This is the FA Cup quarterfinal.

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte had admitted that winning the 2017/18 English FA Cup title may not save him from facing the exit doors at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

Antonio Conte has declined to show Gary Cahill and Álvaro Morata a great deal of sympathy after they were omitted from their respective global squads, with the Chelsea manager making clear the only way for them to prove they deserve to go to the World Cup is by working hard for their club. We have to continue working and try to win on Sunday as it's the only silverware we may get this season. "But we played strong as a team", Messi said.

Chelsea held Barcelona to a 2-2 draw at the Nou Camp in 2012, eliminating the Champions League holders 3-2 on aggregate to clinch a place in the final.

"I'm very pleased to have the opportunity at the end of the game to give him my compliments".

"He started to play with Barcelona and for sure he will finish his career in Barcelona". Willian, who has been Chelsea's brightest performer of late, said: "Now we have to look forward". He stated: "It's annoying, but I don't think I have to hide, I have to come out, be a man, and say I made a mistake and move on".


"They have Lionel Messi and I think they were the better team even though we competed well in both games", Alonso said. "It was a pity to go out, especially after two good performances against Barcelona".

"On Sunday I will try to make the best decision because we want to go the next round".

Thibaut Courtois was beaten through his legs twice by Lionel Messi against Barca, the goalkeeper accepting he made mistakes in the tie, but Conte indicated he will not take the Belgium global out of the firing line.

Courtois was then at fault again when Messi fired home through the goalkeeper's legs once more in the 63rd minute to put FC Barcelona firmly in control.

One of the biggest fears Chelsea face in not qualifying for the Champions League is the exodus of elite players, with Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois likely to leave without Champions League football.
