Eden Hazard struggled when utilised as a false 9 in the loss against Manchester City on Sunday and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed he could turn to Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud for Saturday’s visit of Palace.

Conte refused to reveal who might start up front for Chelsea but insists he has utmost confidence in Morata and Giroud.

“Tomorrow we have this option to play with Giroud or Morata as No 9,” Conte said.

“For us it is an important game, we want to try and get three points but we will see tomorrow what is my final decision.

“I trust for sure. I am working with both to bring them into the best form and physical condition.

“Morata is coming back from a strange injury in his back and was out for a long time and Giroud is in good form now. He is working very well every day and is in good physical condition, but for sure I trust in all of my players.”
