Chelsea star injured v Man City

This comes after Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero was injured in the Netherlands after being involved in a vehicle crash, with Man City taking on the Premier League champions tomorrow at Stamford Bridge.

"If he was able to play one game like the last game against Atletico Madrid it means he's ready now to play with continuity", Conte told reporters on Friday. "I'd like to know why he wasn't a regular starter at Juventus and Real Madrid, I think we'll have a definitive answer at the end of the season". Liverpool can also overtake the Blues, should they dispatch Newcastle tomorrow. "They are a very strong team with a clear idea of what their coach wants".

"When you have to play a massive game only (three) days later, you must consider the fatigue in the legs of your players".

Conte simply doesn't trust Morata's alternatives and as a result Chelsea now find themselves six points off the Manchester clubs in a competitive title race.

"It's a muscular problem", the Italian said.

"He said to me, "Coach, I prefer to stop myself otherwise I risk a bad injury". The doctor now in the next days has to check the situation, but I don't think he's available for the [Spain] national team".

Russian Opposition Leader Alexei Navalny is Detained Again
The Interior Ministry said in a statement Friday that Navalny was detained because of his calls for unsanctioned rallies. The activist was due to speak at pre-election opposition rally in Nizhny Novgorod on Friday.

Hazard is due to jet off with Belgium for their World Cup qualifying fixtures against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Gibraltar.

Asked why he favoured Willian to replace Morata rather than Michy Batshuayi, Conte replied: "It was a simple tactical decision".

"I think for us he showed in every game great talent and to be a really good player".

After the game, Conte seemed confident that the issue was minor. "It's a simple tactical decision". My task is to try and push him to be decisive in every moment, in every game. If he can elevate himself further, then he will be pivotal to Chelsea's chances of retaining the league and advancing into the final stages of the Champions League. Everything. We did this today. When there is a room to travel to go see a game.

The report claims that the Premier League champions are prepared to make Hazard the highest-paid player in the league by offering him a new £300,000 a week deal.

I'm predicting a 3-2 win to Chelsea FC.
