Rio Ferdinand states his prediction for Barcelona v Chelsea FC

Antonio Conte

For me, apart from the mistake, his performance was great, was wonderful. Conte sharply insisted he has not missed a trick by overlooking the Brazilian for big games until now. I think he can be captain.

Conte will likely use the strongest line-up that he has available to him, despite his squad putting so much into the midweek game. I have to try and make the best decision for the team, no? "At the moment we are getting closer and closer to the end of the season, so we have to get the points".

Willian has started 10 more games for Chelsea this year compared to the same time last season, due to an increased fixture schedule after a run to the semi-final in the Carabao Cup and the club's involvement in Europe. Chelsea sold Matic for £40 million to Sunday's opponents Manchester United and Conte had only positive things to say about the Serbia global.

Chelsea have only won one of their last four games to fall further away from City, with Tottenham snapping at their heels in fifth place, but Conte says his players have not lost focus.

The Dane has made 31 appearances for Chelsea this season, and Conte said: "Personally I forgot his mistake".

"But I am predicting a 2-1 win for Chelsea". Giroud will do a fantastic job for us and I'm looking forward to him and Alvaro Morata sharing the striker duties when called for.

Pep Guardiola: Manchester City boss charged by FA over 'political message'
The City chief claimed: "If they want to suspend me - Uefa, Premier League, Fifa". There were even two formal warnings in which the Catalan boss supposedly ignored.

Harry Robinson, host of the Manchester United Weekly Podcast "You rarely ever go into games against Chelsea with confidence as a United fan, even though they've looked a shadow of the team they were last season in recent months. Not on Sunday, but in the future".

The Blues then face Crystal Palace before going away to Barcelona.

"You don't get a lot of balls".

"We have to play a flawless game, we know we are playing against very good players in a tough stadium but we are confident and we will try to qualify".

The Chelsea boss told a Friday news conference: "Do you think that I am stupid when I put Willy on the bench? Otherwise, we are in trouble".
