Antonio Conte sends message to Arsenal after Chelsea win the title
The Chelsea manager wants a great campaign to become a fantastic season with victory in the FA Cup final
Antonio Conte has already set his sights on beating Arsenal in the FA Cup final after Chelsea won the Premier League title on Friday night.
The Italian coach won the English top-flight crown for the first time thanks to Chelsea’s 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.
Michy Batshuayi scored an 82nd-minute winner to secure the necessary three points to crown Chelsea as the 2016-17 Premier League champions.
The Blues have been sat at the top of the table since October and Conte has been credited with revolutionising the Premier League with his 3-4-3 tactic.
Chelsea have the chance to cap a magnificent first season under Conte when the west London side take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley later this month.
The Blues were 4-2 winners against second-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals to secure the first FA Cup final berth since 2012.
Speaking to Sky Sports after Chelsea won the Premier League title on Friday night, Conte switched his focus to the FA Cup final later in May.
“Now this is a great season,” Conte said.
“I think for it to become a fantastic season we have to win the FA Cup.”
