"I'm very happy for him".

Wayne Bridge admits that he has been impressed by Alvaro Morata's fast start to life at Chelsea following his move from Real Madrid in the summer. Then it was Sergio Aguero and Manchester City in the Champions League and they made it hard for us. "But I think and hope he stays healthy".

"When you have good players it's more simple to find this link, to find this combination, to play together very well", Conte said.

They have scored 21 goals in their first six Premier League matches this season, and Conte also spoke highly of the expansive way in which Pep Guardiola sets up his teams.

Spain are likely to be without Alvaro Morata for their final World Cup qualifiers after he suffered an injury during Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City. Manchester City and United put five and four past them respectively and Chelsea will have to do similarly to show fans they can still match Manchester's might.

Soon after things went from bad to worse for the Blues as Morata limped off clutching his hamstring and Conte's decision to bring on the industrious Willian as his replacement rather than Michy Batshuayi was ineffective.

Do not spread the misleading news that Bali is not safe because Mount Agung is on the highest alert status. Despite the significant increase in estimated evacuees, the government said it was prepared.

Conte says he will wait to assess his players, but in a "massive game" it seems inconceivable Hazard would be left on the substitutes' bench.

Whoever comes out on top remains far from obvious, although whoever gains the upper hand at Stamford Bridge this Saturday may see their efforts rewarded greatly come May.

"He's really bang on and we were talking about Harry Kane but this lad has just come straight in". "His answer was fantastic and positive", said now coach Antonio Conte after the 2-1 victory.

"The last few games Fabian Delph has played and he had an outstanding performance. But I have to check the physical condition for every single player and then to make the best decision". I think he's the best.

"We came here to try to win this game and we did".

Manchester City tested Chelsea's defence with rapid, fluid counter-attacking play throughout the early stages and for much of the game.
