Former Premier League striker Alan Shearer believes Chelsea’s poor performance in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal was a result of the players partying too hard after Premier League triumph.

“It is two weeks since Chelsea won the Premier League title at the Hawthorns and, by the looks of things, they have done a lot of partying since,” Shearer told the BBC.

“Whatever the reason, Antonio Conte’s side did not have their usual edge against Arsenal and their performance at Wembley was totally different to what we have got used to seeing from them this season.

“They started slowly and could not pick up their tempo – it took them 29 minutes to have their first shot on target, and right through their team they lacked the intensity that has brought them so much success.”
