Alvaro Morata ruled out for Chelsea's clash with Huddersfield

Striker Alvaro Morata will miss Chelsea's Premier League clash at Huddersfield through fatigue and a back issue.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is poised to rotate his options as he seeks an immediate response to the loss at West Ham, but Morata is not available.

The Blues boss said: "Morata is out, because he's a bit tired and there is a problem in his back. He is out.''

Midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko could also be rested after his half-time substitution at the London Stadium, while midfielder Danny Drinkwater (illness) and defender David Luiz (knee) could come into contention, with both being monitored.

Provisional squad: Courtois, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Fabregas, Drinkwater, Kante, Hazard, Pedro, Bakayoko, Moses, Kenedy, Zappacosta, Willian, Batshuayi, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Clarke-Salter, Sterling, Eduardo, Ampadu.
