'For Chelsea it is the same, the last opportunity to win something this season.

While this trophy might not be held in high regard outside of the United Kingdom, it's nevertheless something for the Stamford Bridge trophy cabinet and should be taken seriously.

Chelsea were finalists past year, losing to Arsenal, and last lifted the trophy in 2012, defeating Leicester at this stage of the competition en route.

The WAGNH community's preferred line-up more or less mirrors the one above with the exceptions of Rüdiger and Drinkwater being preferred over Cahill (60%) and Bakayoko (47%).

'I think for us it is not just a normal game also.

Conte was quoted to have said by Telegraph UK.

Spurs have been one of the best teams in England under Pochettino over recent seasons but have yet to back that up with honours. In the last game we played at home we suffered against them (drawing 0-0).

Davidson could've overcome the tough shooting night from the three-point line if Grady wasn't 3-8 in the lane. We slowed down their scoring in the paint and we out-rebounded them so I think that helped us win this game".

'We need to give a collective response against this team.

The competition represents Chelsea's final trophy chance following their Champions League exit at Barcelona on Wednesday.

"Every trophy is important for us", he said. I don't mean that the team that wins the FA Cup or the Copa del Rey doesn't deserve to win it, but sometimes you win because the draw is kind to you. "On Sunday, I'll try to make the best decision, because we want to try to go to the next round". I don't know. I think this is not a question for me.

"We must be ready to share the responsibility with the club, the players and with me and my staff".

The Foxes, who spent four days of warm weather training in Spain this week, could be unchanged from last weekend's 4-1 win at West Brom. Also in this season we are doing a fantastic job, a great job.

And Conte says he could have done no more given what he sees as the Premier League champions' limited spending.

The FA Cup has taken on particular importance for the Italian given his side also languish 25 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League and, with eight games remaining, stand no chance of retaining their status as champions. Last season we were very good to reach the final - to play a semi-final against United, the semi-final against Tottenham, and the final against Arsenal. Vicente Iborra, though, has emerged from the dark to put an end to the crisis in the middle of the park, and the team is playing fearless, free-flowing football once again.
