Chelsea skipper Terry could return to face Wolves

Goals from Pedro and Diego Costa at Molineux saw Chelsea book their place in the quarter-final of the competition, while they now enjoy an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League table too.

Antonio Conte says Chelsea are setting their sights on achieving an historic Double by winning the Premier League and FA Cup this season, but the coach warned it will be "difficult" to fulfill their ambitions in both competitions.

They managed to finally break through in the 65th minute, and managed to take the lead with some class. Costa did well to hold up the play before sending Willian away, he floated a great ball into the back post where Pedro was waiting to head home from close-range.

The last time Wolves and Chelsea met in the FA Cup was in Round 6 in 1993/94, which saw the Blues win thanks to a Gavin Peacock goal. It's important that when I decide to put them in the starting 11 I get a good reply. Wolves beat Liverpool away and Stoke away.

Championship Wolves produced another blinder and will find it hard to believe they did not force a replay at the very least.

"We're up against a team that's eight points clear in the Premier League with a great manager and a great team who are playing ever so well", Lambert said.

"I was at Wolves' 2-1 win over Liverpool in the last round and they had a real go", said Lawrenson.




Asked if he was confident of keeping Costa he said: "Yes, I'm confident, but I repeat now it's important to keep the great concentration for the present".

Antonio Conte's charges had a lot to do in the second-half as Wolves dominated the first.

Conte insists he treats all of his players the same, whether they start every game or are more peripheral.

Wolves were given ample time and space in Chelsea's half of the field and Helder Costa turned neatly before firing a shot into the arms of Begovic, but there was a sense that the visitors were only biding their time before stepping up a gear.

As long as we play the game and not the occasion we'll see what happens.

There are some really interesting potential upsets around in the FA Cup this weekend and I do fancy Tottenham to be pushed hard on Sunday by Fulham. Terry could take his place in the centre of defence.

Conte told his Friday press conference gathering, "We have the opportunity to give him a week to recover very well and to prepare for the next game".
