"We have nothing to lose so I'd imagine we don't play as direct and maybe play more naturally with wingers and a number 10 - saying that, last time we did that we lost 3-0 to West Ham!"

The Clarets promptly levelled with their first shot on target of the match in the 64th minute, although there was a huge slice of luck involved.

Conte felt the striker's emotions were directed inwards, with just one league goal since December, and was happy with Morata's wider contribution.

The Spaniard kicked the dugout and threw his boots and shin pads to the ground after coming off the field, but has since regretted his actions.

Hughes also said his players will use the pain of last season's EFL Cup final defeat by Manchester United to spur them to success on Sunday. We showed great spirit and great enthusiasm, Burnley are having a fantastic season.

The Saints remain four points from safety and are winless in their last eight games as they head into Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley.

"You want to improve your confidence and the only way to do this is to score".

"Alvaro was angry not for the substitution but for the chances he missed within the game", added Conte. Surely not even this hapless Chelsea bunch can stuff it up against the even worse Southampton! But Conte's plan worked early on; a high press allowed Chelsea's midfield pairing of Tiemoue Bakayoko and N'Golo Kante to dominate the ball and suffocate the home side.

Chelsea will be looking to avoid an upset at any cost.

Chelsea are currently without usual left-back Marcos Alonso, who is serving a three-game suspension, and Emerson has a chance to stake a claim for a first-team role while he is out. "But I've got no problem with his angle at all".

Keeping Michy Batshuayi and rotating him with Morata and Giroud in a front-two, with Eden Hazard behind in the role Pedro played at Burnley, should have been the plan for the season.

Victor Moses starred in Chelsea's 2-1 win over Burnley away as the Nigerian forced the opponents to tap in an own goal before cancelling Burnley's strike in the second half. Johann Berg Gudmundsson burst forward before firing a shot off Ashley Barnes, diverting the ball in the opposite direction and past Courtois for an unlikely equaliser.

This sparked a perfect response from Chelsea and Moses, the marauding winger restoring the Londoners' lead five minutes later.
