Conte says he is not prioritising the Premier League or FA Cup

Mark Lawrenson is tipping Leicester City to ease to a slender win against Chelsea FC in the FA Cup quarter-final at the King Power Stadium on Sunday evening.

But Conte says they must receive the plaudits and any flak as a collective.

Having been eliminated from the Champions League by Barcelona during the mid-week, the pressure will be on Antonio Conte's side to respond, with the FA Cup the only silverware the club can now aim for. I think like last season, when we won the title and reached the final of the FA Cup, it's always the same: "we must be ready to share the responsibility with the club, the players, me and my staff". "This must be very clear".

Antonio Conte will not prioritise either the FA Cup or a top-four finish in the Premier League in the final weeks of the season, saying Chelsea have an obligation to fight for both targets.

The Blues are in fifth place in the Premier League table but four points adrift of Liverpool FC, who occupy the final Champions League spot.

"We know about Vardy and his characteristic, he is a clever player and is good to attack the space and find the right time to do this". It won't be easy because Leicester is a good team.

England defender Gary Cahill and Spain striker Alvaro Morata have found themselves out of the team of late and were left out of their respective national teams for this month's friendlies, putting further doubts over their chances of making the World Cup in summer. "We must have great confidence to trust in our strength and to try to move on".

"This question is for the coach of the national team, not for me".
