Alvaro Morata: Chelsea striker suspended after fifth yellow card of season

  • Morata withheld the ball from Bournemouth players eager to get the game started again

However, an Alvaro Morata stoppage-time victor ensured the Blues passage into the semi-final.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte feels that Alvaro Morata would be a huge miss for the Blues, as they prepare for their visit to Goodison Park. "I have different options and I have another day to make the best decision for this game".

"They've done very well against us lately, especially at Wembley but if I put myself in the Arsenal camp, I don't think it's ideal for them to play us over two legs".

The 17-year-old Wales worldwide started in the 2-1 win over the Cherries, finishing the match despite picking up a yellow card in the second minute at Stamford Bridge.

Conte was speaking before the semi-final draw which means Chelsea and Arsenal will meet in the last four, and the Italian is keen to progress in the competition.

Commenting on Morata's suspension, Conte said, "A big loss for us, but it happened".

He was booked after just the first minute of the game, but admirably kept his head above water in the quarter-final fixture.

Premier League leaders ManchesterCity also saw drama in their quarterfinal match, having it come down to penalties against Leicester City. But he showed great maturity and personality.

And on the possibility of bringing in new faces in the January transfer window, Conte said: "If there is the chance to improve the squad it would be good, but I am enjoying working with the players I have right now as they are showing great commitment and desire".

"You have to play 93 minutes with this danger".

Morata received his fifth yellow card in local tournaments this season during the Bournemouth match Wednesday and will be suspended for next game against Everton.

"I have spoken about this player before in an enthusiastic way".
