READ MORE: Swansea vs Chelsea: Predicting Antonio Conte's Starting XI

Antonio Conte Manager of Chelsea gives his team instructions during The Emirates FA Cup Semi Final match between Chelsea and Southampton at Wembley Stadium

Antonio Conte has complained throughout the season that his squad was not deep enough to compete across all competitions and has clashed with the board on several occasions over their transfer policy.

"We are talking about an important player for Chelsea". The mood at Stamford Bridge would be exceptionally buoyant heading into FA Cup final showdown with Manchester United at Wembley. Lack of inspired leadership has been a big part problem, but a solution may have already presented itself to the Italian - Gary Cahill. The Clarets subsequently charged into what proved to be an irretrievable 3-0 lead and the fingers of blame pointed squarely at the skipper.

Cahill remains Chelsea's captain, a role he took on full-time following John Terry's departure past year and Conte suggested a period of adjustment has been necessary in the club icon's absence.

Antonio Conte believes Gary Cahill should be named in England's World Cup squad despite dropping the defender for Chelsea earlier this season. He now faces the task of having to prove himself once again if he is to make the squad for Russian Federation.

N'Golo Kante has conceded that he felt worn out during the season because of Chelsea's heavy workload, but is certain he will be fit for France's World Cup campaign.

The Blues moved within two points of the Champions League qualification places with a 1-0 win at Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Olivier Giroud was signed from London rivals Arsenal in January to bolster Conte's attacking options, but the Frenchman has so far managed to only net twice in the Premier League since switching allegiances.
