"If you watched the game, you can see the final result is unfair", he added.

Costa played under Conte at Chelsea as they won the Premier League in the 2016/17 season, but had a falling out which prompted the former's return to Spain.

"We are talking about a player [Messi] that every season he scores 60 goals".

After the game, Chelsea requested those affected to contact the club and a spokesman said they were "aware" of the incidents that took place. The Spanish soccer great has made 433 appearances for Barcelona - the only club he's ever played for - since turning pro in 2002.

Roy Keane has laughed off suggestions that Eden Hazard is the same calibre of player as Lionel Messi. We are talking not about a top player but a super top player.

"Leicester is a good team". Many teams can hope to have him in their team, but it won't be possible.

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta revealed he has an offer to move to China and will make a decision on his future before the end of April. "For this reason I'll pick the best solution for Sunday's game", he said.

Chelsea visit Leicester City in the FA Cup quarter-final on Sunday. Italy's Roma, Juventus and German giants Bayern Munich complete the line-up for the last eight.
