Rampant Chelsea Ease Into FA Cup Fifth Round


And back-up goalkeeper Begovic, who is wanted by Bournemouth, is keen to move on ahead of Tuesday's transfer deadline.

Nathan Ake says he is hopeful of winning a regular first-team place at Chelsea as Antonio Conte has told him that "age doesn't matter" when it comes to picking his side. It would be a waste not to play and show people what I can do.'Chelsea have been strongly linked with Celtic's Craig Gordon as a possible replacement for Begovic.

"I repeat, I have a great respect for every player".

"I hope the same thought is in the mind of my players".

"I'm pleased for Ivan to score a goal and it's important to evaluate a lot of things", Conte said.

Chelsea have now won 10 successive home games but Pedro and Cesar Azipilicueta were the only likely members of the Blues starting side at Anfield that featured against fellow west London club Brentford. Conte admitted after that emphatic FA Cup fourth round victory that, while he would be pleased if the veteran Serbian worldwide chose to stay put, he "must make the best decision for him and his family".

It's pretty much guaranteed that Ivanovic will not be a Chelsea player come Wednesday morning but it's hard to predict his destination. I'm very happy to have him to stay in the squad.

Midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been relegated from starter to impact substitute, while former defensive stalwarts John Terry and Ivanovic have hardly been seen. Josh McEachran returned with the Bees as the English prospect who should have made it at Chelsea and Conte is using the FA Cup to ensure the same mistakes are not repeated again, with Loftus-Cheek and Chalobah showing they are ready for further first-team action. "Very unusual for it to finish after our game, the transfer window, with a tough game against Liverpool".

"I have spoken with the boss - we are quite open about it, he knows I am desperate to play, and that's all it is really", he is quoted saying by the Mirror. "We must wait over these next three days and we will see".
