Conte: Chelsea don't believe they can win title

Chelsea player ratings: Who impressed as Blues demolished Stoke?

The Premier League club with fewer injury woes than Chelsea this season revealed

The central defender is expected to be fit for Chelsea's game against Norwich in the FA Cup third round next weekend.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte feels it was important his team got the three Premier League points against Stoke City to maintain their impressive run as he prepares to face Arsenal on Wednesday. "To be able to do this on your first chance, I will remember this year forever".

"And for next year, we are still in four competitions".

Conte, who himself rested Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko, believes rotation is inevitable during the busy winter period.

Conte has spent much of the season grumbling about his squad's lack of depth after Chelsea failed to land his top targets in the summer.


The Blues dominated from the start in spite of resting Belgian star Hazard ahead of next week's clash at Arsenal.

Hughes, already without his first-choice defence as Ryan Shawcross and Bruno Martins Indi were injured and Chelsea loanee Kurt Zouma ruled out, opted to rest Joe Allen, Xherdan Shaqiri and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

"Today, we finished a great year for us - for the club, for the fans, for the players, for me". The win was then put beyond any doubt when Pedro collected Willian's lay off from about 20-yards before firing across goal in similar fashion to his goal against Stoke earlier in the season. "I am the coach and I look after the things on the pitch, if the club can help us, it would be okay, but if they can't it will be okay as well". "I have to give the players a bit of rest".

"The decisions weren't easy, but they were decisions I was prepared to make".
