Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte is struggling to sleep. The Blues' schedule means tomorrow's FA Cup fourth-round tie with Newcastle is their eighth of nine games in January. Conte said: "I live this job with great passion, with great love and for this reason sometimes I don't sleep." The Italian reviews his team's performances on nights when he cannot sleep.

"When I don't sleep I usually continue to work with the computer also because I don't want to create problems with my wife," he remarked. "I go to the living room and start to work, to watch the game or to try to find a solution. To watch the game is important — to understand positive things and negative things and to try to improve your team. For me, it is very important to understand quickly the reason we lost."
