Champions League: Chelsea ready to take on Atletico Madrid - Conte

Champions League: Chelsea ready to take on Atletico Madrid - Conte”

After making his first start of the season in the League Cup last week, the Belgium global was again named as a substitute for Chelsea's 4-0 Premier League win over Stoke City on Saturday as he continues to recover from a fractured ankle. It is not easy to win away games against Stoke, this game is always hard.

Mark Hughes doesn't mince words when discussing Stoke's horrendous defensive showing in their 4-0 loss to Chelsea. I think now he's involved totally in our style of football, in our idea.

He is a very good friend of mine.

"This league is not easy, above all for the strikers because during the game there is a lot of physical contact, and you must be prepared for this type of game because referees don't whistle a lot and that's good for the game".

The 24-year-old has showed that he has had no problems in adapting to the rigours of the Premier League after he helped to lift Chelsea up into third place in the Premier League table.

Morata has been in great form since arriving in England.

Eden Hazard is in line to start against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League but Antonio Conte admitted he's adopting a cautious approach with the Belgian. The players are fit and now it's important to rest and recover well for the game on Wednesday and not forgetting we have another tough game on Saturday against Manchester City'.

'After his injury and surgery you need time, and if I make the decision [to start him] it is because I think he is ready. "He's nearly ready to play but if I make this decision it will be because I'm comfortable with it", the Italian added.

"I remember very well last season when we struggled a lot to win and we won at the end of the game".
