With his side having already clinched the Premier League title, Chelsea boss Conte made several changes for Monday's 4-3 win against Watford, resting the likes of Diego Costa, Gary Cahill and David Luiz.

Clement revealed last month he would explore the possibility of signing the 36-year-old if his side secured Premier League safety, which they have now done after Hull City's relegation.

Terry somewhat surprisingly suggested after the game against Watford that he could hang up his boots altogether at the end of the season, but Conte does not think the centre-back will retire just yet.

Chelsea defender David Luiz accepted he would be a "liar" to say he was ignoring the prospect of winning a Premier League and FA Cup "Double" with the Blues.

Former England captain Terry is likely to receive numerous offers to play on, but he is contemplating quitting altogether when he leaves the club where he has spent his entire career.

"But I am Chelsea through and through and sitting there watching my club go on to do what they have done this year has been fantastic", Terry told the club's official website. Watford is a really good team and I still follow them.

"We're losing a legend", he said.

Conte said it was normal for a team to lose concentration at this stage of the season but he has confidence in his team. "Tonight was tough but next week I'm going to be in bits", he added.

"I have to take my time and then make the best decision".

"Now it's very important not only to finish the celebrations, but to continue all this week and to arrive and to play on Sunday against Sunderland, to try to win".

"There were a lot of frustrations, but this is a big club, with a lot of good players".

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

The Blues will be presented with the Premier League trophy when they host relegated Sunderland on Sunday.
