Cesc Fabregas identifies two problems that have hurt Chelsea this season

Iniesta will not be made welcome at Stamford Bridge, warns Azpilicueta

Conte explained: 'We have been analysing this team for a long time. If we can get past this first phase and not put ourselves under too much pressure then I think that we can hurt them.

"We are back in a good form, with confidence before this huge game as you say against Barcelona", Pedro said at Stamford Bridge.

It remains one of the most controversial refereeing performances in recent years, and the Norwegian's officiating has been revisited by Spanish media ahead of Chelsea's round of 16 fixture with Barcelona on Tuesday night.

"This is a different opponent".

Conte believes it would be unsafe for Chelsea to focus exclusively on stopping Messi, who has never scored against the Premier League champions.

Prolific Argentina forward Messi has failed to score in eight matches against Chelsea - his worst record against any single club in football.

The pie's big day is February 9 and, although not everybody will be celebrating, we have a few deals worth checking out. Those items include everything from a medium two-topping pizza to an eight-piece chicken wing meal, and so much more .

"I hope that we maintain this tradition but we are speaking about a fantastic player", Conte said. "On the other hand we must be excited because we have a great opportunity to play a massive game against a really strong team and to show which is our level". We started one month ago and analysed this team.

"I would like to end my career [at the club] and play for at least another year".

The Italian also confirmed that Marcos Alonso will return after missing Chelsea's last two league games through injury, with the former Real Madrid academy star rested in their FA Cup victory against Hull City on Friday.

"We are talking about one of the best players in the world but, for sure, we have to work together, work with the team and not only with one player to try and stop him". If we focus on just man-marking Messi, it can be very unsafe'.

"But now yes, we are continuing to work very well and very hard".

"I don't sense there's any player who's not with the coach".
