Antonio Conte makes shock Juventus admission ahead of Barcelona clash

  • Busquets v Fabregas and other key battles that could decide Barcelona v Chelsea

The Blues are level at 1-1 following a tight first-leg, which saw a mistake from Andreas Christensen allow Lionel Messi to cancel out Willian's opener easily despite an otherwise sound performance from the Premier League champions.

"We have lost a lot of old players with great experience".

Conte was forced to defend his tactical approach amid widespread criticism after the match, but the Italian is adamant that he will continue to vary his attacking set-up as the situation requires, while also reaffirming his trust Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud. We have to improve in personality, especially when there is a lot of pressure from our opponent.

The Belgian has played a starring role in two Premier League title triumphs since his arrival at the club back in the summer of 2012, firmly etching his name into the Chelsea hall of fame. "He's playing in a fantastic way but, I want to underline, not only with the ball - also without the ball". I like to talk with the players face to face, or in meetings with all the players. But the tactics were the same against Barcelona and, against Barcelona, I didn't [hear] anyone complaining.

"On Friday, if you remember, it was very cold".


Such a stat indicates the Brazilian is confident enough to take the game to Barcelona and try to put them on the back foot.

It was the visitor's first away win in seven games and the result brought about a slump in form for the Blues.

'I'm trying to jump but it's not easy to win the duels against Nicolas Otamendi and Aymeric Laporte. I was on the bench against Piacenza. I started to think for the team. This is a amusing story.

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. I wished him the best and for his family. My decisions are always for the best of the team. This team has not got many players with great experience. But he insisted the tactics were the same as against Barcelona, when Chelsea drew 1-1.
