Chelsea 4-2 Leicester City: What Palmer and Chukwuemeka said

Chelsea midfielders Cole Palmer and Carney Chukwuemeka have been speaking to BBC One after securing a place in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.

Palmer: "Hard work. We know what Leicester are like, they are a top team and play good football. A difficult afternoon. Glad to get back to Wembley."

Chukwuemeka: "The coach said go on and express yourself, which I did. Cole said to me before the game, if I come on he will assist me and fair play. His IQ is amazing. I knew as soon as I played it, he would find me. Fair play to him."

Palmer: "Try and help the team as much as possible, in tough moments and in good moments. That's what I'm there for."

Palmer on his England call up: "I'm looking forward to it, my second time with England, it will be great to see the lads."

Chukwuemeka on progressing in the FA Cup: "We wanted to win a trophy this season. Now we're in the last four so, hopefully, we can still do that."
