The former Juventus star will miss out again when the Blues take on West Brom on Monday night, with Olivier Giroud likely to be handed his first Chelsea start.

He has this problem, we are trying to find a solution to solve the pain in his back. "And I'm very happy here", he said.

Alvaro Morata has admitted he would always be open to a return to Real Madrid in the future.

Add Alvaro Morata's injury/absence to the ever-growing list of concerns which also happens to include Antonio Conte getting potentially fired, Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois's future, Tiemoue Bakayoko struggling to cope with the Premier League, among others and things are going from bad to worse to just downright horrible for the reigning Champions.

Conte won't be sacked for now – reports

Morata has missed some big chances in crucial games since the turn of the new year and fans have been turning on their record signing. We all hoped that the injury would be nothing serious, but Conte has revealed that he has no idea when he will be welcoming back the 25-year-old. "But Madrid is always Madrid", said the striker to Espacio Reservado.

Morata has not appeared since a red card against Norwich in the FA Cup on January 17 and has not scored since Boxing Day. 'We took a decision and we have to focus on the present to finish the season in the best way possible'.

'I hope to count on him for the game against West Brom, ' said Conte.

Christensen, who trained away from the team on Friday, has become crucial to the balance of Conte's side. 'He is an important player and he is having a fantastic season'. I repeat: my commitment is totally for this club, like that of my players'.
