The defeats means Conte's side were dumped out of the champions league on Wednesday.

Antonio Conte has told Chelsea to target lifting the FA Cup and qualifying for the Champions League before the season's end.

After the match, Messi received a hug from Antonio Conte and Chelsea manager admitted the took the chance to praise the Barcelona forward for his display at Camp Nou.

"I think this question is for the coach of the national team, not for me", Conte said when asked for his thoughts. We have to continue working and try to win on Sunday as it's the only silverware we may get this season.

"Leicester is a good team".

Busquets was taken off for Andre Gomes in the 61st minute of Barca's last-16 second leg against Chelsea, which the Catalans won 3-0 to go through to the quarter-finals of Europe's elite club competition for an 11th consecutive year. Now there is the FA Cup, this is a quarter-final and if we win then we play at Wembley. "I repeat, I'll try to make the best decision because we want to try to go to the next round".

The Argentina playmaker now has 100 Champions League goals and 602 in his career, with the statistics conveying, to some extent, his ability.

Leicester have had a full week to prepare for the game, so we think the Italian will make several changed to his line-up to avoid fatigue after their midweek efforts.

Following a 1-1 draw in the first leg, the visitors fell behind after just 128 seconds as Lionel Messi shot through the legs of Thibaut Courtois from a tight angle.

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

"Now we are not playing every two days - we played against Barcelona but we have the full week to rest and recover - so I'll pick the best solution for tomorrow's game". The weakest point is between the legs for a goalkeeper.

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.
