Claim From Italy: Antonio Conte Warming To Azzurri Return

FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi celebrates with Andres Iniesta after scoring their first goal during the first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 football match against Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge in London on Tuesday

"As with a marriage, both parties need to be happy, yet in this profession we always have our suitcases ready".

Lionel Messi finally broke his Chelsea duck after a misplaced pass from Andreas Christensen found Andres Iniesta who cut the ball back to Messi at the edge of the box to give Barca a crucial away goal. The next month will define Chelsea's season and, perhaps, the 27-year-old's spell at Stamford Bridge. The most obvious was self-handicapping.

Speaking to BT Sport, Lampard said: "We were all looking at Eden Hazard pre-game but I think Willian was the man on Tuesday night".

The Chelsea top bosses are unhappy with Conte complaining about their transfer strategy and the Italian has also been left unhappy by the support he has received in the last few transfer windows.

Cahill has started all seven matches he has been available for since Southgate took charge of the national team and even captained the side in the friendly with Germany. His relationship with Mourinho, a manager notoriously suspicious of flair players, was not ideal. "It will not be easy, but we can benefit from that".

And if Conte is to be praised for constructing a near-impregnable structure to fend off Barca's attacking stars in the first third, he must also be criticised for leaving his players isolated in final third. If any opponent is going to inspire the winger into a match-winning performance, it is the United boss. He can tell his kids that he once outshone the best of his generation. But Conte's job does not hinge on a quarter-final vs. semi-final vs. final appearance.

John Stones, of Manchester City, Manchester United's Phil Jones and Harry Maguire, of Leicester City, have overtaken him in Southgate's pecking order.

And Hazard, who was played in a false 9 position - favoured as the Blues' spearhead over fit-again Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud who warmed the bench - has said how he prefers to see more of the ball. This is the more important of the two Manchester games. "And it's not easy for him, he gets so little space, it's hard for him". Pedro and Willian manned the wings, tracking runs diligently and keeping a narrow defensive shape that prevented Barca from flooding the central areas. For them to make errors one after another in a matter of seconds is almost astronomically improbable.

Yesterday, however, it was Willian, Chelsea's only imposing Brazilian, who marveled us.
