After thrashing Hull City 4-0, Antonio Conte feels the Chelsea players have given him something to think about before facing Barcelona.
Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Hull City in the FA Cup on Friday has given Antonio Conte selection headaches ahead of Barcelona’s Champions League visit.
Conte’s side produced an excellent display against the Championship strugglers at Stamford Bridge, Willian stealing the show thanks to a brilliant brace, as Olivier Giroud also impressed with his first goal for the club and a pair of assists.
Pedro got the other goal as Chelsea found themselves 4-0 up by half-time, despite the likes of Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante being rested.
The comfortable scoreline gave Conte the chance to bring Giroud, Cesc Fabregas and Pedro off in the second half and now he has “doubts” over who to start against Barcelona after several eye-catching performances from his players.
“For sure it was a positive night for us because we had the opportunity to rest important players, key players for us,” Conte told BT Sport.
