Misfiring strikers continue to give Antonio Conte cause for concern

Morata has a fine record in the Champions League knockout stages from his Juventus days

He aims to finish the season in the best way to go to the World Cup, but also has the backing of those responsible for the club that see in him as a basic piece of the team.

"In every game I have to decide the starting XI and not the players, because the players are the players and the manager is the manager".

Chelsea have identified Samuel Umtiti as the flawless replacement for David Luiz, who will be sold this summer, after a show of indiscipline under Antonio Conte this season. He wanted to play and I understood this. After watching his old club, Juventus, progress last week against Tottenham in very similar circumstances to those Chelsea face - winning away after drawing the home leg - he pointed out that his side lacks something the Old Lady has in abundance.

"You just can't leave Willian out of the team", former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton told BT Sport after Chelsea's win over Palace. "You hope to finish the game more relaxed".

The introduction of Wilfried Zaha after six games out with a knee injury boosted Crystal Palace in the second half but by the time he set up Patrick van Aanholt for a 90th-minute consolation goal, there was no way back for the Eagles.

Primarily known for his sheer physical prowess, Umtiti is also someone, who's perfectly suited for the Premier League's high-paced game. My team has not got great experience but players who need that experience: people like [Andreas] Christensen, [Tiemoué] Bakayoko are young, or we have players playing for the first time or the second time in the Champions League.

Against United and Palace, Willian completed eight dribbles in each match, having not completed over seven in any other EPL game this season.

But Hodgson dismissed suggestions that he could have let Zaha start the game.

"It started very early about the manager and recruitment".

Besiktas is dreaming of becoming the first team to overturn a five-goal deficit in the UEFA competition when it hosts Bayern Munich on Wednesday, although restoring its pride will likely be enough after a chastening 5-0 first-leg defeat in Munich. I think that on Sunday he was well but, at the same time, it was right not to take a risk.
