Crystal Palace vs Chelsea 14 October 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says France midfielder N'Golo Kante will be sidelined for three weeks after suffering a hamstring injury on global duty.

Fourth placed Chelsea are six points behind Manchester City after the champions lost 1-0 to the Premier League leaders in their last match before the global break.

Michy Batshuayi could replace Morata in the starting XI, or manager Antonio Conte could use Eden Hazard, Pedro or even Cesc Fabregas as a false 9.

"We are going to do a scan next week to check his situation to see if he is improving".

'[Going by] the previous scan maybe....around 20 days...25 days, ' said Conte.

As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a good price on Chelsea winning this game and as a result, I think that is a bet we can avoid.

"In Kante's situation you have to have another scan to understand the situation very well", Conte said.

"Drinkwater is progressing well, but he will take time to recover". We must have patience with him, with his calf problem.

"We may have to adapt some defenders into midfielders". In midfield we now have only Bakayoko and Fabregas available and we have to approach seven games in one month.

Alvaro Morata is ruled out for the trip to Palace after suffering a hamstring injury during the defeat to Manchester City just before the worldwide break.

"I hope to have him back very soon, I hope for the next game against Roma", the Chelsea boss confirmed.

Morata (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Crystal Palace, but he may be able to return Wednesday to face Roma in the Champions League.

"I have two years on my contract with Chelsea left to go and I'm happy to work for this club, with my players and I like to work with my players".
