Chelsea doesn't know when injured Alvaro Morata will return

Chelsea sit in fifth place ahead of Monday night's game against bottom club West Brom at Stamford Bridge, and pressure is building on Conte following a dismal run of form.

Conte has been linked with leaving Chelsea over a disagreement with the club board after the lack of signings.

"I think that I'm the type of coach who, if I have a player who is six, I bring him to an eight".

"After the summer? But.as you know very well, my contract expires in 2019. Now I think this is not important to say "we could have done this" or "we should have done that", the Italian manager said. Players like Morata that are important for us are missing for a long time. But, as you know very well because we are talking about football, a lot of times - and I don't agree with this - (the future of) the manager and the coach depends on the results. I can speak about him very well, as a person and a coach. In that case, [they might consider] it's right to send the coach away.

Chelsea will be without suspended midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko for Monday's Premier League meeting with West Brom.

"I am not thinking for only one moment about the possibility to go away from this club", Conte told a news conference on Friday.


Conte continued: "We do this job, and our job is not "difficult" but you must understand the situation can change". There are two ways. Maybe people have to find a bit more balance. Then you build something with him. There is a stupid way and an intelligent way.

Asked if it is unusual to see somebody he likes linked to his job, Conte added: "At the start, you started to speak about Carlo Ancelotti".

Morata, 25, has scored 10 Premier League goals this season after arriving from Madrid for a reported £60million in July a year ago.

And Pardew believes the Premier League champions have suffered in part due to the departure of the Brazil-born Spain striker, who hit 20 goals last season before returning to Atletico Madrid. 'When you've got one of those at the top of the pitch they're very hard to replace'.

Former Watford chief Marco Silva has been named as a potential candidate to try and get the Blues back on track and finish the season strongly.
