Antonio Conte admits he will be sacked at Chelsea

Antonio Conte admits he will be sacked at Chelsea

This is the FA Cup quarter-final.

Indeed, Chelsea have gone on to win the competition on each of the last three occasions they've met Leicester in the FA Cup (1997, 2000 and 2012).

I think for the result of our team, like last season when we won the title and reached the FA Cup final, it's always the same.

The Champions League exit to Barcelona on Wednesday means Chelsea's final trophy chance this term is the FA Cup, which resumes with Sunday's quarter-final at Leicester.

"Don't forget that two years ago, Chelsea finished 10th with many players of this season, and they made a decision to continue to play for this club".

The Blues are in fifth place in the Premier League table but four points adrift of Liverpool FC, who occupy the final Champions League spot.

Antonio Conte has declined to show Gary Cahill and Álvaro Morata a great deal of sympathy after they were omitted from their respective worldwide squads, with the Chelsea manager making clear the only way for them to prove they deserve to go to the World Cup is by working hard for their club. "We must be ready to share the responsibility with the club, with the players, with me and my staff".

Mark Chapman will present the BBC One coverage from the DW Stadium as Wigan go in search of a fourth Premier League scalp having already beaten Bournemouth, West Ham and Manchester City. In the last game we played at home [in the Premier League] we suffered against them.

Puel acknowledges the tie is important for his side, but he also hopes there will be bigger games to come this season for his players. We try to do our best in every competition.

"Then to try to do our best also in the league, to find a place in the Champions League". I think the work of a coach must be judged not on victories, but on the improvement of the squad and the current value of the squad. "If I have to look at the problems of the national teams, it's not the right time for me".
