Conte warns of 'real danger' against Arsenal


Conte took very little time to settle into life at Chelsea and since October his team have been nearly unstoppable.

Spain will play Colombia and Macedonia next month but Arsenal's Hector Bellerin got the nod ahead Alonso in Lopetegui's 23-man squad.

And Antonio Conte will seek to end his first season as head coach with a double with victory in next Saturday's FA Cup final with Arsenal.

Chelsea, with the Premier League already secured and playing its final game of the season against already-relegated Sunderland, staged a tribute for Terry in what he had already announced would be his final game for the club. With all the defeated play-off contenders sure to make another fist of promotion again next season, not to mention those who fell just short in 2017, picking up the pieces to go again may just prove the toughest job of all.

The afternoon was not without its emotion, either, on what was Chelsea captain John Terry's farewell to Stamford Bridge after announcing he will be leaving this summer after 22 years at the club.

Kane ended the season just 346 points shy of second spot after netting seven goals in his final two games to claim the Golden Boot with a career-high 29 Premier League goals - despite only starting 29 games compared to the Belgian's 36 starts.

Meanwhile, Hampshire's Police and Crime Commissioner's says his thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tragedy. Extra security is being laid on across Surrey and Hampshire's rail network - after last night's bomb attack in Manchester.

Addressing the supporters, Terry said: "I'll be back here one day". He's made so many appearances.

Although the Premier League has said the substitution did not contravene any of its rules, the FA has opened dialogue with bookmakers to establish the chain of events.

He said: "This is the danger; honestly, the real danger is to think that the season is finished and if you win or lose it doesn't change the season". I'm not talking tactically, I'm talking about motivation, the right fire in our soul and our hearts.

"(But) if you ask me who is the favourite now, I can tell (you) it's Arsenal. "It is great to win after the last win with Claudio [Ranieri]. Otherwise we risk a lot".

Moyes conceded the gap between the champions and the Premier League's bottom club was always going to be hard to overcome.

"When I signed here as a 14-year-old I never dreamed of doing what I've done in the game but let's celebrate today, it's going to be sad and really emotional for me and my family".
