Conte defends resting Hazard against Huddersfield

Chelsea need to beat Newcastle and hope Liverpool slip up at home to Brighton to qualify for next season's Champions League. They will also force Morata to take a wage cut if he wants to sign for them, as they can not match what he now earns at Chelsea.

"We dropped many points this season, and if we stay in fifth it means we deserve it".

It's been a season to forget as they made a mess of retaining their title and they couldn't even sign off in style at Stamford Bridge, the meek 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town typifying their whole campaign inside 90 unexciting minutes.

"I did the rotation also against Burnley", Conte said.

The Blues boss made six changes, leaving out the likes of Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud for the game at Stamford Bridge, where the home team dominated but were unable to find a victor after Marcos Alonso's second-half equaliser.

The Blues will then take on former coach Jose Mourinho and Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley on 19 May. "To make rotation, it means playing with players like [Alvaro] Morata, Willian and [Andreas] Christensen, players who usually are in the lineup from the start".

Reports are growing that Juventus want to bring Alvaro Morata back, as Chelsea would let him go on loan with option for a total €62m. At Burnley we won the rotation was good.

"We have a squad that can win, today we spent a lot of energy against Liverpool". People said that lineup was not good, but we won.

Chelsea complained at referee Lee Mason blowing for half-time just as they were about to take corner.

"Now [next season] is not important". Now it is right for everyone to be focused on the present and finish this season in the best possible way.
