Morata confident of ending goal drought

Alvaro Morata is without a goal in four games for Chelsea but the Spaniard is confident that he will emerge from his rut sooner rather than later.
Speaking ahead of today’s game against Leicester at Stamford Bridge, Morata said: “It’s difficult to get something here (for opposition teams) and between now and the end of the season we need to win even more games at our home.
“I hope today I can score and help the team. As long as I keep working and trying the goal will arrive and the bad period will end.
“It’s an important game, we are third but we want to finish higher up the table so we need to win our games.”

Conte: I won’t quit Chelsea in the summer

Earlier this week Antonio Conte reiterated his commitment to Chelsea as he insisted he will not walk away from the club at the end of the season. 
There has been speculation that Conte will leave the club in the summer but the Blues’ Italian boss says the only way he will leave is if he is sacked.
“Everything is possible but I have another year of contract and in this case I think the club has to decide to send me away,” Conte said. “We are not talking about my work. The history of Chelsea is very clear. It is normal for the manager of the club to have this situation. If you won last season the League and reached the final of the FA Cup, this is the history of this club for the manager.
“I am fully committed to Chelsea, to work with my players to try also to improve the club in the football aspect. I am fully committed in this and I am happy in what I am doing now and what I did in the past. But I am more happy in what I am doing now.”
