Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said he hopes to make up for his side's FA Cup final loss at Wembley last season by lifting the trophy in May.

It was his first full game this year and Hughes said his performance, despite missing from the spot, in the 2-0 win "showed enough" and "when he is properly match fit, he can be a real threat". "I have never won it and it is a very good target for me". "Don't forget, in the last game at home [in the Premier League] we suffered a lot against Leicester".

However, Conte has warned his side that they must not take their opponents lightly when they face the Saints for a place in the FA Cup final for the second season running.

Alvaro Morata, who has struggled badly for form in 2018, opened the scoring for Chelsea in the quarter-final tie with his fine 42nd-minute strike against Leicester - his first goal since Boxing Day.

He added: "The fact we played our home games there this season you would think would be a benefit for us but it is the FA Cup semi-final so it will be hard no matter what". "It was harsh to concede just before half-time, but we came back with more calm and more quality".

Top Seeds Fall, Loyola Rolls In NCAA Tourney — Madness
So the games in Atlanta will now be headlined by 5-seed Kentucky (26-10). "But we're gonna have to bust her bracket on this one". It was Loyola's first NCAA Tournament win since 1985.The Ramblers' next game was March 17 against the University of Tennessee .

That was their first success in the competition with Chelsea, now leading their northern rivals by a point in the Women's Super League, claiming their maiden win in 2015.

Spurs reached their 21st FA Cup semifinal with a 3-0 win at Swansea on Saturday and Dier's teammate Jan Vertongen has said playing at Wembley will "definitely help" their quest for a first trophy since 2008.

But midfielder Nemanja Matic said that the Red Devils can not consider their season to be a successful one even if they win the Cup.

Morata's assuredness as he clipped the ball beyond the advancing Kasper Schmeichel in the 42nd minute was unbefitting of a striker who had gone 13 games without a goal. The Blues have only 52 goals to show for the season so far - three fewer than Arsenal, six below Manchester United's total, and seven fewer than Spurs - while their goal difference is half as good as it was last season.

Premier league champions, Chelsea, defeated Leicester City in their quarterfinals to proceed to the semis.
