Chelsea boss Antonio Conte hints at little rotation for FA Cup

"As Barcelona, our objective is to win all three competitions, Champions League included", Amor said.

Antonio Conte has set his sights on winning the FA Cup and qualifying for the Champions League as Chelsea bid to bounce back from their disappointment in Barcelona.

"You can't say we've had much luck: we've drawn the most hard team, the best team in the world. I don't know, we can only look forward, to try and fight for a spot in the Champions League and win the FA Cup".

"We have to try to do both".

Rio Ferdinand pointed the finger at Thibaut Courtois after the Belgian goalkeeper endured a night to forget during Chelsea FC's 3-0 Champions League defeat by Barcelona on Wednesday night.

After drawing the first-leg, at Stamford Bridge, 1-1, Barcelona were in pole position to gain revenge for the London side knocking them out, at the semi-final stage in 2012.

With dreams of European glory in tatters, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur turn their attention to the FA Cup quarterfinals this weekend, clinging to their last chance of silverware this season. "I am not seeking victories, I continue my work aware that I am doing good work".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said his side needed a ideal display to progress but they started disastrously at a packed Nou Camp when Luis Suarez teed up Messi, who squeezed a low strike through the legs of Courtois from a tight angle. It's my weakest point between my legs.

Chelsea continued to push for an away goal, with wingers Willian and Eden Hazard probing the hosts' defence, but Messi stamped his class on the tie in the second-half with yet another between-the-legs finish past Thibaut Courtois to snuff out any hopes the Blues might have had.

He added: "I think we have to try to do both".

"I think every trophy is important for us", the Italian said.

"My only worry is to have the players in the best form for Chelsea, then it's up to the national team coach to make the best decision for their country".

"Now we have to face another competition and for this reason we have to have great confidence and trust in our strength to try to move on".
