GETTY Antonio Conte's Chelsea are out of the Champions League

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte suggests that he will not continue to rotate his first-team squad for the club's remaining games in the FA Cup.

The defeat left Chelsea FC playing for the FA Cup and a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

The shot-stopper was at fault for Lionel Messi's opener in the third minute at Camp Nou when the Argentine's shot went through the goalkeeper's legs as FC Barcelona went 1-0 up on the night.

"We have to try to do both", he said. We started the season to try to fight until the end for every competition.

Hailing FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi for his superlative display against Chelsea, manager Antonio Conte said his kind of player is born only once every 50 years.

"Now there is the FA Cup, this is a quarter-final and if we win then we play at Wembley. We have FA Cup and Premier League to fight for". Marcos Alonso hit the post and Olivier Giroud was unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty for a tangle with Gerard Pique as Chelsea tried to launch a comeback, before Messi killed the tie with his 100th Champions League goal.

'I am very pleased to have the opportunity at the end of the game to give him my compliment.

"I think there have been a lot of positives in both games against Barcelona and I think we have to show this desire in the next games", Alonso said.

However, Barcelona got off to the ideal start in this game when, with less than three minutes played, they took the lead. "It was a pity to go out, especially after two good performances against Barcelona". The weakest point is between the legs for a goalkeeper.

"They want to go to the next round to try to write the history of this competition".

One of the biggest fears Chelsea face in not qualifying for the Champions League is the exodus of elite players, with Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois likely to leave without Champions League football.

'It's annoying, but I don't think I have to hide, I have to come out, be a man, and say I made a mistake and move on.
