Premier League talking points

Jose Mourinho faced the media in Rostov on Thursday

Jose Mourinho faced the media in Rostov on Thursday

Chelsea take on Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Monday and, having played in every round of the competition so far, Terry is expected to take to the field.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has remained non-committal about club captain John Terry's long term future at Stamford Bridge.

Ahead of the game, Jose Mourinho has given ManUtd.com an early team news and injury update following their hard-fought draw at FC Rostov in the Europa League last night.

We don't have Zlatan, of course not, but we go with everything we have. "So we have to make changes, for sure, but we can not go to Stamford Bridge with a bad team".

"We are doing a good job, my players and staff and it is important to continue to do it this way".

Mourinho, whose side have already won the League Cup this season, also acknowledged the importance of the Europa League as a potential route into next season's Champions League for a team now sitting sixth in the Premier League. We got the three points, that's the most important thing.

Yet Conte claims United and Manchester City, 10 points adrift in third in the league, have stronger squads than Chelsea.

"Don't forget Chelsea is a great team in the same way as Barcelona and Real Madrid", he said. If we win, I can tell you this. "We'll try to manage it within our squad and get a good team to compete with them". Now we are in March and we stay on top of the table. It is not hugely surprising though, given the way United had to play the game because of the shocking state of the pitch, if you can call it a pitch that is.

However, Chelsea have just as good of a shot at the title as anyone next year.

Terry, whom Conte says has been performing a vital role in transferring his message to the players behind the scenes, has started every FA Cup game instead.
