Beating Spurs in FA Cup has no bearing on league: Conte

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino looks dejected as Chelsea manager Antonio Conte gestures

The Blues play Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, just over 72 hours after beating Spurs in an intense and energy sapping FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

'Not only Dele, I can not guarantee nothing in life, ' said Pochettino, when asked about reports of Manchester City's interest in Tottenham's England midfielder Dele Alli. Don't think too much about the future. We all took responsibility together.

Explaining he started to feel better about himself in April previous year, Hazard also puts his improved performances down to where he plays under the Italian, which he calls "half-winger, half 10". Trust in the club.

Hazard has been with Chelsea since 2012, and will be one of their longest-serving players when John Terry leaves at the end of the season.

"This season isn't the only season both Manchester clubs have spent a lot of money".

"There's always moments for every team to, not collapse, but to drop points".

While City and United prepare for a derby at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday with Champions League qualification their priority, Chelsea can move seven points clear at the top of the Premier League with victory against Southampton on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge. To become a great or fantastic season there is only one way: "to try and win". There are a lot of games. Never, never. I don't want this and I can't accept this. That's what we have got to try to do. It's true the last week has been hard, starting on Thursday with the tragic situation with Ugo and it has been hard to manage it all.

"This win maybe gives us more confidence for the rest of the season", Hazard told the Chelsea website. "It is really important to win against a team fighting with you for the title", he said.

'The players were sad and disappointed. What a difference it makes to a team to be not involved in European football, apart from Diego Costa's regular physical set backs, Chelsea hasn't had any major injury problems over the course of this season. But, when compared to the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City, they are missing an established world-class creator.

"It happened to us in the last four games". The pair have scored seven and five goals respectively in all competitions this campaign, while contributing with four assists between them.

Conte, 46, won a hat-trick of titles in Italy and guided his country to the Euro 2016 quarter-finals where they lost on penalties to Germany. There's no reason to lose focus'. He also added that just because any team spends, it doesn't necessarily guarantee success.

Kane admitted that Tottenham's players had hoped to win the semi-final tie in Ehiogu's honour but, after yesterday morning's defeat, their ambitions would now switch to the Premier League. 'Now we are second fighting with the big sides with a completely different project.

"We have an wonderful dressing room with players who have won a lot but are still hungry".
