Antonio Conte Gives Alvaro Morata Injury Update

Chelsea could win the Champions League this season says Peter Shilton

In 2014, Atletico Madrid knocked Chelsea out of the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 3-1 win in London.

Antonio Conte does not expect Alvaro Morata to spend too long on the sidelines after Chelsea's top scorer was forced off with a first-half injury during the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City. "But, for sure, I like to repeat to him that in every game he must be decisive".

Chelsea will enter Saturday's Premier League heavyweight title clash with Manchester City with no new injuries. The Chelsea man was caught impersonating the City player.

For club football fans, the often-frustrating global break comes up after this weekend's round of matches, which means that there will be no club football next weekend, a scenario some fans are already dreading.

Chelsea have now lost twice at Stamford Bridge this season and Conte said they had faced a tough fixtures schedule.

But he adapted to a role as a second striker as Chelsea become the first English team to beat Atletico Madrid at home in Europe on Wednesday.

The Belgian winger joined the Blues when he was 21 years old, but he had already played in Europe's premier competition for Lille.

Morata isn't used to playing week-in, week-out and playing three games in seven days could have affected him physically after bit part roles at both Juventus and Real Madrid.

Chelsea will still be without Danny Drinkwater. Every single player performed very well in this game.

I think CSKA will be very aggressive and, while United can look after themselves, it will unsettle their rhythm and it might take a while for them to get going, especially without Paul Pogba or Marouane Fellaini. "I think we have the points we deserve".

"I think our start wasn't so, so easy".

"Chelsea felt more comfortable than us and won the game deservedly", said Atletico coach Simeone. I like to watch his games.

Guardiola will be without top scorer Sergio Aguero following a vehicle crash on his day off in Holland on Thursday.

"Before taking this decision someone must analyse very well this situation".

Punching his fist while describing the hunger shown by Ronaldo and Messi, Conte added: "I see, for Ronaldo, that if he scores once he wants two, three, four".
