Great news for Chelsea, as Antonio Conte himself revealed that one of the players the team dearly missed last weekend in their loss to Crystal Palace is perfectly fit to play against Roma.
Alvaro is in contention for tomorrow’s game. He has been training with us and is in contention
the Blues manager told a Press conference talking about Alvaro Morata.
We have players that are not used to playing three in a row. Kante and Moses. It’s their first time to play three games in a row, Morata the first time regularly, Alonso is the same. Sometimes you have to take a risk, like against Manchester City when Morata got injured, but if I didn’t start him you’d tell me I’m crazy. Sometimes the players need to rest
the Italian said, referring to other players who are injured, and he’ll have to make do without them in tomorrow’s Champions League game against Roma.
Marcos Alonso represented Chelsea’s players in the same Press conference, and when asked about Morata, his comment was
Alvaro is ready. He’s been training very well. I don’t know if he’ll be in the starting 11, but he’s been working very well. He’s been a very important player for us. If he plays tomorrow, I’m sure he will be as good as at the start of the season.
