish 10th!

Conte has made a fair few changes to his lineup tonight.

The Italian said he and his squad had only "started to do our work".

The famous double could be secured within a fortnight against Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

"I still think a sport has to encourage initiative and if it rewards too much teams who don't take the initiative, then we have to rethink the whole process because people will not, forever, come to watch teams who do not want to take the initiative".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is already targeting his next trophy bid, even though his future remains uncertain with the English Premier League's (EPL) newest champions.

"I think in every season there are moments you have to find always the right solution", Conte added.

The club captain has said potential goodbyes before, but there will be no fourth successive one-year contract extension this summer. We have the same ambition. If the bianconeri do not lose, they will become Serie A champions for the sixths successive season. "Now it's very important to enjoy this moment and celebrate this win because to win in England is not easy", Conte told reporters at The Hawthorns. The Spain global reportedly was one of the players who fell out with Jose Mourinho last season, contributing to the negative atmosphere that engulfed the club as it finished, somewhat embarrassingly, in 10th place. And Luiz knows Chelsea must maintain momentum. Conte was courageous enough to switch to 3-4-3 and Chelsea never looked back as he got the best out of players who needed a new motivator and master tactician to get them firing on all cylinders - and someone who could inject an all-for-one mentality.
