Ross Barkley set to start in FA Cup as Chelsea injuries mount

Courtois, meanwhile, was also unavailable for those two games due to an ankle injury and Conte confirmed in the press conference that his two regular starters will remain on the sidelines when Newcastle visit Stamford Bridge.

A some what dry spell in front of goal seems to have erased his fantastic early season form from his critic's minds - who he will be hoping to prove wrong with a bit of renewed confidence. I'm happy to work with my players, I'm happy to work for this club.

"I think it is right to have this type of situation", the former Juventus manager added.

He has wanted to go after top, proven worldwide frontmen, but the club are apprehensive about giving him much cash.

"When I don't sleep I continue to work with the computer also because I don't want to create problems with my wife".

"I am not anxious".

But questioned whether the England global would be fit to start, Conte said: "After a bad injury, you need a bit of time to be 100% fit".

"If you want to accelerate the process, he has to play, not just a training session - especially in this moment with Willian and Alvaro Morata injuries as we don't have other options".

Conte said: "We have to face great difficulties".

Morata sat out of the 2-1 defeat to the Gunners in the semi-final second leg tie due to a back injury having previously missed the Premier League's 4-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League through suspension. "He is available on Sunday".

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez: "Every game is important, but obviously we know how massive it is to stay in the Premier League, because of all the money around and then you can improve your team if you have more money".

The Blues boss, whose side crashed out of the Carabao Cup at Arsenal this week, insists he does not fear the bullet himself. We lost against Arsenal, now there is another competition.

"As you know this competition is very hard. In this case it's more hard for the coach, because the players love to play and not have training sessions".
