Conte: Chelsea Can Finish Fifth Now And Win EPL Title Next Season

But Kane proved to be their talisman once more as his 39th goal of the season just after half-time was enough to move Spurs above Liverpool into third.

The younger Ayew has 11 goals to his name this season including seven in the Premier League, If Swansea's unlikely bid to avoid relegation is to come off, he'll likely play a key role.

His night would later take him on a flight to London to collect the Football Writers' Association's award.

Salah continued: "Of course I have got ambitions for the future with Liverpool".

"But last season after a 10th place we won the league".

"It is just the start".

"The Premier League isn't comparable to the play-off final", said the German, when asked how survival compared to the May afternoon previous year when promotion was secured on penalties against Reading under the Wembley Arch. "It is just the beginning".

"We have done Jurgen Klopp a favour but that is the least that you can do for a good friend".

"It's not automatic that you finish every season in the top four".

Otherwise, they will have to settle down for the Europa League next season, and hope they can win the title again like they did in 2012.

"For now we are thinking only about Brighton".

"After that, we have five days to prepare the final". It was difficult. We worked very hard and we won. "We know it's not going to be easy". "To work very hard with my players", he added.

"The Premier League is "great" and to compete with so many strong clubs, it is a great chance to have and I am very happy with the last two seasons as I have continued to learn".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has insisted that his target will be to finish fourth on the Premier League table as they attempt to win this year's FA Cup next weekend. For this reason, I'll try and make the best decision, also for the game against Newcastle.

"But it's a pity because I saw a fantastic commitment from my players".

If Hazard and Giroud had been on the pitch from the beginning, the aftermath would have been different as goals early on would have helped the Blues to ease into the rest of the game instead of panicking and rushing towards the latter stages.

Elsewhere, Manchester City set a new Premier League points and goals record - they now have 97 points and 105 goals - by defeating Brighton 3-1.

Chelsea and England forward Fran Kirby was the inaugural victor of the women's award.

Also at Anfield, Trent Alexander-Arnold was named young player of the season, Wales worldwide Harry Wilson took the academy award and Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain's thunderbolt against Manchester City in the Champions League was recognised as goal of the season.
