The Premier League champions will face Arsenal in the semi-final after Alvaro Morata’s late goal salvaged a 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Wednesday evening.
But United’s defence of the Carabao Cup has come to a surprising end after they slipped to a 2-1 defeat away to Bristol City, who now face Manchester City in the next round.
And Conte believes the Championship club’s result is another reminder that his players must ‘pay great attention’ in every match they play.
‘It’s a big achievement,’ said the Chelsea manager.
‘Last season Manchester United won this competition. It’s not easy in England to play in the league, FA Cup or Carabao Cup.
‘We must pay great attention in every game.
‘At the same time, this cup is very good for these types of result. You don’t know what happens before the game.
‘I knew the final result in the changing room. It’s a surprise.
‘In England it’s difficult to face every team.’
