Conte wants Blues fans to recreate Wembley noise

Antonio Conte has urged Chelsea fans to recreate the atmosphere from Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham when Southampton visit Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

A Blues win over the Saints would stretch their Premier League lead to seven points and put the pressure back on second-placed Spurs, who are away to Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

“On Tuesday I want our supporters to help the players on the pitch,” Conte said.

“I want this a lot because it is a really important for us. We need our fans in the same way like against Tottenham when they pushed a lot.”
