Conte, however, believes everyone at Chelsea must accept blame if Champions League qualification proves elusive and, as part of that bargain, players may feel a duty to stay and return the club to the top level of European football.

Speaking at the time, Chelsea Supporters' Trust chairman David Chidgey said: "If we can put together a decent case and the club take that to Uefa, backed by the supporter organisations, something might actually register with them". For sure, we must reflect at the end of the season. Instead, this season, we have struggled a lot.

He added: "Andreas Christensen is still a young player who is playing at this level for the first time, so it's understandable that he could be exhausted".

"We must be frustrated".

UEFA ought to take these actions very seriously and dig deeper into finding out which party was responsible for the incident.

Finishing outside the top four could have implications for the Blues' chances of securing the long-term futures of the likes of Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois. I didn't see many players leaving then.

We have to prepare as if Chelsea are going to be at their best, with their best players available. But I'm not alone.

"It is hard, very difficult, but it is possible", he said. Everyone has to find the desire to fight.

The Blues face Southampton in the FA Cup semi-final on April 22, but before then they face the Saints on April 14 in the Premier League. Me, my staff, the players and the club, about this season.

The south coast outfit can actually jump outside the bottom three today with a win, should results elsewhere go their way, but that will be easier said than done, with Chelsea determined to put their poor recent run of form behind them.
