"They want to fight a lot, in the last game we played them we suffered a lot", the Italian added.

Chelsea are also fifth in the Premier League, four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with eight games remaining.

"We all know Vardy's characteristics". The goal came from the boots of Lionel Messi who, somehow, managed to find the net from an acute angle, shooting through the legs of the Chelsea goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois.

"I don't think we deserve to be out, but individual mistakes cost us in both legs", the Belgium global told BT Sport. "They have stuck with it, they have made mistakes, but they've kept going". To try to go into the next round and reach the semi-final of the FA Cup.

"If we can put together a decent case and the club take that to UEFA, backed by the supporter organisations, something might actually register with UEFA. We have FA Cup and Premier League to fight for".

"We have special plans to try to defend well", Conte said.

Meanwhile, Messi was quick to praise his team-mates despite having a decisive say in Barca's triumph. "We have to make sure we play in the Champions League next year".

"It was a really tough game".

While all the chatter on several platforms in the build-up had been about the Cules' display of affection for their favourite son, once the game got underway, Messi's barnstorming performance against a hapless Blues side quickly became the talk of the town.

And Andy Jacobs, one half of Hawksbee and Jacobs - on talkSPORT every weekday from 1pm-4pm - has insisted they could have done better had it not been for Conte.

Andres Iniesta returned from a hamstring injury to start for Barcelona but the 33-year-old could leave the Nou Camp at the end of the season. Messi then scored his 100 Champions League goal to hand the Catalan giants a massive 4-1 aggregate win.

It was always going to be a hard task for Chelsea considering their recent form in the Premier League and losing an early goal didn't help. We played Barcelona, but we've had whole weeks to recover and rest.
