Defender Gary Cahill expects to see a very different Chelsea next season having been taught some tough lessons this term.
The Blues endured a nightmare campaign as they failed to ever get their Premier League title defence off the ground, eventually ending the season in 10th and without a trophy.
Major alterations are expected to be made to the squad by incoming manager Antonio Conte during the summer as the Italian bids to restore the team to their previous standing in the top flight.
Cahill says he expects a new-look Chelsea to take to the field for the opening day of next season and is confident the changes made will bring success back to Stamford Bridge.
The England defender also hopes those players that do remain in west London will learn their lesson from this season.
“The lesson from this season is that I never want this season to happen again,” said Cahill.
“I never want to feel like this again Â– especially at a club the size of Chelsea because we are used to winning competitions and fighting until the very end to win trophies.
“This season has been very different and the lesson is that I want to take the taste of this season and this feeling and the way the season has been and never let it happen again.
“We have seen him (Conte) and he has been to the training. In terms of additions, that is natural and normal and it has to be done.”
