Newcastle boss Benitez: Conte must know Chelsea problems nothing new

Ross Barkley is set to start for Chelsea against Newcastle in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday as Antonio Conte seeks to "accelerate" his return to peak condition amid a growing injury list.

Chelsea will be without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois (ankle) and striker Alvaro Morata (back) for their FA Cup fourth-round meeting with Newcastle.

Asked when the pair will return, he responded, "I don't know, it is very hard to tell you today how many days they need to come back". Morata has a problem in his back and Courtois took a kick in his ankle.

"He is out. Today he was with the doctor with the intention to have a scam to evaluate his injury, but I don't think we are talking about a serious injury". I think to watch the game many times is important to understand positive things and negative things and to try to improve your team especially when you lose. [Cesc] Fabregas trained today and tomorrow I will check his physical condition and form'.

Attack: Chelsea have been handed a blow as Alvaro Morata has been ruled out after failing to recover from a back injury that's kept him out of the last three games.

"When I don't sleep I usually continue to work with the computer also because I don't want to create problems with my wife", he added.

"We started very well, played a good first half and in the second half I saw a lot of balance". Nothing has changed (on his future).There was the summer, then after the summer and nothing has changed. I'm happy to work with my players, I'm happy to work for this club. Conte said a decision over whether the player departs on loan is down to Chelsea's hierarchy: "To sell, to buy, to go on loan, the club will inform you about these situations", italian manager said.

The 22-time England worldwide came on for the injured Willian in the first-half but failed to inspire the Blues to victory, with Arsenal moving on to face Manchester City in the final in February. "He is ready to play, and play every game".

It's a win-win situation if you stay in the Premier League, so that is something we have to consider.
