Chelsea vs West Brom

Following the matches in the Premier League over Saturday and Sunday, Chelsea are now fifth in the division.

Antonio Conte’s side can go third on Monday night if they can beat West Brom at Stamford Bridge.

But how bad is Morata’s back?

On Sunday night, the Chelsea forward appeared in a bit of a strange video alongside his pregnant wife Alice Campello.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the video for Chelsea fans came when Morata picked up his wife during their dance routine.

That’s a sign that Morata’s back isn’t completely knackered.

Ti amoooo amichetto del cuore @alvaromorata ❤️
