But the Chelsea boss has warned that his side won’t even make it beyond today’s semi-final against Southampton if they produce the same shoddy performance they did in the first 60-odd minutes against the Saints in the Premier League last weekend.
“If we go to play with the right team spirit, like on Thursday against Burnley or in the last 30 minutes of the Southampton game, we have a possibility of reaching the final.
