Chelsea target Wilson not for sale in January - Howe

Chelsea had piled on the pressure from the start and there were good chances for Olivier Giroud, Ross Barkley, who forced a diving save from Artur Boruc and Willian, who surged forward from the halfway line after 30 minutes only for Boruc to block his rising shot.

"What they have done over the a year ago or so in England is quite frightening for a team in League One".

Sarri has deployed Hazard in the "false 9" role recently so with Alvaro Morata still nursing a knee injury that kept him out of Chelsea's win over Bournemouth, I think we may see him through the middle against Leicester.

"Financial considerations for us as this stage are the main thing but it's also something for everyone to look forward to. There are three out of the top four in the Premier League left in the competition, and us - it's incredible".

"Then we have to get something out of Wycombe and Plymouth at home over Christmas".

While speaking to Sky Sports after the game, the English midfielder couldn't stop praising his teammate and admitted that he is able to create magical moments in big games, "The way we were playing, you could see we had the belief that a goal was going to come. We have fantastic supporters and I'm sure they'll be supporting respectfully and in the Chelsea way".

"This will be our fourth London derby".

"We are certainly not anticipating losing players in January that we don't want to". That loss was very tough.

Before the game, Blues assistant boss Gianfranco Zola said Wilson was "of interest" to Chelsea and "many clubs".

Two members of the Chelsea Supporters Trust will be invited to sit around a table with two from Tottenham, along with the Metropolitan Police and local authorities in charge of staging the first leg at Wembley in the second week of January.
