Conte includes youngsters in Chelsea squad

Conte includes youngsters in Chelsea squad

On the importance of having such options available to him, Conte continued: 'Yeah for sure, in this moment it's important to have all your players available. This has clear similarities to the Conte situation right now.

The FA Cup is the world's oldest football competition (pre-dating even the Football League by 18 years) so, it goes without saying that every fan has fond memories of this tournament.

Conte has made it clear before he thinks that the Hull tie could well boost Chelsea and their players - and put them in the position to beat Barcelona, and he mentioned the other games that come after said FA Cup tie - and made it clear Barcelona are not the be all and end all of the season. "The competition is good for the team". We're in the fifth round here - it'll be a tough game for us but we want to make it as tough as possible for Chelsea, too'. We'll be up against it defensively because we're going up against a very good side.

These Chelsea lads are so unprofessional. Manager Antonio Conte has been eager to include the Wales global, 17, whenever possible, and he could be given another chance to impress and give the club hierarchy the impression that their youth development strategy is actually working.

He said: "In the Carabao Cup and also FA Cup, I gave them the chance to play".


'Don't forget we are playing with a system from last season and in the case [I play with two strikers] it means Hazard, Pedro and Willian are out'.

"With Ampadu it is not hard to predict a brilliant future for this player and it is the same for Odoi".

There was a disruption during the press conference when Italian journalists, who had pranked Jose Mourinho into signing a Manchester United shirt with Antonio Conte on the back, presented the jersey to Conte. "Long live friendship, shall I leave it to you?" one of the journalists asked.

Conte readily indulged talk of Chelsea sacking him earlier this month, just over half a season after leading the team to the top-flight title, as he took to publicly criticising the club's transfer dealings and suffered consecutive defeats against Bournemouth and Watford. "Keep it, you will give it to me later".
