Chelsea looking to avoid sacking Conte this season

Morata's injury coincides with Chelsea's decision to allow Michy Batshuayi to join Borussia Dortmund on loan, though Conte refuses to look back over previous choices. The Brazilian's performance on his first Premier League start since October at Vicarage Road attracted widespread criticism, but Conte insisted that he has fully recovered from the knee inflammation that prolonged his absence from the team and is "in contention" for Monday's game. "Players like Morata are missing for a lot of time and we're struggling a lot to find the solution to the pain in his back". Yeah, I think we understand that, when you lose two games in a row, the situation is not simple. Now I think this is not important to say "we could have done this" or "we should have done that". 'If the club decides to send me away, it'll be because they're not happy with my work'.

"When you have this period with such poor results, you have to divide the responsibility between me, the players and the club", said Conte.

"You have to try to stop this bad run and to try to get three points against West Brom", the Italian said. Not easy. Especially in England.

He added: "Some of them have very long contracts, others have the issue of wanting to work at another of Europe's top clubs".

CHELSEA take on West Brom in the Premier League on Monday night - here is our predicted line-up for the Blues.

Cameco Corp (CCJ) Receives Consensus Rating of "Hold" from Brokerages
Currently Cameco Corp (NYSE: CCJ)'s shares owned by insiders are 0.2%, whereas shares owned by institutional owners are 70.1%. The basic materials company reported ($0.10) EPS for the quarter, missing the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.10 by ($0.20).

Andreas Christensen has arguably been our player of the season alongside Eden Hazard, whereas Marcos Alonso is a genuine goal-threat from left-wing-back.

"So a rest - not just for my players but in general - is important".

"I don't know. It's very hard to ever criticise our squad in terms of work-rate or commitment, is it a confidence thing?" Sarri knows who his best eleven are and has publicly spoken out about the transfer window, as he's very hesitant on bringing in a player that could either disrupt the chemistry or the pecking order of the club.

Manchester United have posted their biggest financial loss in eight years and according to The Times the deficit could be down to new tax reforms in the USA by President Donald Trump. Against Bournemouth we created chances to score but we weren't so clinical and we paid a lot. They can be backed at (1.10) to avoid defeat but it'll be a nice (1.90) to see them concede as they've been shaky at the back this season.
