Date published: Friday 16th March 2018 2:08

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte still has his sights firmly fixed on two targets this season following the club’s Champions League exit at the hands of Barcelona.

The Blues, currently fifth in the Premier League standings, visit Leicester on Sunday in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

“I think every trophy is important for us,” the Italian said at his press conference. “We started the season to try to fight until the end for every competition.

“In the Carabao Cup we reached the semi-final, in Champions League the last 16. This is the FA Cup quarter-final. If we win, we can play another semi-final at Wembley. We try to do our best in every competition. This must be our target.”

Asked whether he was more focused on securing a top-four spot or lifting the FA Cup, Conte replied: “I think we have to try to do both. To try to go to the next round and to reach the semi-final in the FA Cup it won’t be easy.

“Leicester is a good team. In the last game we played at home, we suffered against them. Then to try to do our best also in the league, to find a place in the Champions League. It won’t be easy.”
