Antonio Conte would love to stick with Chelsea for a generation

Conte could clinch the "double" in Saturday's FA Cup final against London rivals Arsenal.

This is the penultimate weekend of the #GE2017 campaign. He said "retired people die!"

"In this game I think we must see ourselves and be very focused on this game and do what we know".

The source said Mr Corbyn is paying for his own ticket and will be attending with his son, Seb, who is also an Arsenal fan.

Chelsea congratulated on winning the double as Wenger opts for Ospina over Cech
Ospina hasn’t looked at all convincing this season

Former Chelsea striker Gianluca Vialli this week called on Conte to emulate Sir Alex Ferguson's lengthy tenure at Manchester United and the Blues boss said he was keen to build for the long-term. He, too, can point to impressive form - six straight league wins - and a stirring recent Wembley triumph, his side having overcome Mauricio Pochettino's unsafe Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in the last four. So, in that sense, he's been a massive influence for me in helping me through my years at Arsenal, just as has many players in this squad and players before this squad.

Wenger will become the most successful manager in FA Cup history with a seventh title if his Arsenal side beat Chelsea in Saturday's 17:30 BST kick-off.

"I think a plan becomes special if you win".

"Then, if the club give me the possibility to stay here and to extend my contract, for sure I am available to do this". Sometimes you can undervalue this, they played 19 years in a row in this competition, it shows that his work is very good.


"Without the ball we have to press and just defend the box from the box, but it's still like a learning curve for us with a back three for those who haven't played it before". I want to win the cup for my club and that's all I care about.

Arsene Wenger has found success with the system in recent weeks, with the Gunners wining seven of their last eight league games since adopting the new strategy. It will be a tough game for both teams but we are ready to fight, play a good game and try to win the trophy.

Antonio Conte hopes he will remain in charge of Chelsea for a long time, but admits it will be hard to do so given the climate of modern football.

Champions League - Wenger selected Ospina for every minute of Arsenal's disastrous European campaign, which of course ended with a 10-2 aggregate loss to Bayern Munich.


Jurgen Klopp's desire to bolster the spine of the team appears to have seen him turn towards Oxlade-Chamberlain, as well as other targets, who would undoubtedly be drawn to the prospect of featuring in his favoured central midfield position. "Also, my players have this dream".

Conte, 47, does not smoke, generally steers clear of champagne and even eschews carbohydrates, but he will make exceptions if his team manage to complete a Premier League and FA Cup Double.
