John Terry applauds the Chelsea fans after the final whistle at Stamford Bridge on Monday

Conte thinks Terry should not retire and instead stick by his decision to continue playing regularly elsewhere, which was his motivation for departing Chelsea. No use in betting, games or single club/league/player publications.

The club captain made his first league start since September as a much-changed Chelsea celebrated winning the title with a thrilling 4-3 win over Watford on Monday.

Earlier this year JT confirmed he will be leaving the Bridge after making over 700 club appearances, most as a captain.

Chelsea made it 3-1 in the 49th minute when Kenedy's deflected shot was brought down by Ake, who squared for Batshuayi for a tap-in.

It was a performance that not only highlighted the attacker's clear commitment to the Blues, but also how influential he could be for them once again next season - especially considering Antonio Conte's side will be battling it out in the Champions League as well. When I say that to people, they don't really understand it.

"For me, hands down this team here is by far the best Chelsea team, probably it's ever been", he said on Sky Sports.

Batshuayi, 23, joined the Blues from Marseille for £33m in the summer and while he did score the goal that secured Chelsea the Premier League title against West Bromwich Albion on Friday (12 May), the Belgium worldwide has only started one top-flight game for Antonio Conte's side. I have time to make the best decision but in this moment I have 13 or 14 players who deserve to play in the FA Cup.

On his team's performance, Mazzari added: I'm proud of my team and my squad.

Win against relegated Sunderland and Chelsea will become the first team to win 30 league games in a 38-game campaign.

Chelsea wrapped up their sixth English title with a win at West Brom on Friday, and the home fans were in a celebratory mood as they welcomed the champions back to Stamford Bridge.

The Spain worldwide got himself an orange before returning to the bench, but Conte was more interested in something sweet and joked he was not happy to see Costa return without a treat.

Watford finished the game with 10 men after centre-back Sebastian Prodl received a pair of late yellow cards for untidy challenges on Batshuayi and Pedro.
