Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has said a hectic schedule is stretching his squad to breaking point

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has said a hectic schedule is stretching his squad to breaking point

The defensive trio have been involved in all but a handful of Tigers games this season so their absence will be keenly felt.

And a third goal soon followed - Willian finding the bottom-right corner via the post from just outside the area after good work by Giroud again. Two of these victories came in the FA Cup.

The Blues were hungry for a fifth, with one man in particular in search of his first career hat-trick.

Their plan was to do so 'for life', but, as we all know, money talks in football, and if a big offer were to land on the Italian side's desk, they probably would have to consider it.

"To be honest, I was waiting for it", Giroud told BT Sport after the game.

When asked about the possibility of the two playing up top together, Conte replied: 'I think that, in the future, yeah.

"We lost two games at the end of a busy period". Willian is currently averaging three chances created, 2.36 shots and 1.43 ball recoveries per ninety minutes.

'We need momentum and basically everything is going in the right way.

"We could have taken the foot off the gas, but we were a lot more assertive, the players responded in a positive manner and we have 15 cup finals now".

Having done well in his brief appearances across the campaign, the 17-year-old had his best game in a Chelsea shirt in the Checkatrade Trophy semi-final defeat to Lincoln City - when he donned the captain's armband.

For the visitors, Fraizer Campbell is available at 5/1 odds at Bet365.

David Meyler did have an opportunity from the penalty spot to reduce the score, but much like the overall day, he saw that effort saved by Willy Caballero.

Adding to current woes is that, according to Adkins, they've got no less than 12 players on the injured list.

"For sure, his performance was impressive", added Conte. The game starts 0-0. There is also a slight calf problem that he is managing.

However, Tiemoue Bakayoko and David Luiz will miss the match through injury.

Or... Chelsea could lose on Friday, Conte gets sacked, Roberto Di Matteo comes in, plays Gary Cahill up front and Chelsea win the Champions League. Sebastian Larsson will also miss the trip due to suspension. But it's right to be so. Before that run, they'd drawn five in a row so should we have have any trust in them?

Pedro and Willian support the Frenchman in attack, with Ethan Ampadu and Emerson featuring in defence.
