Our 10th-placed finish last season meant Chelsea missed out on Champions League football this season.
Chelsea look set to make a return to the Champions League next season and Antonio Conte insists Chelsea must qualify for the Champions League every year.
“The Champions League, I think, must be an appointment for us every year. It must be (at) our house,” Conte said.
“We started our season trying to fight until the end to win the title and to try and fight until the end to be in the right position to go into next season’s Champions League. This was our target.
“It wasn’t easy to start the season and know that six strong teams fight for the title and the Champions League.
“Don’t forget, in this six teams, two won’t play in the Champions League next season. They have to go into the Europa League, which is a bit different.
“Now this league is very, very difficult. To win the title and also to find a place to play the Champions League is not easy.”
