Antonio Conte Conte sees Chelsea selection headache ahead of Barcelona clash Ryan Benson 07:14 2/17/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Getty Images Antonio Conte Chelsea v Barcelona Chelsea v Hull City Hull City Chelsea FA Cup Barcelona UEFA Champions League After thrashing Hull City 4-0 in Friday’s FA Cup clash, the Blues boss says he will find it tough to pick a team for their Champions League game 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.AdChoices广告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.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player 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 reporters.”But at the same time I saw players in good form. To have a lot of doubts before the Barcelona game is important, because I have different options. Now we have three days to decide on them.”While Hazard and Kante will be fit to face Ernesto Valverde’s men, there were concerns over the injured Marcos Alonso and Tiemoue Bakayoko.“Yes, Alonso will be fit,” Conte said when asked about the pair’s availability. “I don’t think Bakayoko [can play], but Alonso is ready to play.”The 3-0 win over West Brom at the weekend saw Chelsea put consecutive defeats past them and Friday’s victory will have further improved their morale.But Conte has urged his players not to lose focus again, with games against Barcelona, Manchester United and Manchester City on the horizon.”I think we lost two bad games, especially against Watford,” Conte added. “But we played a good game at the end of a busy period.”Now I think again we have confidence, but at the same time, the next two weeks we have to play massive games and we need to be strong.”We need to face the games against Barca, United, City and Crystal Palace in the right way.”
MONTREAL – The death of a 12-year-old girl after she was struck by a hockey puck has prompted a Quebec coroner to ask the province to study the possibility of installing protective nets in all arenas.The accident occurred April 1, 2017, while Annie Alaku-Papigatuk was watching a hockey game in Salluit, a community in northern Nunavik.She was sitting in the second row around the middle of the rink where there was no protective net when a puck struck her in the head near her right eyebrow.A report by coroner Steeve Poisson says the young girl started crying, but did not lose consciousness. The girl said she was OK and able to walk and an adult who was with her applied a snow-filled bag to her head.Alaku-Papigatuk was accompanied home where she later complained of a headache and started to vomit.The following morning, her father noticed she wasn’t breathing and took her to the local health centre where medical personnel tried unsuccessfully to revive her.An autopsy later revealed Alaku-Papigatuk died as a result of the head injury caused by the puck.Poisson says a protective net around the perimeter of the arena would probably have saved the girl’s life.He has recommended that Quebec’s department of education, leisure and sport study the effectiveness of installing netting in all hockey arenas in Quebec.
Former AC Milan midfielder Alberto Aquilani believes his old Sassuolo team-mate Stefano Sensi would be a great signing for the clubThe 23-year-old had a standout year in 2018, where he established himself as one of the star players in the Serie A and made his international debut for Italy.Now, in light of reports linking Sensi with a move to Milan, Aquilani has praised the highly-rated youngster and compared him to Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti.“The right man for Milan? Yes because Stefano is young and has great potential,” Aquilani told Gazzetta dello Sport, via Football-Italia.“He’s grown a lot in recent months. He reminds me of Verratti for the way he plays. A regista and mezz’ala in one? Exactly. He can carry out both roles in the middle of the park.Maurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“As a regista he has an excellent vision, even if he lacks physicality, or if you want to build a team devoted to dribbling then he’s ideal.“Stefano’s a very polite and down-to-earth guy, who has his head on his shoulders. I certainly didn’t find him, but what struck me was his attention to the advice I gave him in training.“He’d often run a bit on empty, so I suggested to him the position to occupy tactically, which would make the most of his characteristics.”Sensi has made 14 appearances in the Serie A this season for Sassuolo, who sit in 12th place in the standings.
