Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has said that the club must "divide the responsibility" for the Blues' poor league finish this season.
Conte's side, having won the Premier League title in his term, finished in fifth at the end of the current campaign and will play Europa League football next season.
The Italian told reporters that his team must learn how to maintain a winning formula if they are to reclaim the league title.
"Last season was a wonderful season because we did a fantastic work with the players. Last season we reached an important success," the manager said. "Then you have to understand, when you win and the way that you win, is if you go at 300km/h.
"Or if you are winning and you are going at normal velocity and you don't risk burning your engine. You must be very good to understand this especially when you win. When you win, you must understand which is the best way to improve.
"Last season we won and we divided this big win with the players and with the club. Now, this season, we finished fifth. We must divide the responsibility with the club, the manager and the players in the same way, and then to try and gain experience. If you are clever, if you are intelligent, you understand what is wrong and what is right. And you to try and improve."
Chelsea face Manchester United in the FA Cup final on Saturday, with the capital side looking to claim victory after losing out to Arsenal at Wembley last season.
