Chelsea news: Antonio Conte reveals full extent of SHOCKING Alvaro Morata injury

Striker Morata was sidelined by the injury earlier in 2018 but has returned to the Chelsea fold in recent weeks.The Spaniard scored his first goal of the calendar year in the FA Cup victory over Leicester earlier this month.Morata finds himself in competition with Olivier Giroud for the striker spot at Stamford Bridge with the Frenchman having joined the club from Arsenal in January.But it was almost a case of Morata not returning this season.“He needed to rest, and then to have hard sessions of work to find the best physical condition to prepare himself for the final weeks of the season,” Conte said.“He had this problem in his back. It was a serious problem because I didn’t know how long his recovery it would take: one day, one month, the whole season.“He solved the problem; our medical department was very good to get him in the best physical condition to solve this problem.“At the start of this period, he continued to feel a bit of pain in his back, but now he is ready. He is totally fit.”Chelsea host Tottenham tomorrow (4pm) though there’s no guarantee Conte will start either Morata or Giroud.Eden Hazard has occasionally led the line though not always with huge success.Chelsea sit fifth in the Premier League, five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham.
