Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte has confirmed that striker Alvaro Morata will be absent for their clash against Huddersfield town on Tuesday (12th December) due to a combination of fatigue and a back injury.

Morata played the full 90 minutes when Chelsea visited West Ham on Saturday, but has been ruled out of their midweek game, as Conte faces a problem with his squad depth over the busy festive period that is likely to offer a game every three days.

The former Real Madrid star has missed a few games this season due to a hamstring injury and Conte will be hoping this current layoff will not be one where he will be absent for more than a few games. Morata has scored ten goals for Chelsea since he arrived in the summer.

With the absence of his star frontman, Conte could turn to Belgian Michy Batshuayi to lead the line or could deploy Pedro or Eden Hazard in a false Nine position.

Conte will also be without defender, David Luiz for the match against Huddersfield, as he continues to recover from a knee injury, which has seen him miss the last four games.

Meanwhile, midfielder Danny Drinkwater has been named in the travelling contingent as he has fought off a bout of illness.

Chelsea will be looking to get all three points in this match following their defeat to West Ham, even though Conte has claimed they are out of the running for the Premier League Title.

50 million pounds-rated Chilwell still has less than five years left on his Leicester City contract which is scheduled to run out in the summer of 2024.

The England international made his debut for the Three Lions during an international friendly with Switzerland last year.

Ben Chilwell came through the ranks at Leicester City before making his first team debut.

He has represented the Foxes on 96 occasions.

Chelsea have a transfer ban from world football’s governing body FIFA but that has not stopped the Blues from battling the other teams for the English left-back.

The Blues were handed a two-window transfer ban for breaking the rules relating to the signing of underage players.

Chelsea have appealed the ruling and they are hopeful that the ban will be lifted for them to sign players like Ben Chilwell.

They have already served the transfer ban for a transfer window.
