Chelsea boss Conte: Two strikers can work for us

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was delighted with the performance of his strikers for their 2-1 win at Burnley.

Victor Moses grabbed the winner in a game where Conte started with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud in attack.

Speaking about playing two strikers in the future, Conte said: "This is a really good option. In the past it was very difficult for me to try this option with the two strikers but they showed a great link and a great combination and at the same time they worked very hard for the team.

"For sure we will try to reach the FA Cup final. It won't be easy but we must be ready to fight. I saw a fantastic spirit tonight. We must continue this way."

Meanwhile, Clarets goalscorer Ashley Barnes conceded: "It felt like we were chasing shadows at times in the first half but we upped the tempo in the second half.

"We still have four games to go and hopefully we can pick up as many points as possible and see where we finish."
