Chelsea still a team in transition, says Conte

In addition to being their seventh successive FA Cup semi-final defeat, the loss came against their London rivals Chelsea, who they are now battling for the Premier League title. Whoever comes into their squad is a great player and we were just focused on us. They are two different competitions.

"It's great to know when after a week we finish the championship we have to play a final in the FA Cup. It's a tough game, Palace away, they've been on a great run recently and it's not easy, but we will fight until the end".

"I think that now at Chelsea we are in a period of transition", Conte said after his team's win at Wembley.

On Tuesday, Chelsea host Southampton, who will be refreshed after 10 days rest, while Tottenham have an extra day to recover before travelling to Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Chelsea prevailed against Spurs despite Conte surprisingly dropping playmaker Eden Hazard and Diego Costa to the bench.

Provisional Chelsea squad: Courtois, Begovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Alonso, Kante, Hazard, Loftus-Cheek, Moses, Pedro, Costa, Matic, Willian, Batshuayi, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Luiz, Eduardo, Aina, Ake.

The brother who was driving pulled over and tried to motion to police for help, she said. "That was exclusively on me". Jackson said, "Their boy was brutally murdered, violently murdered in front of his brothers".

And Lloris told reporters: "It's my fifth season for Tottenham and I can see the team is enjoying fighting and competing against the best teams".

Dan Kilpatrick and Liam Twomey discuss the surprise lineups that played a role in Chelsea and Spurs' FA Cup semifinal.

Conte said: "First of all it's important to win for us and to look at ourselves".

And all three were instrumental as Antonio Conte's side moved within 12 points of the title with five games remaining.

Now on a seven-game winning streak in the league, Spurs have been unstoppable. It is not hard to pinpoint the team's problem - it is the league's lowest goal scorers, having managed just 23 all season. With second-placed Spurs hot on their trails, the title might well be decided on the final day of the season. City is fourth, just one point and one place above United.

Their Premier League season concludes against current bottom club Sunderland on May 21.
