Conte says Terry ‘deserves the best’ for Bridge farewell
Terry is Chelsea’s most decorated player, having won five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, the Champions League and the Europa League.
Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is the favourite for the players’ prize, having already been named the PFA (Professional Footballers’ Association) Player of the Year and the FWA (Football Writers Association) Player of the Year.
The Blues manager hasn’t been afraid to make some big decisions in the Premier League too, after Conte took off Hazard with 16 minutes to go in their clash at West Brom on Friday night. For this reason, I think on Sunday we’ll see what happens.
“He’s a legend for this club”.
Spurs have fallen short this season and last season in the title race, and have just lacked something extra.
Like all Premier League matches this weekend, the match kicks-off at 3pm on Sunday, May 21.
“John Terry has been a colossus at this football club but he wants to play for another couple of years”, Chivers told Goal . If we win on Sunday, we could end up with 29 points from the second half of the season. “To try to win the 30 games in this league and then to help the goalkeeper (Thibaut Courtois) to win the golden glove”, said Conte.
“We have these two targets, and also to prepare the right way for the final of the FA Cup against Arsenal”.
Defender Azpilicueta has been ever present for Chelsea this season, not missing a single minute as they have kept 16 clean sheets.
Like their rivals, Chelsea are expected to spend this summer.
Chelsea’s team being so settled has been great news for Conte, but bad for the club’s fringe players who have seen their playing time very limited as a result.
“For sure, Gary has good prospects of being captain, but now it’s important to finish the season”. “To start to think about next season is very unsafe because we have different targets still to reach”.
