Chelsea boss Antonio Conte provides major injury update on Alvaro Morata

Share

Chelsea's lengthy injury list is a stark contrast to last season, when Conte was able to field the same starting line-up most weeks.

Against a team that had lost each of their previous seven Premier League fixtures this season without scoring a solitary goal, the Blues suffered their second successive defeat and third from eight games in the league.

Chelsea, who are fifth in the standings on 13 points, have now lost their last two league games, including the damaging home defeat by Manchester City before the worldwide break.

The goal certainly attracted attention from Spurs fans, who may have spent the months leading into the summer hoping that he may be Wembley-bound after helping the Eagles just about stay up last season.

"We mustn't be happy", Conte added.

He said: "When you start a game without Morata and without Kante, it's not simple. For this reason we have to put 150, 100 per cent won't be enough", the Italian was quoted saying by the Guardian on Sunday.

"Tomorrow I'm not taking a risk if I decide for Morata to play". Everyone can see our situation.

"It will be very hard for me to sleep", he said. Last season is the past.
