Man Utd stars overlooked in Premier League's Team of 2016

Dec 22, 2016, 00:11

Asked how they will cope with such a situation in the absence of two key players, he said: "We have to cope with that, you have situations like this during the season, but other teams also have their problems".

Chelsea granted Willian compassionate leave in October to remain in Brazil after the global break and attend the funeral of Dona Zeze, who died aged 57 following a two-year battle with cancer.

Belgian global Batshuayi is yet to start in an EPL league game since moving to Chelsea from Marseille in the summer. Since that humiliating 3-0 loss to Arsenal almost 3 months ago, the Blues have gone on an unprecedented 11 game win streak in the Premier League, the most in the club's history. "It has been very hard emotionally".

"After she died, I stayed in Brazil for a week".

The young Belgian hasn't had a huge amount of first-team opportunities since making the move from Marseille to Chelsea this summer, but Matic is confident that he is a quality player.

"I am not even to go down the road of Cesc playing the false number nine, something he has done before but suffice to say there are a few options available to Antonio". "That's what I want to do".

Costa has been in superb scoring form this season, netting 13 goals this term as he leads the way in the Premier League this season, and he has already surpassed his tally for last season.

However, Conte is keen to keep the Belgium worldwide on as back-up for Diego Costa, who is suspended for Boxing Day's meeting with Bournemouth.

The 27-year-old Spain global has been involved in every minute of top-flight football for Chelsea this season and has been a pillar of the Blues defence.

"We have tried to forget last season".
