FA Cup is of little importance to Chelsea, according to Antonio Conte.
Chelsea are out of the title race, with Manchester City sure to lift the title, as they face a fight to finish in the top four.
Conte who is under pressure, watched how they crashed out of the UCL to Barcelona. The FA Cup is the only title Chelsea can win.
“For sure we have to win this competition. But it’s not important,” he said. “A lot of times we compare, good season, bad season, if you win something. But you have to know what our level is now.”
“I’m very satisfied with my job and the work we’re doing. Me, the staff, my players, we’re doing a fantastic job,” he said. “Then, if you are able to win something, it’s good. But you have to understand — what is your level in this moment?
“Last season every player performed 120 per cent, maybe 130%. Also, we lost a lot of players who created a basis for Chelsea for a long time.
“This season has confirmed one thing: that last season we did an incredible achievement.
“Now we are trying to build a basis, fundamentals for this club. For this reason, we have a lot of young players, a lack of experience when you play against teams like Barcelona.”
