Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: 'Alvaro Morata fitness is improving'

"We want to try to go through to the next round and to try to fight for every competition".

Then Barca visit Stamford Bridge on Tuesday and the Blues will be desperate to stay alive in the Champions League after missing out on the competition last season.

Trevoh Chalobah is among the Chelsea youngsters included in the squad for the FA Cup fifth-round tie against Hull City.

But Conte, who agreed to a request from club captain Gary Cahill to give his players three days off to rest and recuperate ahead of the West Brom game, insists there are no problems at Stamford Bridge when it comes to work rate and application.

At a press conference, the 48-year-old told reporters: "Alvaro has been training with us regularly, every day".

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is determined to get back to full fitness ahead of the club's huge Champions League clash with Barcelona next week. His physical condition is improving.

There would be draconian cuts directed against the jobs, living standards and benefits of federal government workers. Some critics say the tax is regressive because lower-income people pay a larger share of their income on the levy.

Chelsea are fourth in the league and 19 points adrift of leaders City with 11 games left, but Conte said a good run was vital to maintain their advantage over Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal who are directly below them in the league.

With Olivier Giroud having signed in January, and Eden Hazard also able to play up front, there is now a growing need for Morata to get back amongst the goals, with Barcelona presenting him with the ideal opportunity. "For a lot of time [this season], we tried to play with Hazard as a No. 9". We also have Chalobah's brother, Sterling and Scott, they are coming with us for the game tomorrow.

"I think Chelsea's future is very brilliant to have these young players".

"We have in front of us two weeks that will be very tough". Don't forget that we are playing with a system [3-4-2-1] from last season.

Tiemoue Bakayoko, David Luiz and Ross Barkley are unavailable to Conte as they are all out through injury.
