Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has defended his decision to start with forward, Eden Hazard on the bench during the Blues' 1-1 draw with Huddersfield in Wednesday's Premier League clash.

The Blues' chances of qualifying for the Champions League have been dashed with the point, especially with Tottenham Hotspur securing a victory against Newcastle United.

Ex-Chelsea star Tony Cascarino still believes in Alvaro Morata and has informed him to shoot on sight to score more goals.

Meanwhile, the FA have charged Chelsea over the conduct of their players at half-time against Huddersfield.

Chelsea were back level 13 minutes later when a defensive clearance struck Marcos Alonso on the head and rebounded into the net.

Juve can not afford the £60m that Chelsea want to cover the amount they spent on Morata last summer from Real, but want a deal that will enable them to bring in the cash from other sales. Now it is right for everyone to be focused on the present and finish this season in the best possible way.

"If you have the passion, desire and spirit you can compete sometimes with top, top quality". Conte's men have been installed as the hot 1/5 favourites to make it five wins on the spin - for the first time this season - against Huddersfield.

Huddersfield soared into 16th place on 37 points, four clear of 18th-placed Swansea.

However, Chelsea have won their last four Premier League games, which has kept the pressure on both Tottenham and Liverpool.

Chelsea are now fifth in the Premier League table, and sit two points behind London neighbours Tottenham, with a further three points behind Liverpool who they defeated last season.
