den Hazard joined a dressing-room full of legends when he moved to Chelsea five years ago, but, with John Terry set to bring the final curtain down on the club’s golden oldies, the Belgian believes it is time for the new generation to take on the world. “The last 10 years in Chelsea it was great,” said Hazard. “They won a lot of trophies, now it's like a new generation. Lampard is finished, Didier Drogba is finished, Ashley Cole, John Terry now. So it's a new generation and we want to prove that the club is one of the best in the world. So we have to be ready for that. We have this new manager, we have a couple of young players so everything is ready to build something.” Asked whether he is keen to take on more responsibility, Hazard said: “Me? Yeah, we have a couple of players. Now I play my fifth year at Chelsea, you know we have some guys who have a lot of experience, so we are ready for that. We have a couple of leaders - I try to be one on the pitch. We have a lot of guys who can do that.” “You know, I'm still young, I'm still 26,” said Hazard. “He (Terry) did something great in his career. I didn't win a lot yet - I won a couple of titles, but him everything. I hope to have the same opportunities.” “Sometimes you are at the top and sometimes not,” said Hazard. “People are always talking, I don't care about that. I try to be the best I can. In the world I'm not alone - they have some good, good players. I don't know if I am top five, top 10, top 20. It's not my target. I just want to enjoy my football. Players like Ronaldo and Messi are leaders. They are people that want to be better every day. That's why they are at the top for the last 10 years. They need to prove - we all need to prove - every day, but I don't think too much about that. I just concentrate on myself, on football, on the pitch, on the training ground. Then I will see.” Asked whether Arsenal tried to sign him before Chelsea, Hazard replied: “Er, no. They were talking a little bit, but not with me personally.

Thibaut Courtois has set his sights on emulating the longevity of his idol Gianluigi Buffon, and also wants to keep playing until the age of 39.

Courtois told Standard Sport: “To see Buffon playing to such a level at this age is great. I’m 25 and he is 14 years older than me. Obviously if I can still play at the level he is in 14 years’ time, I will be very satisfied. Obviously I hope nothing happens — injuries can always change the future. But I love football, I enjoy being on the training pitch, in the stadium. I guess I will still feel the same in 10 to 15 years’ time and I hope in that moment I can still produce and be at this level.” The Belgium international is rated very highly too, but admits he has not reached Buffon’s standard yet. “It’s not only his talent and quality, he also brings leadership, experience and that aura which makes strikers afraid of him,” he said. “If you watched Juventus’ win over Barcelona in the Champions League (3-0 on aggregate), the Barcelona players were forcing a lot to score. You felt the ball was never going to go in and maybe that had something to do with his aura. If it was another keeper, maybe they would have shot easier on target and scored. If you’re a great keeper you have that quality. I have it in a way already, but Buffon and Iker Casillas still have something special and are a different category of goalkeeper.” #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte #thibautcourtois13

Antonio Conte says that Chelsea's decision to re-sign David Luiz has been vindicated as he reflects on the initial criticism the club received for the move. “I think David arrived here in Chelsea with a lot of criticism," Conte said at a news briefing at Cobham Training Ground. "Not only for him, but also for me and the club. But I think David showed himself to be a great player. I think he's one of many players who has been a key player for us. When we changed and started to play with him in the middle of the three centre-backs, this choice was very good. I think this suited him perfectly. He had a great season. Now, I hope [for more], we have another game to go. I spoke with him and we have to finish this great season and make it a fantastic season." #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte #davidluiz

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says his side must forget about their league exploits in the FA Cup final, as he feels Arsenal will be out to save their season with victory.

He told his pre-match press conference on Friday: ‘I saw a lot of concentration from all my players in training, we trained very well despite the heat. I guess they are calm, it is impossible for me to not trust my players after this season, but for 120 minutes plus penalties we have to forget we won the league.' Conte even went as far to suggest Arsenal start this game as favourites in a match the Gunners have to win in order to salvage credibility from the campaign.

He said: ‘We could start as the underdog, as we won and celebrated league, but the side we face are a team that lost the Champions League next season and have this possibility to save their season. We must pay great focus and show great desire. I trust a lot in my players as they showed great concentration to win league. It will be a tough game for both teams, and we are ready to fight.' #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte

Francesco Totti should carry on playing after he brings down the curtain on his magnificent Roma career this weekend, according to former Italy team-mate Antonio Conte.

