Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte says striker Alvaro Morata will play an important role in the final stretch of the English Premier League, EPL.
He also said Morata now has the chance to boost his call up for Spain’s squad for the World Cup this year.
Chelsea hosts Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. Yeah
Morata scored the last of his 10 league goals in this campaign in December as Chelsea beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0.
The 25-year-old was left out of Julen Lopetegui’s Spain squad for last week’s international friendlies against Germany and Argentina, but Conte said Morata had used the time during his enforced break to raise the level of his game.
“These are our targets. Sunday is an important game because if we win we go very close – otherwise we continue to stay not so close and with seven games to go it will be difficult to take a place in the Champions League.”
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois could miss the game after picking up a hamstring injury on international duty with Belgium while defender David Luiz is still battling a knee injury.
