Conte: FA Cup much more difficult for Chelsea this season

22 Abril 2018, 04:24 | Cornelio Vivanco

But Conte said his record could not be compared to the Portuguese tactician's, given Mourinho was first in charge of Chelsea beginning in 2004.

Hughes says his acrobatic equaliser against Oldham in the last minute of extra time is one of the three goals that people still mention to him regularly (along with his winner against Barcelona in the 1991 European Cup Winners' Cup final and a preposterous volley he struck for Wales against Spain in 1985) and he remembers how it helped reinvigorate United's season at a time when they appeared to be waning.

Morata got over his 13 game goal drought with two goals in two games recently, but Sutton thinks that Giroud's timely performances could see him start as the main striker for the remainder of the season.

As Graeme Le Saux points out in his fascinating FA Cup Betting Preview, Chelsea have been poor this calendar year but the FA Cup remains their only hope of salvaging something from a disappointing campaign, and they are a far better team than Southampton, even if they have slipped from the heights of last year.

"The most important thing is to show in every game that you have the right spirit because our fans deserve this".

"Obviously Manchester City have done very well this season to be champions and that's why (the title race is) over for this year". Sat in 18th place and with just one Premier League win since November, it was puzzling to see Saints' lack of urgency as the game ended 0-0.

"Sometimes I am good, sometimes I am not so good". The first goal that they scored with Alexis Sanchez was handball.

Chelsea are currently occupying fifth position on the EPL standings with 63 points after 34 games, and they are five points behind fourth placed Tottenham. "But we are talking about a good manager", Conte said. While it's great to end the season with a trophy, it wouldn't be much of a consolation if the team goes down to the Championship.

Yet, having replaced the duo with young defenders Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, it is there where Conte's legacy will be judged. At that moment we were stronger than them. A defence cannot allow Willian to take possession at the top of the box unopposed. He denied earlier iterations of strikers the chance to play together, instead persisting with the 3-4-3 or using Eden Hazard as a shadow striker. It's not my task to judge the season. This season it will be more difficult. That is my aim now.

Olivier Giroud has paid tribute to Arsene Wenger. In terms of who is the main man?

"I don't think that has any effect on the players". Not a simple achievement. "I think it is an incredible achievement. You start the game and you know in your heart and soul that it will be very difficult for your opponent to beat you".
