The Reds go into the final weekend knowing they can still finish anywhere from third to fifth.
That referred to Chelsea's implosion under Mourinho, who was sacked halfway through a season which saw the west Londoners finish 10th under interim boss Guus Hiddink.Conte, who won the title in his first year with Chelsea, said: "We're struggling to take a place in the Champions League".
His clubmate Dele Alli and Manchester City's Raheem Sterling are also likely starters with Manchester United's Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford pushing for selection. This is due to a combination of factors.
"It would have been possible to have done it a bit earlier but for different reasons - one of the reasons is being in the Champions League itself".
Recent form has been quite worrying. Lose - and they could potentially drop five places and lose £10m!
"It's hard with all the challenges he has, I know for the journalists it's important, but last night to go to London for a party it's not good".

They are stealing a living in the Premier League, and it is a matter of time before they get found out. He added: "The Champions League final [defeat to Barcelona] was 2006, 12 years ago".
"As a player there are so many challenges". But even if the opportunity were there to rest players, there is no guarantee Klopp would do it.
And it could prove the last straw for Blues owner Roman Abramovich as he reportedly plans to part ways with Conte at the end of the season. With the World Cup just on the horizon, these players will want to pick up the pace rather than ease into the summer.
"I think you have to be stable in a division first before perhaps you can make bigger steps". Lallana can look to the example of Vladimir Smicer in 2005 for inspiration. Veteran midfielder Yaya Toure was made captain for his final home appearance and goals from Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho ensured he finished on the winning side.
Lallana has had a miserable time of it this year due to various injuries, so he's certainly due a change in fortune. Incredibly the Gunners have lost seven in a row on the road as only the bottom three plus Brighton have worse away records this season.
He said: "You want to be playing Champions League football and I can't wait for those Champions League nights at the new home". "Our next step always has to be to stay in the league - we're still learning and improving and we'll try to add to the squad where we feel necessary".
In doing so, Pep Guardiola's men, 20 points clear at the top, also set a new record for most goals in a season in the Premier League era, with strikes from Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho taking the tally to 105.
