Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says he hopes his side keep the momentum as they return to league action away to Middlesbrough on Sunday after the international break.
Prior to the international break, Chelsea won their last five league games.
“It was a pity to stop our run for the internationals but this is normal and now we must find a way to restart in the right way,” Conte said in his press conference on Friday.
The former Juventus coach who revealed that there are no current injury worries in his team, also gave the latest on John Terry, Kurt Zouma, Oscar and Cesc Fabregas.
“All my players are available this weekend. Costa had a slight injury against Everton but now his physical condition is good,” Conte said.
“John Terry is in good shape and he can fit into this system. Kurt Zouma is showing good form in training but he still needs time to be his best after a bad injury. Oscar’s future is Chelsea and he is an important player in the squad. He is a great player and for me, he is staying. Fabregas is in a good shape and is available for Sunday.”
On the Premier League October Best Coach and Player Awards won by him and Eden Hazard respectively, Conte said: “It is fantastic that I won the Manager of the Month award and credits to all my staff and team.
“I am pleased for Eden because he is playing fantastic football and working very well in training. He is a great player. It is important that Hazard is showing his talent but this is not the time to compare him with others.”Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
