Chelsea's forgotten man all smiles with Diego Costa in training at Cobham

Shifting attention back onto his club's fifth-round FA cup tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Conte said: "I like to win every competition in every season".

"I don't know his future", Conte said.

"I think this is his will (to leave)", Conte added.

The Premier League leaders by eight points are seeking to reach the FA Cup quarter-final for the 11th time in 16 seasons.

"But if you ask me, for sure - we must have this winning mentality". "I wish for him and his family the best". When you are Chelsea's coach or you are a Chelsea player, you must have this ambition to try to win every competition that you play.

Conte said: "A lot of young players are in my squad now, and it's important to have this link with the first team and the academy and exploit work of academy".

"In the league there are six teams who can fight until the end to win the title".

Chelsea are in a good position to focus on the Premier League-FA Cup double, given that they will largely continue to play only on weekends for the rest of the season.

"Tomorrow the game won't be easy".

Helder Costa scored in the third round against Stoke, then provided assists for both goals vs Liverpool in Round 4. "I hope in the future to absorb many players from our academy".

"Marcos Alonso needs a bit of rest, and with David Luiz we have an opportunity to give him a full week to recover well".

During that game, Jack Price suffered concussion but the Express and Star believe that he is fit enough to return for tomorrow's clash.

Marcos Alonso has also been carrying an ankle injury in recent weeks so the Chelsea boss has also confirmed the Spanish full-back will be given a breather this weekend.

'All the players are in good form and my only problem is to make the best choices for the game, ' the Italian explained.
