Antonio Conte makes honest admission about new Chelsea FC signing

Chelsea

Chelsea will also be without Thibaut Courtois and Willian when they host Newcastle in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

With questionable enquiries being rejected for West Ham's Andy Carroll and 37-year-old Peter Crouch, it seems that Antonio Conte has settled for Roma striker and Premier League champion Edin Dzeko to solve the current goalscoring dilemma.

It is heartbreaking news for Alvaro Morata as his best friend died in a vehicle crash earlier this week, The Daily Mail reports.

"I don't know how close they are to returning".

"Morata and Courtois are out, Morata has a problem in his back and Courtois took a kick in his ankle.it is very hard to tell you today how many days they need to come back." .

Central defender Florian Lejeune in back in training after a foot problem, while full-back Jesus Gamez continues his recovery from ankle surgery.

Willy Caballero should continue between the sticks but Conte faces a new selection dilemma regarding the make-up of his attack without Morata.

He has made two substitute appearances, having last played for Everton in May due to a hamstring problem: "After a bad injury you need a bit of time to be fit, 100 per cent", Conte said.

"Willian is out. Today with the doctor, he will have a scan to evaluate his injury".

Willian was withdrawn from the Blues' Carabao Cup defeat on Wednesday night to Arsenal, coming off with a hamstring injury in the first half.

"It is a pity because we had a good run in this competition, it is a pity for me, the players and fans".

"Fabregas trained with us today and tomorrow I will check his physical condition and form".

Conte, who won the Premier League in his first season in charge last term, was asked if he is happy and he replied: "Yes, I'm happy". Conte said a decision over whether the player departs on loan is down to Chelsea's hierarchy: "To sell, to buy, to go on loan, the club will inform you about these situations", italian manager said. "We don't have other options".

"It's only a small injury but Willian is out of the Newcastle game as well".