Chelsea head coach Conte reflected fondly on the duo's time together for the Azzurri at a news conference to preview Saturday's FA Cup final against Arsenal. "It's impossible for me to forget. I scored two goals for the national team, and he scored the first one because I only had to put my head forward," he said. "He put the ball on my head. Francesco Totti, he's a fantastic player, a great player and I knew he wanted to continue his career." Echoing sentiments he recently expressed regarding outgoing Chelsea captain John Terry, Conte believes Totti should remain in the field if he is passionate about doing so. "When you arrive at the end of your career, your body, mind and head tell you when it's right to continue," Conte said. "My message for him is to do what he feels is right to do. If his passion and enthusiasm is always the same, he must continue to play football. He's one of the best players not only in Italy, but in the world." #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte #francescototti

IT WAS the lowest moment of his English managerial career and Antonio Conte had only been in the country for three months. “After that Arsenal defeat, I was angry,” said Conte. “It was difficult for me to accept. For two days, it was not easy for my family to live with me, but they understand. But I channelled my anger in the right way. I tried to change the situation.” Though he never put pressure on his manager, owner Roman Abramovich was demanding answers. “Honestly, I was very calm,” said Conte. “I knew that I was putting all of myself, all my strength, into this new job. Myself and my staff were working so hard. To find the right solution quickly is not easy. You must be very good, very prepared, but also lucky . You must have the players to give you the possibility to impose your ideas. I was lucky to have a group who put themselves into my idea of football, and we put ourselves in a position where we could secure a fantastic title. The owner came for three days to watch our sessions, watch the video analysis, to stay with us. He supported me. He never showed me he was angry. The club always trusted me. I never thought the club was thinking about sacking me.” #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte

GARY CAHILL could have been lining up at Wembley tomorrow as an Arsenal player.

He said: “It was close. The move broke down on the fee, nothing to do with me. It never got down to whether or not I wanted to go there, it was between the two clubs. They showed interest, but they couldn’t agree a fee. It seemed like it went on forever, there was speculation for about a year and a half. I thought it would never happen. It was not distracting on the pitch, but personally. I had a fantastic time at Bolton, but as a player when you hear the big clubs are sniffing, you want to achieve as much as you can.” “It becomes more like an addiction,” he said. “When you get the feeling of winning a trophy, you just want it again and again. Outside my family and my kids being born, it’s the best feeling ever. It was again when we lifted the Premier League trophy the other day. You realise your career is short and you just want to achieve as much as you can. If you have no goals then what is the point of playing?” #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte #garycahill

Eden Hazard wants Chelsea to lay down a marker for next season by completing a Premier League and FA Cup double on Saturday. "It's always important against Arsenal," Hazard said. "We just want to win games, we know that every year they have some injuries in Arsenal. Even for the next season, I think Saturday is a good opportunity to put pressure on them and to all the opponents also. The last 10 years in Chelsea it was great. (But) Lampard is finished, Didier Drogba is finished, Ashley Cole, John Terry now. They won a lot of trophies, now it's like a new generation.

CHELSEA star Willian says he's not interested in moving to China - and he wants to become a British citizen.

He told Brazilian TV channel SporTV: “Of course money is important, no one can survive without money. But money is not everything. If I can get this British citizenship, I can start to do documents next year. You have to take a test to get that passport too. Surely this passport can open doors in the future. I can get my passport and I can get it for my family too. That’s the purpose I have. Besides the objectives on the pitch, besides enjoying the country, getting this passport would be another prize for me.” #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte #willianborges

CHELSEA must show the right "desire" if they are to beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final this weekend, according to Antonio Conte. "Tomorrow we will see if we are able to exploit this opportunity in the Arsenal team," Conte said. "In this type of game, this is a final, it is not important to miss one or two players. But it is very important to play with the right hunger, will and desire. Good organisation is important, but it is not enough. Tomorrow our desire must be more than them. It is not important the players we have to play. To do what we know, I think this is the most important thing." #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte

Antonio Conte hosted a lunch for journalists after his pre-match press conference for the FA Cup final against Arsenal on Saturday to apologise for his persistent lateness this season.

The 47-year-old has become well known for running late at his Friday media briefings but he put on a buffet at Stamford Bridge on Friday evening.

The buffet took place in a corporate box that is next door to the one used by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. #BlueIsTheColour #CFC #CFCFans #CFCFamily #CFCTillIDie #BPL #EPL #PremierLeague #PreSeason #CFCTour #Champions #ComeOnYouBlues #WearChelsea #PremierLeagueChampions #ChelseaFC #COYB #KTBFFH #IfItsNotBlueItWillBe #CFCArmy #TheBlues #Chelsea_KTBFFH #ChelseaFans #ChelseaKWT #CFCNews #CFCTransfers #CFCTour #AntonioConte #Conte
