Antonio Conte admitted that he was delighted by Willian's performance for Chelsea FC as the Blues thrashed Hull City 4-0 to book their place in the sixth round of the FA Cup.

Giroud bagged his first goal for the club during the comfortable 4-0 FA Cup victory over Hull City on Friday night.

"Before an important game, against Barcelona, tonight I go to my house with many doubts in my mind, which is the best starting XI to start the game against Barcelona, but it's right to be so". It was great for us. So, if we're finally resting him properly to get him fully recovered and acclimated, then that's fine. We were not close enough in the first, but the second half was a totally different story. The game was very compact. "Now we have to prepare for the game against Barcelona", he said. "In England that's very hard, because anything can happen".

Although Giroud impressed with his three goal involvements, Willian was arguably the star of the show, scoring twice and catching the eye throughout in a very lively display. "But in the next two weeks we have to play massive games and we must be strong - Barcelona, United and City". This type of game must give us great enthusiasm.

The possibility of a return to the national team for Conte has been floated but Conte's agent, Federico Pastorello has played down these claims.

"I'm not thinking for one moment about the possibility to go away from this club". You have to try and compete with them at this level. Now we have the right confidence again. "I had a couple of chances in the previous game". We gifted them some positions but we knew it was going to be a tough ask.

The Italian has not been happy with Chelsea's conduct in the transfer market and the Premier League champions have also been losing patience with Conte's constant complaints over signing new players.
