Conte happy for Hazard to put team first

Conte happy for Hazard to put team first

"I think that now at Chelsea we are in a period of transition", the 47-year-old Italian boss told reporters following his side's 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday.

Mauricio Pochettino's side can now focus all of their attentions back onto the Premier League, as they still have a chance of clinching the title, but they only have six matches to overtake current league leaders Chelsea, who are four points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Chelsea, which has topped the standings for the last five months, held a 10-point advantage last month but slip-ups against Crystal Palace and Manchester United in April have cut its advantage to four points with six games to play.

Kane said, "We want to find a way to win these sorts of games".

The Belgium worldwide has bounced back with some style from his poor last season and is once again a key player in the Blues' title race and charge for the FA Cup trophy.

Hazard, Costa, Cahill and Cesc Fabregas were all recalled to the starting line-up after Conte rotated boldly at Wembley and he felt his players cast his decisions in a favourable light.

And Lloris told reporters: "It's my fifth season for Tottenham and I can see the team is enjoying fighting and competing against the best teams". Saints are solidly mid-table with very little left to fight for other than pride, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't mind playing spoilers and being the fly in Chelsea's title-charging soup. "I was a footballer and I know what happens in every single player", he said. "That's why we have to keep our chins up, because we had a good performance and then it's about details". "That's what we have got to try to do".

"It's great to know when after a week we finish the championship we have to play a final in the FA Cup".

"We lost last weekend against a great team and for the rest of the season, it is always good to have the confidence up".

Tottenham appear to have a more hard run-in, with fixtures against Palace, Arsenal, West Ham, Manchester United, Leicester and Hull.
