It is heartbreaking news for Alvaro Morata as his best friend died in a auto crash earlier this week, The Daily Mail reports.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus forward has 10 goals in 20 Premier League appearances this season but hasn't scored since Boxing Day against Brighton.

"But when you are sure about your work and that you are doing everything to improve this club, I am very relaxed, calm and I don't have this type of worry".

Speaking to Sky Sports after Wednesday night's game, Conte said: "I think he has a lot of space for improvement".

He has wanted to go after top, proven worldwide frontmen, but the club are apprehensive about giving him much cash.

"We started very well, played a good first half and in the second half I saw a lot of balance".

With questionable enquiries being rejected for West Ham's Andy Carroll and 37-year-old Peter Crouch, it seems that Antonio Conte has settled for Roma striker and Premier League champion Edin Dzeko to solve the current goalscoring dilemma.

"After a bad injury you need a bit of time to be fit 100%".

Muguruza shocked by Hsieh
Top-seeded Simona Halep cruised to a 6-2 6-2 win over Eugenie Bouchard to keep her quest for a maiden Grand Slam title on course. Spaniard Muguruza, 24, came from 5-2 down against Hsieh to force a first-set tie-break but eventually lost in straight sets.

"I am not anxious".

"For this reason, sometimes I don't sleep, especially when you have to face hard situations, and we have to try to invent something before the game or during the game".

Conte said: "We have to face great difficulties. He is available on Sunday".

The Blues will host Rafael Benitez's side in search for a victory to bounce back from the disappointment of being knocked out by of the Carabao Cup by Arsenal on Wednesday [24 January]. This competition is very hard.

"I go in another room, the living room and then sometimes I start to work, watch the game or try to find a new solution".

"If you want to accelerate this process, he (Barkley) has to play, not only have the training session".

"In the past it was the same for the other coaches, and I don't see a difference between them and me and the other coaches that managed this situation".
