Too early to talk about Chelsea double - Conte

Make no mistake, while the Premier League is the priority Conte is clearly hellbent on lifting the Cup too - and joining former Chelsea boss and fellow Italian Carlo Ancelotti as the only boss to win the Double in his debut season.

Pedro Rodriguez finally made the breakthrough in the 64th minute after the Spain worldwide combined with Willian to end Wolves's resilience in front of their home supporters.

This season Chelsea have played only six midweek matches, and several of those were in the minor League Cup where most clubs choose to rest their key first-team players.

"I think that's the right way to have a good dressing room". Don't forget Wolverhampton won against Liverpool away, won against Stoke away.

It is clear the size of the task facing Wolves is not lost on Lambert but he hopes his team can spring another surprise, as they did at the bet365 Stadium and at Anfield.

"In the league we are doing and great job in staying on top of the table and now we are in the FA Cup quarter-final and I am pleased for this, but after this game it is important to understand that nothing is easy". They started well and made it hard for us.

Asked about a potential double, Conte said in a press conference: "I like to win every competition in every season".


But as Wolves exhausted after the break, Chelsea began to take control.

Conte also praised Championship side Wolves, who caused Chelsea plenty of problems, particularly in the first half.

The game will also be shown on TV on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport 4K UHD, as well as via the acclaimed enhanced video player on the BT Sport app.

But the FA Cup squad will not have the same speed, precision or internal rhythm - largely due to lack of experience playing together.

"It's important, this. I want to give them a great respect because I demand this".

For Chelsea, the focus quickly returns to the Premier League and they host a resurgent Swansea City at Stamford Bridge next week with an eight-point gap over second-place Manchester City.

They've obviously got Cesc Fabregas to come in but his other options aren't quite as strong and Eden Hazard hasn't kicked a ball in the competition so far, so it will be interesting to see whether he plays. We made this game what it was tonight.
