Huddersfield Town vs Chelsea lineups: Alvaro Morata misses out through injury

Huddersfield Town vs Chelsea lineups: Alvaro Morata misses out through injury

Chelsea were paired with Barcelona in Monday's draw, with the first fixture to take place at Stamford Bridge on February 20.

Antonio Conte has admitted that Alvaro Morata will play no part in Tuesday's game, with concerns over a back injury and fatigue.

Chelsea certainly learnt their lesson from their anaemic performance on Saturday when they lost 1-0 to West Ham by totalling controlling the proceedings at the Kirklees Stadium.

Conte has explained that tiredness is becoming a real issue with his team due to the packed schedule that accommodates domestic commitments as well as the Champions League.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: 'Olivier Giroud is not a substitute'
If you look at his career, and the amount of French caps he's won since he came here, he has not wasted his time. Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? "Personally I want him to stay at the club until the end of the season".

Willian was asked if Chelsea were back in the race for the title after an impressive win and Hazard had to remind him the gap was eleven points, not 14.

This was the first time that Eden Hazard - Chelsea's equivalent of Lionel Messi, you could say - came up against the Catalan giants.

Today's game provides a ideal opportunity for Chelsea to get back on the rails and back to winning ways. We know we are going to be spells in the game where we won't be on top. "We did pretty well today, scored three goals".

But while Conte concedes his side's defeat to Manchester City was understandable, their losses to Burnley, Crystal Palace and West Ham, the latter two both in relegation danger, have given the Blues boss major cause for concern.

"I think we had a great game, we had possession and tried to play the ball", Willian told BT Sport. "Now we have 11 points less than Manchester City, and they have to play tomorrow". "A good win, from the start we played good football".

Chelsea fans would be wise to check their next opponent's club history after making an awkward gaffe during their game with Huddersfield Town.

A Samuel Eto'o victor at Stamford Bridge and a 1-1 draw in the return fixture set Barca on their way to their second-ever Champions League crown, eventually defeating Arsenal in the final.
