Conte tells Chelsea to accept share of the blame

Leicester will host Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday afternoon

Chelsea will be looking to book their place in the semi finals of the FA Cup when they take on Leicester City at the King Power on Sunday afternoon.

Their only hope of winning a title this season is now in the FA Cup where they will face former Champions Leicester City on Sunday, March 18.

Antonio Conte has told his Chelsea players they must share the responsibility for an at-times tumultuous season.

The highlights show on Saturday will be presented by Dan Walker who will be joined by three-time FA Cup victor Martin Keown and former Manchester City keeper Shay Given.

After Tuesday's disappointing result, a scenario has unfolded that many of us dreaded back in January: Chelsea no longer have a chance of acquiring a major piece of silverware this season and are even struggling to get into the Premier League's top four for next season's Champions League.

"Do the players need to take responsibility?" The players wait for these games with desire and without pressure because this team is favourite, but we have good attributes also and we can cause them problems.




Chelsea boss Antonio Conte spoke about a number of issues at a media conference ahead of the game against Leicester.

"We have to try to win this competition".

"For Chelsea it is the same, the last opportunity to win something this season".

"I think this is a team that can grow in terms of quality and experience". Many players, they were here, when they finished 10th. "I'm very satisfied for my job, for the work we're doing".

"When you are at Espanyol, you need the draw to help you and the draw makes you play a team that is maybe focusing on the Champions League". "We have to speak about the club, about the players, and to use "we", not 'I.' [The FA Cup] is an important trophy and we want to fight until the end but as you know, only one team wins this trophy".

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. This is the FA Cup quarterfinal.
