Morata ruled out of Chelsea's trip to Crystal Palace

Morata ruled out of Chelsea's trip to Crystal Palace

"With Kante we are going to do a scan next week to check his situation and if it is improving".

"Kante has a muscular problem and he is going to remain out of action for 20 days at least".

"As you know, we have three injured players", said Conte. We don't have another player with the same characteristics.

Crystal Palace will be hoping to finally get off the mark when they welcome Chelsea to Selhurst Park for Saturday's Premier League clash.

Kante will be a "big loss" for Chelsea, says Antonio Conte.

"Drinkwater is progressing well but is not ready yet". However, the duo Conte admits he will have to rotate, meaning 19-year-old Scott and 17-year-old Ampadu could be given a chance during Kante's absence.


"For sure we are not lucky in this period because of all our midfielder we only have Bakayoko and Fabregas available".

"In this area of the field we have only Bakayoko and Fabregas". It could be an option if I decide to play with three central midfielders. "I won't move David Luiz from defence, he is one of the best defenders in the world and I want change his position", the Italian said (as quoted by Il Corriere dello Sport).

"If I can, I prefer not to change a lot".

"When I chose to utilise him in midfield against Tottenham we played with three central midfielders. Or give an opportunity to young players like Ampadu or Scott".

Conte was able to deliver a more promising bulletin on Alvaro Morata, who missed worldwide duty with Spain due to a hamstring injury sustained against Manchester City on September 30, but is expected to return on Wednesday.

Morata didn't play for Spain over the last fortnight, but Conte hopes he will return to face Roma at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
