Antonio Conte looks to FA Cup after Chelsea's exit from Europe

Raul Meireles and Fernando Torres celebrate for Chelsea against Leicester in 2012

Davide Zappacosta has featured heavily in the FA Cup this season so he could replace Victor Moses in the right wing-back position but Marcos Alonso should keep his place ahead of Emerson Palmeiri on the opposite flank.

While this trophy might not be held in high regard outside of the United Kingdom, it's nevertheless something for the Stamford Bridge trophy cabinet and should be taken seriously.

To avoid losing our last hope of silverware, Chelsea should therefore resort to a strong, competitive eleven for Sunday's clash, with rotation kept to a minimum.

Danny Drinkwater and Tiemoue Bakayoko are pushing for recalls but I think Conte may go with the Frenchman alongside Kante with Drinkwater among the subs against his former club.

"I just have a feeling that they will absolutely fly at Chelsea and we know they have got the quality to beat them".

No room for errors here, lads.

But just as he has done before each previous round, Pochettino talked down the importance of winning the trophy, saying his 2000 and 2006 Copa del Rey wins with Espanyol changed nothing for him or the Spanish club. "On Sunday I'll try to make the best decision, because we want to try to go to the next round", Conte was quoted by ESPN. Every single game will play a part in us reaching those targets.

We have to try to do both.

They also point to the absence of any regulations on micro-plastics and of the lack of standardized methods of testing for them. That's about twice the level of contamination discovered in the group's earlier study on plastic contamination in tap water .

Browns to trade Kizer to Green Bay
Although both prospects are very talented, a team must take a quarterback with the 1st pick in a draft class like this. Thomas, who played more than 10,000 straight snaps before tearing his left triceps last season, is mulling retirement.

Already, Chelsea can not retain their Premier League title this season, and they have also crashed in the Champions League.

"To try to reach the semi-final in the FA Cup it won't be easy".

The Foxes do have a glimmer of hope with the tie taking place at home, and Chelsea have not been in the best form of late - winning only two of their last six games in all competitions - while their latest defeat came against Barcelona in the last-16 of the Champions League. It is a decisive game, more important I don't know.

Conte says Chelsea must receive the plaudits and any flak as a collective.

"If you remember last season we won the title, and then you can see our transfer market".

"The culture of winning is so important but to create that culture, you need to work a lot and take many steps to arrive there".

"You need luck. It's like in Capital One, Copa del Rey, FA Cup".
