"For this reason I'll pick the best solution for Sunday's game", he said.

After their disappointing exit in the UEFA Champions League to Barcelona, Chelsea's attention now shifts to the FA Cup where they will face Leicester in the last eight. Let us know in the comments section below.

"I played against Messi a lot of time, I have already conceded goals like that before The weakest point is between the legs or a goalkeeper, it is annoying, I can not hide inside, I have to be a man and come out. It was unlucky on our side, but I think mostly it was our individual mistakes that cost us". His team, which had been averaging 61 to 63% ball retention against their opponents at domestic and continental level, had several spells in our meeting last night where they had to endure the advances of a Chelsea team who created loads of chances with high and effective pressing.

Leicester stand in their way in Sunday's quarter-final.

"The special plans is to try to defend well", he told reporters. "We started the season wanting to fight to the end for every competition and in the EFL Cup we reached the semi-finals, Champions League we reached the last 16, now there is the FA Cup and it is important".

Meanwhile, Messi was quick to praise his team-mates despite having a decisive say in Barca's triumph.

"It was a really tough game". "Scoring so early meant we could control the game, but we didn't feel we had sentenced the tie until we got our third goal".

"It won't be easy, Leicester are a good team, we suffered when we played at home against them [a 0-0 draw in January], but we must also do our best in the Premier League and try to get into the Champions League, but it won't be easy". He then teed up Ousmane Dembele to double Barca's lead in the second leg of the last 16 clash before registering a century of Champions League goals on his 123rd appearance to complete a 3-0 victory.

It was always going to be a hard task for Chelsea considering their recent form in the Premier League and losing an early goal didn't help.

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has been named the Most Valuable Player in matches played in the Champions League this week.
