Arsenal's shock January target from Chelsea revealed

Chelsea news David Luiz

"When they come in, can they make a big enough impact to sustain and keep their place?"

Working alongside former Liverpool rival Jamie Carragher, Terry was asked to pick the best starting line-up of players to have played in the Premier League - without including those from his old club.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is ready to offload the Brazilian defender, with Juventus the front-runners to sign him in the winter transfer window.

Conte fielded weakened teams in the earlier rounds against Nottingham Forest and Everton and although the semi-finals are now in sight, he is not planning to change his approach.

The player in question was Thierry Henry - who scored 175 Premier League goals for Arsenal, earning himself a reputation as one of the finest forwards to have ever played the game. This season though, things haven't been quite the same. He was unhappy when Belgium coach Roberto Martinez dared to play the country's captain.

But Batshuayi, 24, has been overlooked over the past fortnight, with Eden Hazard used as a central striker while Alvaro Morata was out with a back problem.

Thibaut Courtois is expected to be given a rest with Willy Caballero coming in between the sticks tomorrow night.

John Terry has revealed that he had little choice but to snub a move to Swansea City, despite the best efforts of the club's manager Paul Clement.

Certainly, Conte does not appear to have the problems of Southampton counterpart Mauricio Pellegrino.

His main advocate, and the man who effectively signed him, is now no longer there to talk-up his case, Michael Emenalo having shifted his stock to Monaco. Last season he didn't play.

So, do you want to stay, Antonio?

The young midfielder seemed to defy the collective slump, however, scoring four times in the last three games to end up in double figures for the season, just one behind the club's two joint scorers with 10 in 33 starts.

Yet Conte is worth the trouble for Chelsea.

Conte will not be Chelsea boss forever.

"At the same time it's right in this competition to give the opportunity to the players not playing regularly".
