Newsflash: Morata in contention

Antonio Conte has said there is a possibility Alvaro Morata could return from injury against Southampton tomorrow.

The Spanish striker missed the midweek win over Huddersfield with a back problem, but speaking at his pre-match press conference Conte said he is in contention to feature against the Saints at Stamford Bridge.

'He’s better,' said Conte. 'He trained with us two days ago, again yesterday and also today. He has this pain in his back but he’s in contention for tomorrow’s game.'

David Luiz is still out due to a knee injury but the rest of the squad are available for selection.
