Conte given selection headache ahead of Barcelona clash

Conte given selection headache ahead of Barcelona clash

In the first of the Emirates FA Cup fifth-round action, Chelsea made sure they showed no complacency as they comfortably brushed aside Hull by four goals to nil.

The Tigers vastly improved in the second-half and earned themselves a spot kick which Meyler stepped up to take, only for Willy Caballero to beat away his effort.

However, agent Federico Pastorello believes that the Italian - who has had one stint in charge of La Nazionale - will honour his three-year contract at Chelsea.

Giroud left the game in the 70th minute when he was replaced by Alvaro Morata.

Marshall, Meyler, Dawson, MacDonald, Clark, Stewart, Irvine (Batty 88), Wilson (Toral 55), Evandro, Diomande, Dicko (Campbell 72).

Chelsea proved so dominant as to coast through the entire second half, with under-fire manager Antonio Conte applauding fans for lending support by pointedly chanting his name. He has not featured in a game for Chelsea since a sluggish performance against Watford in the 4-1 loss.

However, after Trump won the presidency in November 2016, he briefly considered picking Romney as his secretary of state. Romney was planning to make the announcement earlier this week, but postponed it due to the school shooting in Florida.

But Conte has urged his players not to lose focus again, with games against Barcelona, Manchester United and Manchester City on the horizon.

We have already reached the stage where no one at Chelsea is surprised by Ampadu, though his achievement in earning Conte's trust is all the more remarkable when you consider that he arrived at a club notorious for its glass ceiling as an outsider to the most talent-stacked academy in the country. With two successive wins in last two games, Cheslea are now geared up to face Barcelona in the Champions League last-16 tie where they will be expected to come up against a strong Catalan side led by the magnificent Andres Iniesta. Our start was impressive.

"I repeat, my commitment is totally for this club and we are trying to do our best". It was a positive night for us because we had the opportunity to rest some important players. "It was very important for me to score this first goal and it relieves me a little bit". I have different options. The ideal game to try to make the best decisions for this type of team, because this is a different opponent. "We're very pleased with our last two games so let's carry on".

"MAGIC of the Cup" was a phrase that Hull City manager Nigel Adkins trotted out countless times during the build-up to last night's glamour tie in the capital. "Now we have three days to decide on them". You can feel he's still a player in his head. The start on Friday was his first appearance in blue.

"In the second half we tried to manage the game".
