Newcastle 3-0 Chelsea: Magpies bury Blues in final game

Jamaal Lascelles of Newcastle United walks off the pitch after being sent off during the Barclays Premier League match between Everton and Newcastle United at Goodison Park on February 3

"I still have one year left on my contract", he said.

"This group of players have done so well, so it would be easy to say, "Okay, well you are already in the top ten". For him, it was massive to be sure that they could be in the Champions League".

Owner Mike Ashley is desperate for him to stay having once again promised him "every penny generated by the club". We have to start working on that - each one will be different. For the unbelievable support and your presence every single game.

Rafa Benitez will meet Newcastle United managing director Lee Charnley on Sunday for talks which can decide his future on Tyneside, with the supervisor nonetheless none the wiser what the switch funds is for subsequent season. Gareth Southgate will name his England squad for the World Cup on May 16, and both he and Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles may feel they have an outside chance of being given a place on the plane to Russian Federation.

"On many occasions throughout the season, they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory".

Kenedy took to Instagram and wrote: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Newcastle United".

It might have been out of embarrassment because their underwhelming season, but when the final whistle rang on the game at St James', several Chelsea tried to run off down the tunnel without saying their goodbyes to the supporters - most of whom had travelled Chelsea's longest journey that season, from London to Newcastle. The Blues were struggling badly at that point, collecting just six points from their previous seven games, but it is testament to the quality Antonio Conte has in his squad that they hauled themselves back into the race, which has been between themselves, Spurs, whose win over Newcastle on Wednesday confirmed their qualification, and Liverpool.

This shouldn't detract from the incredible job Benitez has done in leading Newcastle to a top half of the table place, with famous home victories over Manchester United and Arsenal being the highlights of a great season. All these things to enable you to attract players, all these things can make a difference.
