Chelsea's Alonso seeks win against Roma after league setbacks

18 October 2017

Leicester City's Jamie Vardy is another player who Conte is keen on but again, getting the Foxes to sell him could be hard and with the World Cup on the horizon, Vardy is likely to want to be playing regularly, something he would not be guaranteed at Chelsea.

The return of Morata will give surely give some relief to the manager Antonio Conte and the Chelsea fans.

"This season will be hard but we must also understand we have to try to build something important for the future".

"We've had many worldwide players who have been away but that's part and parcel of modern football". "For us he showed in every game great talent and to be a really good player".

Chelsea, who top Group C after two wins, will be without Moses and N'Golo Kante through hamstring injuries, while Danny Drinkwater (calf) will also miss out. "If this isn't possible I have to take a risk".

- Conte admits that Chelsea are in trouble after losing 3/8. Kante, it's the first time. Moses it is the first time he has played three games in a row.

He added: 'Honestly I could have taken a risk on Saturday to force him to play again Palace, but I'm not so stupid. But if I don't put Morata in the starting XI you tell me I am insane.

Alvaro Morata is expected to start Chelsea's Champions League match against Roma on Wednesday night, after manager Antonio Conte confirmed in his pre-match press conference that he has returned to training following a hamstring injury.

The Blues were superior tactically and physically when deservedly triumphing in Madrid last month but will need to improve on more recent displays.

"He's ready", Alonso told reporters this afternoon.

Chelsea have scored at least twice in seven of their past eight at this level on home soil and should fancy their chances of extending that streak with Roma shipping two goals or more in four of their previous six away days in the Champions League.

"We know very well our situation".
