Conte to name strongest Chelsea side for Leicester FA Cup tie

The Argentinian scored twice against Chelsea at the Nou Camp in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 fixture to help his side attain a 3-0 victory against the Antonio Conte's side.

In the post-match coverage on BT Sport, the former Manchester United captain praised Messi's vision on the ball: "I keep saying this about the top players, and him more than nearly anyone that he plays with pure clarity when he's playing". Even in conceding these goals, if we had scored the chance we had [we might have gotten back into the tie].

In the first leg at Stamford Bridge, he turned up one of his best performances of the season but in the second leg on Wednesday, he was inspiring and played without conviction.

Willian has previously admitted that the opportunity to join Barcelona or Real Madrid would be "a dream" for any player, but has countered those comments by expressing a desire to spend "more years" at Chelsea.

Antonio Conte's side were dumped out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage as Barcelona forward Lionel Messi starred on the night.

'We are talking about an extraordinary player, the best in the world'. "I'm happy with how it all happened".

"Every trophy is important for us".

"That's hard no? It is the only trophy we have left", he added.

Asked to explain why he was prepared to talk so soon given most players would opt to avoid the limelight in that situation, he added: "I don't want to hide my face behind the fact I made a mistake". They gave everything and we have to continue in this way, with this will to fight and desire to fight together.

"To try to reach the semi-final in the FA Cup it won't be easy".

Victor Moses has had a very inconsistent season with Chelsea, dominating the right wing, defending tightly and turning up in attack with verve in one game to looking lost in another. "But that's football sometimes and we just have to get our heads up and work again".

Chelsea FC have now won four of their 17 games in the calendar year so far to prompt questions about Conte's long-term future at the west London club despite winning the Premier League last term.
