Conte defends his Chelsea selection

In a match in which Chelsea needed nothing but a win last night, Antonio Conte decided to rest the likes of Victor Moses, Eden Hazard, Giroud and other key players. Giving Morata, Willian, Pedro, and Zappacoasta a chance. The match ended in a draw and Conte has now defend his selection.

Though Hazard came on in the 59th minute but Chelsea were already down by a goal to nil. Chelsea were able to equalise in the 62nd minute through Marcos Alonso and that was all as they were unable to break Huddersfield defence again and the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

'I made a rotation also against Burnley' he said 'To make rotations means to play people like [Alvaro] Morata, Willian and [Andreas] Cheistensen who could play every game.'

'We have a squad that can win, today we spent a lot of energy against Liverpool. This is football and to speak one day, you have always a risk.'

Conte also admits Chelsea might struggle to qualify for next season's Champions League.

'The situation wasn't in our hands and for sure the possibility is less than before,' he said

'At the same time, we have to try and do our best. Like today, we played an intense game with a will and desire to get three points.'

'We weren't able to win the game, this is football.'

Do you think Chelsea can still qualify for the Champions League?
