Chelsea Striker Alvaro Morata Declares Himself Fit for West Brom Fixture

14 February 2018

When asked about his importance to Chelsea and Antonio Conte, Morata told Movistar: "He is the one who counts on me and that's the truth".

"That is until the physical problems arrived".

The most expensive player in Chelsea history began his Blues career in really fine form, getting off to an extremely hot start, but he's since been set back by injuries.

The Spain worldwide returned to the pitch as a substitute in Monday's 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge, producing a lively 30-minute cameo after replacing January signing Olivier Giroud up front and forcing several impressive saves from Ben Foster. "I don't know [when he'll be back] because he has this problem and we tried a lot to find a solution to solve the pain in his back".

Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata, has warned his teammates that Barcelona star, Lionel Messi will be unstoppable when the two sides meet in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 clash.

As a lifelong Real Madrid fan, Morata will be desperate to score against their arch-rivals and hopefully knock them out of the Champions League, but his injury might restrict him from featuring in either leg.

Chelsea and Conte have given Morata the opportunity to play first-team football as a regular starter, something he was never afforded at Madrid or Juventus.

The Spaniard has not featured for the Premier League champions since January 17th.

"But first, we have to play a good game here and get a good result, which is not easy against Barcelona". "Life doesn't end when you leave Real Madrid, but I am still a fan of Real Madrid".
