Conte targeting FA Cup and top-four finish

Conte targeting FA Cup and top-four finish

After the club's defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League, Chelsea are left to focus on trying to win the competition, as well as finish in the top four of the Premier League table.

The Blues are preparing to face Leicester City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday, while sitting in fifth position in the league standings, four points behind Liverpool in fourth. I think we showed great character in both games. But you have to take things step by step. There's no time to regret.

Mourinho's one and only FA Cup triumph was with Chelsea in 2006-07 and the Portuguese will be well aware that adding a record-equalling 13th for United is now the bare minimum requirement from his second season at Old Trafford. This is the FA Cup quarter-final.

The Italian was keen to praise his players following the loss at the Nou Camp, saying Messi was the difference.

After a banner was unfurled with the slogan "God save the King" before kick-off, Barca's fans were celebrating within 129 seconds as Messi found the net before Chelsea had even made a pass.

"A fantastic player moved the final result". "We know about Vardy and his characteristics". He scored three goals. "We had plenty of chances".

"Now we are not playing every two days - we played against Barcelona but we have the full week to rest and recover - so I'll pick the best solution for tomorrow's game".




Barcelona's director of institutional relations Guillermo Amor made no secret of the club's ambitions for the season when the Champions League last-eight draw was made in Nyon, Switzerland.

Barca boss Ernesto Valverde said: "That goes with Messi's personality, the sense of responsibility that he has". We will see what happens in Champions League.

Chelsea were level at 1-1 going into the match at the Camp Nou but after two minutes and eight seconds, a mistake from Courtois saw Lionel Messi score from a tight angle through the legs of the Belgium global.

"It was a really tough game". We can do better in every aspect. "Scoring so early meant we could control the game, but we didn't feel we had sentenced the tie until we got our third goal".

"We're talking about Barcelona or Spanish police and stewards".

He said: "The Champions League is complicated, a bad day leaves you out".

"We want to win everything".
