That leaves the FA Cup as Chelsea's last chance to win a trophy this season and the Blues resume that mission on Sunday when they travel to Leicester in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, the Blues have to move on from the defeat at Barcelona and concentrate on the upcoming FA Cup quarterfinals clash against Leicester City on Sunday.

And when quizzed on whether he would rather lift the famous trophy or finish in the top four, the Italian made it clear the cup is just as high on his priorities.

"We have to try to do both", he said. "We have FA Cup and Premier League to fight for". "We have to go for it 200 per cent".

"Last season we were very good to reach the final at Wembley". To try to go to the next round and to reach the semi-final in the FA Cup it won't be easy. Every competition is important for us. He said: I don't think we deserved to be out but obviously individual mistakes cost us in both legs, ' With the first goal I didn't expect Messi to shoot from there, I was too late to close my legs, so a mistake on my part.

Andres Iniesta returned from a hamstring injury to start for Barcelona but the 33-year-old could leave the Nou Camp at the end of the season. We don't have rules for the [different] competitions. Marcos Alonso hit the post and Olivier Giroud was unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty for a tangle with Gerard Pique as Chelsea tried to launch a comeback, before Messi killed the tie with his 100th Champions League goal.

This incident was raised in the ongoing sessions in both Uttar Pradesh Assembly and in Lok Sabha by the opposition parties. Sporting the "brand SP" red cap, Akhilesh Yadav merely waved at the waiting media on his return and said nothing.

And Conte insists he will field his strongest possible side against the Foxes.

"There have been a lot of positives in the two legs against Barcelona and we have to show the same desire in the next games and make sure that we win every game".

Whether that starting XI includes Thibaut Courtois remains to be seen.

Asked what were his words to the Argentine, Conte replied: "When you have the opportunity to make a great compliment to Messi, I think it's right".

"They want to go to the next round to try to write the history of this competition".
