Chelsea's Alvaro Morata shares wonderful news before Huddersfield

Chelsea's Alvaro Morata shares wonderful news before Huddersfield”

Antonio Conte has confirmed that Alvaro Morata will not play against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night due to fatigue and a back problem.

"We must be very realistic to understand that this league is very risky", Conte, whose side lost 1-0 at struggling West Ham United on Saturday, told a news conference.

Conte may not be pleased to see his side miss out on a clean sheet, but this was a dominant showing from Chelsea, who looked a different team to the one that was beaten by West Ham United on Saturday. "It's frustrating", said Chelsea captain Gary Cahill.

Spurs have endured a tricky recent spell in the Premier League but their performances in Europe this season suggest they have matured under manager Mauricio Pochettino after the disappointment of crashing out in the group stage a year ago.

"Morata is out, because he's a bit exhausted and there is a problem in his back", Conte told reporters at his pre-match news conference.

"When we play like this it is easy to play - good movement, the manager wanted us to move a lot and not always stay in the same position".

Huddersfield winger Tom Ince believes life will be made very uncomfortable for Chelsea when they visit the John Smith's Stadium.

"I think [Bakayoko] played a very good game. We beat United here - we deserved to beat them - and we ran City close".

Huddersfield recorded a much needed win last weekend as they turned over Brighton 2-0. In 17 games we lost four games. "This guy is a young player, a player with great potential and I think he is starting to understand what I want".

Conte was impressed with the contribution of his attacking players and highlighted the performance of Bakayoko, who has come under scrutiny for his displays since arriving from Monaco.

Chelsea fans would be wise to check their next opponent's club history after making an awkward gaffe during their game with Huddersfield Town. David Luiz remains sidelined with a knee injury and will again play no part, but Danny Drinkwater is back in contention following a bout of illness.
