Chelsea must be ready to suffer at Barcelona, says Conte

  • Champions League last 16 Wednesday Preview – Second legs

"It's important to understand that we must be prepared to suffer, if we play with Hazard as number nine, or if we play with Giroud or Morata as number nine and Hazard as number 10", Conte told Chelsea TV.

The Blues will take on Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash at Camp Nou on Wednesday night. "We are playing against one of the best teams in the world so we must pay great attention, having the same focus, the same attention as the first leg against Barcelona". We played a really great game.

"But we have to score a goal and so we have to go for it".

The Parisian outfit's project has always been to win the Champions League title, having largely dominated Ligue 1 since the Qatari takeover in 2011. Chelsea will face a Crystal Palace side that couldn't have been more motivated in their game with Manchester United last Monday night, yet squandered a 2-0 lead to eventually lose 3-2 with Nemanja Matic firing in the victor right at the death.

He also played up front against Barca, but was deployed in his more familiar role roaming from the left flank here. And then, in the next game, I didn't play. This is what I want from us now.

Kenya president, opposition leader pledge reconciliation
A statement signed by Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula stated that they were not part of the meeting. Mr Odinga said it was "time to resolve our differences". "Elections come and go, but Kenya remains", Kenyatta said.

"We have to go at speed with them", Conte states during his pre-match press conference at Cobham on Friday. "But the commitment of all my players was good".

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte hits back at pundits who criticised his tactics in defeat to Manchester City last Sunday.

The Blues lost back-to-back games against Manchester United and Manchester City and now sit in fifth position, five points behind fourth placed Tottenham Hotspur. "In this case I think he could have avoided the yellow card". "If we want to fight for a place in the Champions League, now it will be very important not to drop points". I trust a lot in all my players.

Defender James Tomkins, who cleared a Giroud effort off the line, bemoaned a strike from Alexander Sorloth which was disallowed late on by referee Anthony Taylor and came before Patrick van Aanholt netted what proved merely a consolation against his former club.

They reached half-time two goals up through Willian and a Martin Kelly own goal and with the crowd anticipating not much more than a few early substitutions to rest key personnel.
