  • Conte keen for Cahill to play ahead of World Cup

"I think the Italy experience was very important for him and now I'm sure that he's a different player compared to the past".

"Realistic? As you know very well it won't be easy, but at the same time we must try", he said.

"I think in this season our main problem is that we are not so clinical, also today, we had the chances to kill the game".

The Nigeria worldwide has featured in 26 Premier League games for the West London club this season and has bagged three goals and assists.

Antonio Conte has been saying since the start of the season that he does not have a deep enough squad to compete on all fronts and it has led to a heavier workload for some of the most important players in his set-up.

Chelsea kept alive their slim hope of securing a top four place courtesy of man of the match, Cesc Fabregas fourth minute strike. Christensen is playing an important season, his first for Chelsea in this pressure, and now I think it's right to give an opportunity to Gary to play more. I think he's a really good, important manager. 'We have to compare Salah of four or five years ago, and not Salah now, ' he said. "These are positive things but we have to try to continue until the end to try to do our best and then at the end of the season what will happen, will happen".

Conte has hinted at rotating his back-three as the Blues enter the home stretch, but it looks unlikely that Luiz will be able to lend a hand.

Tottenham are now in fourth place in the Premier League table and two points ahead of Chelsea FC, although they have a game in hand over their London rivals.

Olivier Giroud was signed from London rivals Arsenal in January to bolster Conte's attacking options, but the Frenchman has so far managed to only net twice in the Premier League since switching allegiances.
