​Conte rules Morata and Fabregas out of Arsenal clash

Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas will definitely miss Chelsea’s EFL Cup semi-final second leg at Arsenal on Wednesday, Antonio Conte has confirmed.

Chelsea make the trip to Emirates Stadium hoping to book a place in the final, with the goalless draw in the first leg teeing up the return match perfectly.

But Morata, who missed Saturday’s 4-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion through suspension, will be forced to sit out once again due to injury.

And Fabregas is still nursing a hamstring injury, meaning he will be unable to feature against his former team. 

Speaking to reporters at his pre-match news conference on Tuesday, Conte said: “Morata has a problem in his back and is injured.

“Morata and Fabregas are definitely out, they’re not available for us. Then I have to check a couple of situations [in terms of injuries to other players].”
