Chelsea were dealt a triple injury blow on Wednesday evening although none are believed to be serious.
Speaking after his sides 3-3 draw with Roma in the Champions League, Antonio Conte responded to questions about David Luiz, who was enraged following his withdrawal on the hour mark. The Chelsea boss revealed his substitution was more of a precaution due to a calf complaint: "I think it was a good decision to try to protect him. Also, because, I repeat, in this moment it's very important to protect the players. Then I changed the system and I preferred to change." Tiemoue Bakayoko played the full 90 minutes, but Conte confirmed the midfielder has a minor groin issue while Gary Cahill finished the game with his head and chin wrapped in a bandage following a cut, although it’s "nothing serious" and the captain will be okay for Saturday. Victor Moses and N’Golo Kante [both hamstring] will miss the game against 4th placed London rivals Watford at Stamford Bridge. Oct 19 - 5:39 AM
