Chelsea travel to Brighton as tomorrow the Blues will face the Seagulls in the Premier League at the AMEX ArenA. Alvaro Morata and Pedro are both suspended after being shown a red card agains Norwich, while also Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill ruled out for the clash.
Conte said: “I think Ross is in a good physical condition. Yesterday he played 70 minutes. Tomorrow he is in the squad and comes with us. I don’t know if during the game I decide to give him the chance to play or wait, or if the game doesn’t ask this type of situation. He has to work with us in our idea. Now he is in the squad”.
“Cahill and Fabregas also, they are out. I need to check on a couple of other situations”.
When asked to provide further comments on Alvaro Morata’s display against Norwich, Conte added: “For sure in the Norwich game the player knows very well his mistake. There was frustration in the first yellow card. You must learn to control himself, because the second yellow card was for dissent. I agree with the player for the first yellow card, but not with him on the second yellow”.
“The striker this situation can happen. For Alvaro this is the first season he is playing a full season and that it might be the first season he is having these problems. You can score, the most important thing is to work hard for the team. Before if you stay on the bench you don’t have this type of situation. He has to move on, we trust him”.
