Chelsea had a tough season defending the title this season, having finished 10th in the Premier League table, incoming manager Antonio Conte has a tough task this summer, building the team capable of challenging the title next season.
Chelsea youngsters played key role in England’s U-21 tournament, the Three Lions having held the trophy for the first time in 22 years. Lewis Baker and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will surely be hoping to have some roles to play in Antonio Conte’s squad next season. Midfielder Lewis Baker, who has been out on loan at Vitesse this season, was named the top scorer with four goals after also opening the scoring in the final. Ruben Loftus-Cheek also scored in the 2-1 victory over France and was named as the player of the tournament.
