Antonio Conte Hails 'Great Man' John Terry's Positive Influence

Former Chelsea midfielder Pat Nevin

But I am Chelsea through and through and sitting there watching my club go on to do what they have done this year has been fantastic.

"I was sitting there wishing that the boys kept winning and performing well because for me I have had my time". I had good answers from the game.

Watford manager Walter Mazzarri has revealed that he already has one eye on next season despite speculation over his future at the club.

It capped a brilliant first season for Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge following his arrival at the club as Jose Mourinho's permanent successor last summer.

Chelsea captain John Terry "should absolutely not retire" from professional football, according to Antonio Conte.

Terry has been on the bench for most of Chelsea's title winning campaign.

"First and foremost it was great for me to get in the starting lineup tonightm" Terry said.

However after Monday's insane 4-3 win against Watford, John Terry hinted that he will not play again after the season ends this weekend.

"It was probably the hardest team I ever played against, 15 goals conceded". I've made a lot of progress.

The Blues can break the record by beating Sunderland in Sunday's final league game. "Tonight was tough but next week I'm going to be in bits", said Terry.

"I knew I could get my chance against Watford, so from Saturday morning I started focusing on this game".

Terry, whose achievements on the pitch were often marred by his behaviour off it, told the BBC his defensive blunder in letting Etienne Capoue make it 1-1 should serve as a lesson to young children.

Asked why he had chose to rest so many of his first-team regulars - including Thibaut Courtois, Gary Cahill, Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa - manager Antonio Conte replied: "You don't start planning for the FA Cup final on the Saturday. And we were unfortunate because we could have scored before then with [Valon] Behrami and [Daryl] Janmaat, and these decisions made us lose the game".

What are your picks for the cup final?

Nevin feels Chelsea ultimately fielded a B team against the Hornets and believes that out of all the sides in the Premier League only Manchester United are capable of doing the same.

But according to Gary Neville, Jose Mourinho has enjoyed an even better Chelsea team than the one now being overseen by Conte.
