Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has been out of action since being sent off in Chelsea’s FA Cup replay win over Norwich on January 17th.
The striker has been struggling with a back problem.
Morata’s return to the team has been delayed due to the death of his close friend in a road accident.
According to a report on Daily Mail, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has granted Morata some time away from treatment following the death of his friend.
Morata has struggled for form in recent weeks. He has failed to score since Chelsea’s Boxing Day home win over Brighton.
Chelsea fans would be hoping he returns to form quickly and start scoring again for the club.
