Antonio Conte has revealed that Chelsea starlets Kyle Scott and Ethan Ampadu could be given a chance to impress after confirming that N'Golo Kante is likely to be on the sidelines for around three weeks.

Spain striker Morata has been battling to make a swift recovery from a hamstring injury during the worldwide break after limping out of Chelsea's 1-0 loss to Manchester City, while Kante picked up his problem on France duty last week. "I hope for the next game against Roma", Conte said. "From the previous scan, maybe he'll be out for around 20 days", Chelsea boss Conte said. It's a big loss for us because you know the importance of Kante in our team.

"We are going to do a scan next week to check Kante's situation, if he's improving". We must have patience with him and with this calf problem.

The 48-year-old told reporters: "We have to adapt a player in Luiz in midfield who is very important as a central defender". We don't have another player with the same characteristics.

"In midfield we only have Bakayoko and Fabregas available".

"We are not lucky in this period".

As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a good price on Chelsea winning this game and as a result, I think that is a bet we can avoid.

"It will be very hard play Fabregas and Bakayoko for seven games in a row and we must hope we don't get any more injuries during this time".

"When I chose to utilise him in midfield against Tottenham we played with three central midfielders".

Alvaro Morata is ruled out for the trip to Palace after suffering a hamstring injury during the defeat to Manchester City just before the global break.

Morata didn't play for Spain over the last fortnight, but Conte hopes he will return to face Roma at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

"The fans will be pleased to see him back on the field but I would urge people to give him the benefit of the doubt in his first few games he comes back into as he has been out for over six weeks".
