Morata out for a month after injury

Ex-Blue questions if Conte fully trusts in-form Chelsea pair

Antonio Conte could be after another striker this January says Wayne Bridge

It is the same. This feat flew under the radar, but is in many ways responsible for how well the season went. He can do absolutely everything. After, without the ball, he's the most humble, the most shy guy.

Chelsea will not know the full extent of Alvaro Morata's hamstring injury until he undergoes further assessment at the club's Cobham training ground later this week, sources have told ESPN FC. "Everyone feels comfortable with him on the pitch".

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata could be out of action for six weeks after scans revealed a hamstring injury.

"We are so happy for the victory, we are here for the result but especially happy for the way we played, where we played".

And Makelele, who also once swapped the Bernabeu for Stamford Bridge, believes the Spanish striker has a natural goalscoring instinct.

So that then leaves super sub Batshuayi in the limelight.

"I know that I will have more playing opportunities in the coming weeks". Despite his current form with Man City, the FC crew say it made sense for Chelsea to let Kevin De Bruyne go when they did. It is no surprise that he would still be tired.

The Chelsea board may make the point that Michy Batshuayi, the likeable £34 million Belgian who signed from Marseille in 2016, stands ready to take his place, but Conte doesn't seem to rate him. "Of course he will score goals at Chelsea". And this is not the only grievance that Conte holds.

However, Morata had an upbeat message for fans on Facebook on Tuesday as he gave the camera the thumbs up and suggested he is targeting a return in Chelsea's very next match - away at Crystal Palace on October 14.
