"I'm just happy for them, for Alvaro, for Michy".

The striker watched from the stands at the Wanda Metropolitano as Morata scored his seventh goal in eight games since his arrival from Real Madrid. The changes made little difference though as only a small late flurry of attacking action was achieved, while at the other end Antonio Rudiger was needed on the line to clear and prevent Gabriel Jesus from doubling the City advantage. "It's easy for me playing with him".

'I have players who can make the right decisions.

Chelsea are reportedly confident star man Eden Hazard will sign a new contract at the club that will make him the Premier League's highest-paid player.

City remain a serious threat to Chelsea without Aguero.

City sit three points ahead of Chelsea ahead of the visit to Stamford Bridge and can go joint-top again with a win, having seen Manchester United move three points clear by beating Crystal Palace earlier in the day.

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. He's great in the air and Batshuayi can only match him for his finishing ability, without being as effective at the rest of the jobs that are paramount for a modern striker.

Chelsea have now completely recovered following a hard start to the season, but it's rarely been noted that they have been without their best player for this period.

"It was probably only before I went on holiday this summer that I wondered if I'd get a chance", said the 21-year-old.

Even after a last minute victor against Atletico Madrid and a title winning goal against West Brom, Batshuayi still isn't trusted.

To play another massive game two days later you must consider the fatigue in the legs of your players. I think he's the best.

"Every single player performed very well but I have to check their physical condition and then make the best decision".

Four of those goals have come in the last two games, with a strike against Atletico Madrid following hot on the heels of a hat-trick against Stoke.
