Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: Barcelona clash all about our character

12 March 2018

The fact that the continuity of Antonio Conte is in doubt due to Chelsea's bad performance in the Premier League has left David Luiz rethinking his future, after he has already missed nine rounds of the Premier League due to new discomfort in his knee since February 5.

The Blues played out a 1-1 draw with the Spanish side in the first leg at Stamford Bridge.

"We had to show a lot of determination", Cahill said with regard to the game. We need three points and we know very well that we are playing against a good team with talented players. "We are sure of that and have to play another good game on Wednesday".

"It won't be easy. We have to find the right plan to face this game". "We have to go at speed with them", Conte states during his pre-match press conference at Cobham on Friday.

"When you play in the Champions League or FA Cup, experience is very important".

Hazard may well be the most talented player ever to pull on a Chelsea shirt, he's certainly our best player at the time of writing.

However, Wright says the Blues boss doesn't care about what Chelsea fans think of his tactics and decisions.

"We have to play three games in only seven days in three different competitions and for this reason I thought that today the best choice was to start with Giroud up front".

The introduction of Wilfried Zaha after six games out with a knee injury boosted Crystal Palace in the second half but by the time he set up Patrick van Aanholt for a 90th-minute consolation goal, there was no way back for the Eagles. We won 3-1. After the game, there was an global break. "We have put ourselves in a difficult situation, and we have to work hard to get ourselves out of it".

But Hodgson dismissed suggestions that he could have let Zaha start the game.

"In every game I have to decide the starting XI and not the players, because the players are the players and the manager is the manager". "We've had defeats against top teams but haven't discredited ourselves".

He was the leader of the team on and off the pitch, but it had to end at some point and he is now helping Villa challenge for the promotion spots as they currently sit in third place.
