Chelsea were buoyed by the return of their top scorer this season, Alvaro Morata to first team training on Monday.
The former Real Madrid attacker is keen to return to Antonio Conte’s setup this Wednesday after training for the first time with his teammates, as per the Daily Mail, since picking up the hamstring injury that has ruled him out since Chelsea’s home defeat to Manchester City.

It has been almost three weeks and two Premier League games since he departed, and in that period that Chelsea have scored a single goal, coming from summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko from a corner at the weekend.
Conte relied on Michy Batshuayi but was left disappointed by the Belgian’s performances and output in Morata’s absence.
Chelsea lead group E in the Champions League, a group that has European giants Atletico Madrid and AS Roma as well as Azeri side Qarabag.
Morata’s return will be a major and welcoming boost for Conte and his players.
