I am truly sorry that we have not been able to retain our top-flight status for them. I think maybe in a couple of weeks' time, I can sit down with you and we can talk about it.

It was a reminder of the disparate group of multi-millionaire characters whom Conte has dragged together and forged into a title-winning team in such a short space of time. In addition, it's claimed that the Nerazzurri are ready to give the former Juventus and Italy boss £125m to spend this summer to build his own squad and of course there's the important factor that it would allow Conte to return home and be with his family who haven't moved to London this year.

As for the man himself, Olynyk predictably says he's not a dirty player.

Just like we all predicted. So well try to keep this thing going for a Game 7 at home.”. Through the regular season and the playoffs combined, the Caps have scored only once at 4-on-4. It would be hard for the spectrum of pleasure or pain to be more accentuated. "We're having fun now". Maybe Trotz is onto something here. Few thought that the Washington Capitals would go down 3-1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the best-of-seven series and probably even fewer thought that they would come back ...

Andre Gray says he will speak to Burnley at the end of the season about a contract extension amid reports he could be sold this summer. Burnley were again without the injured Ben Mee and Michael Keane, but James Tarkowski and Kevin Long again did well in the circumstances, bar the two goals: "Our two centre halves are earning their spurs at this level, and Longy has come from nowhere, and credit to him physically for playing two back to back games".
