Chelsea will be back to Premier League action as the Blues are geared up to face Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the Italian revealed that there’s no injury threat regarding tomorrow’s fixture.

Gary Cahill who missed the last game against Spurs will be available for tomorrow’s game, but Conte says he’d have to ask him first.

“I want to speak with him tomorrow before I take a decision. But in this case, I am very happy is he able to play tomorrow,” Conte said.

Conte admitted that he knows the starting lineup he has in mind for tomorrow’s game but claims he’d check their physical conditions after the hectic game against Tottenham before he makes his decision.

He said: “I have in my mind the starting XI but tomorrow I want to check the physical condition of every single player.”
