It will be conducted by Gianfranco Zola, who won the FA Cup with Chelsea in 1997 and 2000, and Petr Cech, the Arsenal goalkeeper with five winners' medals to his name.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Chelsea's campaign in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League came to an end on Wednesday night, March 14, after losing 0-3 against Spanish leaders Barcelona.

"In the Carabao Cup we reached the semifinal, in Champions League the last 16".

Asked if failing to qualify for the Champions League for the second time in three seasons would make Chelsea less attractive in the market, Conte - preparing for Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final against Leicester City - told reporters: "I don't know if it's a problem to attract a great player or not".

"Don't forget that two years ago, Chelsea finished 10th with many players of this season, and they made a decision to continue to play for this club", he continued.

Antonio Conte has declined to show Gary Cahill and Álvaro Morata a great deal of sympathy after they were omitted from their respective global squads, with the Chelsea manager making clear the only way for them to prove they deserve to go to the World Cup is by working hard for their club. They want to fight a lot, in the last game we played them we suffered a lot.

"Do the players need to take responsibility?"

"We have to try to do both", Conte said.

"Leicester is a good team". Well, we wouldn't be Chelsea Football Club if we had learnt from our past mistakes and thus I have my doubts whether this season's shortcomings would lead to us getting off as lightly as we did back then. "For this reason I'll pick the best solution for Sunday's game".

"This is a question for the coach of the national teams, not for me", Conte said when asked whether Cahill's and Morata's omissions placed doubt over their involvement in the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

"I think this is a team that can grow in terms of quality and experience".
