Chelsea were drawn to play Southampton in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has dismissed the idea that Southampton will be easy FA Cup semi-final opponents for Chelsea.
“When you arrive at this point of the tournament it’s very difficult to consider an easy game,” Conte said.
“Don’t forget Man City were eliminated against Wigan.
“We must be ready to fight to try to reach the final at Wembley for the second time in a row. It will be very important for us, but we must know Southampton will have the same idea.
“We want to give the best satisfaction to our fans who pushed us a lot today. I want to say thanks to them.”
