Chelsea and Roma are getting ready to play in the Champions League on Wednesday as Antonio Conte, leading his team at home against a Roma team coming off a defeat to Napoli, are looking to regain their momentum after their own league loss to Crystal Palace.
Conte spoke in his pre-match press conference: “Morata is available, he was at training but you won’t hear me say if he will start or not.
We are very aware of our situation, especially given the last loss. It becomes complicated when players like Morata or Kanté are out injured, it’s not simple to replace them.
Sometimes the players are not used to playing every three days, and the risk is always the same. Against City, for example, Morata had a problem, but the critics would have been out if I didn’t play him.
I think it is always good to return to matches immediately after a loss. This will be an important match and we know how hard the Champions league is. Roma is a good team and we know they have good players.
There is always a lot of pressure, even more playing against an Italian team because they are very well disciplined. In the past, it was thought I was close to coaching Roma and it was a source of pride for me.
We are only talking about the past, after Garcia though the giallorossi brought two great coaches in, Spalletti and then Di Francesco.”
