N'Golo Kante and Alvaro Morata unlikely to feature against Crystal Palace

The Blues are waiting to find out the extent of the hamstring problem Kante suffered on global duty with France, while Morata, who limped off with a similar problem in the defeat to Manchester City, won't be rushed back into action.

That includes home and away clashes against Roma in the UEFA Champions League (on October 18 and 31, respectively) as well as Premier League matches with Crystal Palace, Watford and Bournemouth and a Carabao Cup fixture against Everton.

Chelsea will look to bounce back from their defeat to Manchester City when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

The double injury blow will rob Chelsea boss Antonio Conte of two of his most important players just when he needs to get his title defence back on track after losing 1-0 at home to rivals City two weeks ago.

Saturday's Premier League clash with bottom-of-the-table Palace should present few problems despite the absence of Kante, but the European clashes against in-form Roma could prove a greater challenge without the former Leicester City player's influence.

Chelsea may look to loan out rebel forward Charly Musonda in the January transfer window following his weird outburst at them.

Musonda wrote: "You sacrifice, you work hard, harder, you give more than what's expected, and often more than you can, because you love what you do and clearly more than you should".

We should get Danny Drinkwater back from his latest injury, though where his fitness levels may be, not to mention his acclimatization to Conte's system, is anyone's guess at the moment.

Antonio Conte made Sandro a top target in the summer but was unsuccessful in his attempts to draw him to Stamford Bridge.
