Chelsea players were in good form in the fifth round FA Cup tie against Hull City as the Blues won the game 4-0 to progress to the last eight of the competition.

Up next for Chelsea is a Champions League tie against Barcelona in the second round of the competition.

Chelsea host the first leg at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte had a lot to say about that game.

He told the media: “To play against Barcelona is a great challenge. This type of game must give us great enthusiasm and we must be excited.

“They are one of the best team in the worlds. In one side you must be sad to play them but on the other hand you must be excited and you must try to compete with them on this level. We must have the right confidence.”

After two important wins against West Brom and Hull City, Conte charged his players not to be afraid of the Spanish giants as he said: “The last two wins were very important for us and our confidence. To win a game in the league and FA Cup. To prepare in the right way against Barcelona.

“Then we are talking about a massive game. Now we must be confident to prepare this game. It starts 0-0 and then we have to move it in the right direction.”
