Chelsea ended the season fifth on the table after losing against Newcastle 3-0 at St James Park today.

Chelsea had slim hopes of making it to the Champions League but couldn’t even beat Newcastle which sealed our fate for Europa League football next season.

Speaking after the match, Conte told reporters that he loves to win and fifth is a big disappointment for him.

He said: “There was a great frustration because in our mind there was will to finish the season in the best possible way. This time from the start we did not show the right will to finish the season in the best possible way. Newcastle outplayed us and deserved to win.

“For sure I like to play to win, and this season I did not win the title. I won three with Juventus and one with Chelsea and when I start a season I always want to win. To finish fifth is the big disappointment for me.”
