Chelsea 'surprisingly' making advances to get Frenchman to club this summer

Soccer: Conte rejects claim he wants to leave Chelsea

The Blues are now adrift in the race for the top four, but know that a win is a must if they have any hopes of catching Tottenham before the season ends.

During a six-year spell with Chelsea, Wilkins played 179 games for the club, scoring 30 goals and handed the captaincy at the age of 18.

West Ham were nearly pegged back again on 79 minutes as Marcos Alonso fired a long range effort but Joe Hart produced a brilliant save to deny the Spanish defender.

The Blues boss spoke passionately about the club's former captain, who died aged 61 on Wednesday after a cardiac arrest. "You must win this game if you want to reach a target, in this case we want to reach a place in the Champions League".

Chelsea are looking to replace Antonio Conte next season with former Paris Saint-Germain Coach Laurent Blanc, claim Tuttomercatoweb. The most important thing for us is to focus on ourselves and finish the season in the best possible way'. And then, one chance for West Ham, we concede a goal. A good performance, yes, but many times we have had a good performance and lost the game, or drew the game, many times we've had a good performance but not won the game.

There was a minute's applause ahead of kick-off, fittingly in this weekend's final Premier League game - as fans also applauded on the eight-minute mark, for an emotional minute.

"Those who know me very well know I am trying to put all of myself to change this situation because I have great responsibility".
