Conte defends players after Roy Keane comments

We are also in the Champions League, it's not easy to win the Champions League but we will go for everything.

The former Manchester United midfielder is clearly alluding to when Jose Mourinho won the league with The Blues, then during the next season, it was clear that the Portuguese man had lost the dressing room, which led to his sacking.

After Keane labelled the Blues stars "unprofessional" and suggested they had "downed tools under different managers", Conte took exception, although he stopped short of calling out the ITV pundit.

Conte had already spoken of plans to rotate his team ahead of a demanding schedule in which they next play Barcelona, Manchester United and Manchester City when the comedian from Italia 1 satire Le Iene rose from his seat. "In this moment, at this moment, in every moment, it's very important to have your players, all your players available".

"In every training session I see great commitment and great behaviour".

Considering that Chelsea are experiencing something of a crisis in front of goal at the moment, in part due to the poor form of Alvaro Morata, Chelsea were a good choice for Giroud and he will likely get regular opportunities under Antonio Conte. In this aspect I'm very happy.

'To have two No.9s, Morata and Giroud, to have two options is very important for us. "For this reason, I think".

"We have three months to play until the end of the season and we have to give everything to reach our targets... the target has to be to win trophies". "For a lot of time [this season], we tried to play with Hazard as a No. 9". During the game it can happen. "He is very strong and powerful and he can help us for the rest of the season". "In this case, in this system, it would Hazard, Pedro and Willian are out".

Ross Barkley (hamstring) will miss Hull's visit to west London, while David Luiz and Tiemoue Bakayoko have been unable to overcome knocks in time to feature.
