Antonio Conte has challenged his players to complete a fantastic season by clinching the double by beating Arsenal in the FA Cup final.
Chelsea clinched the Premier League title with two games to spare on Friday after Michy Batshuayi’s late goal ensured a 1-0 win over West Brom.
The Blues can now turn their attentions to a Wembley date with Arsene Wenger’s side and Conte is determined to ensure his maiden campaign in England ends on a high.
He said: ‘It has been a great season. To be a fantastic season we have to win the FA Cup.’
