Official: Chelsea confirm major star has returned to training before Roma clash


Alvaro Morata has joined up with his team-mates in training ahead of Chelsea‘s mouthwatering clash with Roma on Wednesday evening.

The 24-year-old has been out of action after sustaining a hamstring injury in Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester City on September 30 in the lead-up to the international break.

Antonio Conte spoke about Morata’s hamstring problem after the Blues’ dismal defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday and was hopeful the Spaniard would be fit for the Champions League encounter in midweek.

And on Sunday afternoon, Chelsea’s official account tweeted out pictures of the striker taking part in training drills at the club’s training base in Cobham.

As you know very well we have three injured players. Morata, I hope to have him back very soon, I hope for the next game against Roma,’ Conte said after the disappointment at Selhurst Park.

‘[Danny] Drinkwater is progressing well but not ready yet.

‘We must have patience with him and this calf problem.’

Chelsea Join Race To Sign 17-Year Old League One Prodigy: Good Move For The Blues?

MK Dons defender Callum Brittain has raised quite a lot of eyebrows this season. The right-back, who was recently called up for England’s U20 side, earlier this month, set up two goals in the 5:1 over Italy and followed it up with a strong performance from the bench in the next game against the Czech Republic.

Brittain has been impressive in the League One this season, forming a key bond in the MK Dons backline. However, the defender is out of contract at the end of this season and big clubs have already started inquiries about the talented youngster.

Among those clubs are Premier League champions Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. The defending champions, in particular, are keen to sign the MK Dons youngster, as per reports from Dailymail.

Chelsea have failed to sustain a consistent form in the league this season, as they look to successfully defend their title. The Blues are currently stuttering at fifth place, behind the two Manchester clubs, Tottenham and even Watford. Head coach Antonio Conte will look to extend his defensive options at the back and that’s where Callum Brittain comes into play.
