Conte accepts Chelsea's UCL hopes fading fast

  • Cavani equalled Ibrahimovic’s scoring record this season

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has defended his decision to start with forward, Eden Hazard on the bench during the Blues' 1-1 draw with Huddersfield in Wednesday's Premier League clash.

Chelsea all but squandered any chance they had of making the Champions League next season as they were held to a dismal 1-1 draw with lowly Huddersfield, who secured their safety at Stamford Bridge.

But former Blues fullback Mario Melchiot believes Conte is sending the wrong signals, telling talkSPORT: "If you don't play him you are nearly giving him an answer like: 'If I'm not playing why would I want to stay?'" Football is simple. If you want to win, you have to score one goal more than your opponent.

Afterwards, Conte said: "The only hope and intention was to keep our hopes alive and win the game".


"Alvaro Morata has also been disappointing for Chelsea, but we have had glimpses of his talent at different times in the campaign", Murphy told the London Evening Standard. We played an intense game, with great desire to get three points. "To make rotation, it means playing with players like [Alvaro] Morata, Willian and [Andreas] Christensen, players who usually are in the lineup from the start".

"We weren't able to win the game, this is football".

"It's stupid if we think rotation was a problem".

If Chelsea's half-hearted lap of honour gave clues to the club's awful season, they were also offered on the future of their manager and most expensive defender ever. We spent a lot of energy against Liverpool. "But congratulations to Huddersfield, the players and the manager and the club, for them".
