Dwight Gayle's first-half header and two goals in the space of four minutes from Ayoze Perez led Rafael Benitez's team to a deserved triumph against their lacklustre opponents.

Emenalo left the London side in November after 10 years and was an intermediary between Conte and the Chelsea board.

There will be one last challenge for the team this year as they look to win the FA Cup against Manchester United on Saturday.

Newcastle United ended the season in style by beating Chelsea 3-0 at St James's Park yesterday. "Newcastle were more determined than us".

He said: "I just think Conte has shot himself in the foot, the way he come up in his press conferences, immediately he couldn't get the players he wanted".

Asked if this was his final Premier League match as Chelsea boss, Conte replied: "Do you think so?"

"We wanted to end the season in the best possible way, but we can do better than this", he said.

With the campaign done and dusted, we've handed out some player ratings to those signings who joined the club in the summer and in the January window. No, I don't think it will be. Not speculation around me. "We have six days to change our approach and desire and will to fight".

Chelsea now face a second season outside the Champions League in the last three years, which represents a significant blow to the club in both financial and footballing terms.

"Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him". How damaging is it not to be in the Champions League? Had the Champions League truly been on the line it would have been very hard to take.
