Alvaro Morata to miss Chelsea’s to Crystal Palace
The 24-year-old is expected to be back when Chelsea face Roma in the Champions League
Chelsea will be without striker Alvaro Morata when they travel to Selhurst Park to face struggling Crystal Palace.
Morata, 24, limped out of Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to City at Stamford Bridge and subsequently missed the international break with Spain.
Conte says he hopes to have Morata back for Roma but Kante needs to have a scan next week. He says the midfielder is a big loss. #CFC

The former Real Madrid striker had a scan last week, with Spain’s medical staff claiming he had suffered a grade two hamstring injury.
He is however expected to return for Chelsea’s Champions League match against Roma on Wednesday.
