Chelsea now have a chance to clinch a double in Conte's first season in charge when they take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final on Saturday. Chelsea's rivals will be eager to overtake them next season. But the Gunners missed out on the top four and have a host of injury concerns ahead of the Wembley clash.

"It's always important against Arsenal", Hazard said.

"I'm very pleased with that and I just want to keep improving in every game I play. It's not about me, it's about us winning the trophy and giving absolutely everything to achieve it". As has become tradition, Chelsea have an army of youth players out on loan but their first team squad holds a lot of players that are in the prime of their careers (24-28 years of age). (But) Lampard is finished, Didier Drogba is finished, Ashley Cole, John Terry now.

"We strongly advise that all supporters arrive at the stadium no later than one hour prior kick-off to be inside for the start of the match and we encourage spectators to not bring any bags or unnecessary items with them". So we have to be ready for that.

"We have got a new manager here who is willing to give everyone an opportunity".

The Belgium worldwide shook off the disappointment of 2015-16 to reproduce some of his very best form this season, registering 16 goals and five assists as Antonio Conte's side claimed the Premier League title.

"It's not bad - but it can be better", Hazard said. "I hope to deserve this", Conte said.

"The FA Cup and Champions League, why not?" When the sides met again at Stamford Bridge in early February, Chelsea outplayed Arsenal to win 3-1. The defeat to Arsenal was probably their low point but after the change in formation, they looked unstoppable.

One player to be linked with a move to Chelsea is Romelu Lukaku, who has become one of the most lethal strikers in England since leaving for Everton in 2014, but Hazard joked that his own new contract could prevent his compatriot from a return. Not just me personally, but the other boys as well.

Chelsea, and Hazard, have been rejuvenated under Conte, but the Belgian is not concerned over his place in the global pecking order.
