With Chelsea out of the Champions League, all that is left for the Blues in terms of silverware is the FA Cup, and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has vowed to use his best team to play Leicester City in the FA Cup quarterfinal clash at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

However, Conte insists that he is not prioritising clinching a top four position over winning the FA Cup during this campaign.

“I think we have to try to do both,” Conte said. “To try to go to the next round and to reach the semi-final in the FA Cup it won’t be easy. Leicester is a good team. In the last game we played at home we suffered against them.

“Then to try to do our best also in the league, to find a place in the Champions League. It won’t be easy.

“Now we are not playing every three days. We played Barcelona, but we’ve had the whole week to recover and rest. For this reason I’ll pick the best solution for tomorrow’s game.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
