Chelsea manager Antonio Conte doesn't believe he and the club are about to part ways, telling reporters he expects to be in charge of the Blues next season after the 3-0 loss against Newcastle United on Sunday.

Dwight Gayle's first-half header and two goals in the space of four minutes from Ayoze Perez led Rafael Benitez's team to a deserved triumph against their lacklustre opponents.

"We wanted to end the season in the best possible way, but we can do better than this", he said.

Mike Ashley has asked Rafa Benitez to stay at Newcastle United. They also were level at 4 following Jamie Vardy's second of the night when Kane completed his brace.

On this evidence, the casual spectator would think it was Newcastle preparing for an FA Cup final, not Chelsea. Newcastle continued in the ascendency, riding every Chelsea challenge; Shelvey saw another well-struck effort whistle past the post before Perez went close just before halftime.

Here are four talking points as the curtain came down on the campaign in stunning fashion. However, he was later replaced by Joselu at the start of the second half, due to an injury.

Karnataka Polls: Neither Siddaramaiah, Nor Yeddyurappa Will Become Chief Minister, Claims JD(S)
However, before the formal announcement of the results, several agencies conducted exit polls, predicting the outcome. Yeddyurappa is the chief ministerial candidate for BJP and Congress is contesting the present CM Siddaramaiah.

'For this I am the first person to answer for this as I am the coach of this team and I am the first person to answer for this game'.

In the aftermath of beating Chelsea on the final day of the season, the club have released a statement from the owner.

Chelsea's transfer strategy last summer was heavily criticised with Conte himself believed to be unhappy and many feel it could be even more troublesome to attract players without Champions League football this time around. They stepped it up a little after the break, with Ross Barkley forcing a superb save from Martin Dubravka in between Perez's double, but the mood of Conte was fascinating, given everything that has happened with his bosses this season. "If we want to achieve something, then we have to understand what we need to achieve that".

Alan Shearer has taken to Twitter to suggest that Newcastle have enjoyed a fantastic first season back in the Premier League, while he also lauded the supporters for the way that they have stuck by the Magpies this term. I'm very happy for last season.

They have the opportunity to end the season on a positive note in next Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United (kick-off 17:15 BST).
