the Chelsea boss says he has warned his players that it is far too early for any talk of a league and cup double for Chelsea this season.

"I tried to warn the changing room about the difficulty of this game, and of this competitionon. I like to repeat that in England in every game in every competition there does not exist an easy game It is the truth.

"Wolverhampton started the game very well with great intensity. They tried to develop the play on the flank and put a lot of crosses in but we defended well. They hit the post early on and we were lucky in this circumstance but in the second half we played our football, scored two goals and created chances, but Wolverhampton deserve my compliments.

"In the league we are doing and great job in staying on top of the table and now we are in the FA Cup quarter-final and I am pleased for this but after this game it is important to understand that nothing is easy. It will be very difficult to win both competitions but we want to try to win some trophies." Conte told the Blues' official website.

Pedro darted in and headed home at the back post before Diego Costa sealed Chelsea's place with his 16th goal of the season as he slid a low finish past Ikeme.
