Defiant Antonio Conte goads Chelsea after FA Cup win


Eden Hazard's first-half penalty, after he had been fouled by Phil Jones, was enough to earn Chelsea their eighth FA Cup triumph.

Jesse Lingard has claimed Manchester United were the better team in Saturday's FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea, admitting that the loss was his "worst feeling" in football to date.

"Like I said in the last weeks or months, I think we'll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year.

I am sure the club will make the best decision what they feel".

West Ham are hoping to appoint former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini as their new head coach this week. He showed again he is a game-changer with his victor in the FA Cup final on Saturday and he is good enough to go wherever he wants to. However, this facet that had enamoured Chelsea fans and Premier League observers in 2016 went missing this past season.

Hazard was still the one who did something special to beat Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday and now he has a great opportunity to make a real impact in Russian Federation this summer too.

Pep Guardiola's side will seek to become the first team to win back-to-back championships since Man United ten years ago, with Chelsea seeking to stop them.

The two rivals, recently bitter enemies, embraced at the end of a final which was more notable for its first ever use of video technology than for any of the football on display.
