Carabao Cup: Chelsea manager Antonio Conte speaks on making to the semi-finals

Antonio Conte was proud of his fringe players as his Chelsea side battled past Bournemouth and into the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.
The Blues boss made eight changes to his side for the match at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, although it took a 91st-minute goal from substitute Alvaro Morata to seal a 2-1 win and see them through into the last four, where they'll play Arsenal.

He said "The most important thing is we're in the semi-finals, last season we lost to West Ham in the second round so we must be happy with this achievement. To reach the semi-final in one of the two cups in England is great for us, especially with a lot [of squad] rotation. I had good responses from my players and I hope to continue in this way. Many players had their chances tonight to play from the start and I think I had good responses. It's also not simple when you concede a goal in the last minute of the game, so to have this type of reaction shows great character, personality and heart."
