Willian fires major dig at Antonio Conte after Chelsea's FA Cup win over Man Utd

However, a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League means no Champions League football next season and Clarke told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek the club must "rebuild" over the summer.

The Belgian was the Blues' match-winner in the FA Cup final against Manchester United on Saturday, scoring the only goal of the game after 20 minutes.

"Like I said in the last weeks or months, I think we'll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year", the Belgium global said. "We will be ready next season", Hazard said in the London Evening Standard.

"I don't think they deserved to win", Mourinho said.

"We'll see what's going on and I am sure the board will do what needs to be done". "To win in this way this season gives me more satisfaction than my wins in the past".

Can winning the FA Cup in the last game be taken into the start of next season?

"Also in a hard season, I have showed I am a serial victor", he added.

But Conte was forced to answer yet more questions about his future in the wake of the victory, hinting he has been offered other jobs but remains committed to Chelsea.

Toure, 35, has been an icon in the Premier League over the past five years and after a season which saw him used sparingly by Pep Guardiola, he will be keen to play more regularly in the twilight of his career.

"I don't have a big desire to speak, it's better to say congratulations to the winners and that's it", a spiky Mourinho said.

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the club with Real Madrid and Manchester City believed to be interested.

"I'm a serial victor". They know our team without Lukaku does not have a presence, so putting eight or nine players in front of the box they knew they would be dominant in that direct football. It's right that the club demands a lot.

Courtois added: "I think that the transfer market has gone pretty insane".

Asked if the win against United would be dedicated to Conte, Cahill would only say: "We needed to win this for everybody, we are not in control of decisions". I'm very happy for the players and for our fans and at the same time I'm happy for the club.

With the way both teams are set up, I always felt that whoever got the first goal was going to go on and win the game, which is how it turned out.
