Chelsea Bounces Back With Straightforward Win Over Huddersfield

Huddersfield will have to make do without the services of Philip Billing (ankle), Michael Hefele (Achilles) and Jon Stankovic (knee) for the visit of the Premier League champions.

"We must be very realistic to understand that this league is very risky", Conte, whose side lost 1-0 at struggling West Ham United on Saturday, told a news conference.

After a second half of resolute Chelsea defending and a Lionel Messi penalty miss, Fernando Torres confirmed Roberto Di Matteo's side's place in the final as he rounded Victor Valdes and rolled into an empty net in the 91st-minute.

"My experience tells me it's impossible to win the title", Conte added after his comments following the West Ham game were brought up.

David Luiz was the only weekend absentee and the centre-back is again expected to be missing with a knee problem. We have to try to continue in this way, because my players enjoy to play this type of football, to have this great combination play between our strikers.

Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro combined superbly as Chelsea returned to winning ways against a poor Huddersfield Town side. "I think he played a really good game", the Italian said of the 23-year-old.

The Terriers recorded a morale-boosting 2-0 win over Brighton on Saturday and have already beaten Manchester United at home. "When it is the moment to play Barcelona then we will start thinking about it". We know we are going to be spells in the game where we won't be on top.

Conte was impressed with the contribution of his attacking players and highlighted the performance of Bakayoko, who has come under scrutiny for his displays since arriving from Monaco.

Defender, David Luiz is a main injury concern as he recovers from an inflamation of the right knee.

A long-range effort by Mathias Zanka on 63 minutes was the closet in the game the home side had to an effort on the Chelsea goal, but the stinger sailed helplessly over Thibaut Courtois's crossbar.
