Alvaro Morata Suffers Hamstring Injury vs

Antonio Conte says Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard are available to face Man City

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was back on familiar ground on Saturday, singing the praises of Kevin De Bruyne after the Belgian midfielder scored the goal that put his club back at the top of the Premier League.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte suggested his team's midweek workload at Atletico Madrid was a mitigating factor in the 1-0 Premier League loss to Manchester City.

Chelsea Lineups: 31 Ederson, 2 Walker, 5 Stones, 30 Otamendi, 18 Delph, 17 De Bruyne, 25 Fernandinho, 21 Silva, 19 Sané, 33 Jesus, 7 Sterling.

Meanwhile, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte makes three changes from the side that beat Stoke City last weekend.

City were again the better team in the opening stages of the second period and finally took the lead on 67 minutes when the brilliant De Bruyne smashed home with his left foot from 25 yards.

The visitors' pressure began to grow shortly afterwards, though, with Silva and Jesus both coming close in quick succession before the breakthrough finally arrived in some style.

City coach Pep Guardiola said the way the team played was as important as the result, with City having nearly 70 percent possession in both halves and creating the best of the chances.

Midway through the half, Alvaro Morata was forced off due to a hamstring injury was Willian replaced the Blues record signing.

"I am not surprised because I know Alvaro very well".

Manchester City will be without Sergio Aguero when they visit the Premier League champions after the Argentine was involved in a auto accident in Amsterdam when a taxi taking him to the airport crashed into a column on the side of the road.

City dominated the bulk of the match, and De Bruyne finally gave the visitors a deserved lead after 67 minutes, firing a attractive shot into the top corner.
