Antonio Conte hopeful over Alvaro Morata injury

Antonio Conte hopeful over Alvaro Morata injury

That was how the game ended as City moved top on the log due to goal difference but level on points with Manchester United with 19 points.

City have been in stunning form since the start of the season, but Hazard believes beating Atletico - Champions League finalists in two of the past four seasons - shows Chelsea can compete with anyone.

"I'm so happy for him".

Welcome to our live coverage of Chelsea-Manchester City. The worldwide break follows, with Chelsea resuming on October 14 at Crystal Palace.

"With the ball, he can take up different positions and assist both short and long".

It was Chelsea's second home defeat this season after their 3-2 opening day loss to Burnley.

Conte hinted he was considering fielding the same team as in Madrid after a confidence-boosting result, but there is one enforced change. Midfielder Danny Drinkwater (calf) the only definite injury absentee.

The Italian said Hazard was different to attackers such as Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, who were more relentless in their pursuit of goals.

Will Conte be smiling at the end of the game today?

45' - COURTOIS SAVE - Fernandinho heads at goal from point blank range from De Bruyne's corner, and Courtois palms it away brilliantly to keep City in the game just before half time. "I think he makes [City take] a step forward and people feel comfortable having him on the pitch".

"Of course this season they play in Europe".

"We played against a really good team. I like to watch his game".

City was without Sergio Aguero, who broke a rib in a auto crash, but dominated at Stamford Bridge before the Belgian's late goal kept the leaders unbeaten.

"At his previous clubs he didn't play regularly but now he has the responsibility and pressure and he's responding well".

Morata's injury forced Conte to change his plans and play without a conventional No.9 as Willian partnered Eden Hazard up front, but Chelsea's coach is hopeful his star striker can use the October worldwide break to recover without missing matches.
