Alvaro Morata is reinstated to the Chelsea starting XI for their Premier League Boxing Day meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Alvaro Morata has been reinstated to the Chelsea starting XI for their Premier League Boxing Day meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Spaniard served a one-game ban in the goalless draw with Everton having accrued five yellow cards but is slotted straight back into the team.

Antonio Conte has made three changes in all, with Morata joined in the starting lineup by Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill.

Chris Hughton, meanwhile, makes four changes, with Shane Duffy back from a ban, while Matias Schelotto comes in to make just his third start of the season.

Beram Kayal also gets the nod having only come off the bench against Watford, while Jose Izquierdo is also back in the starting lineup.

Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Alonso; Hazard, Morata
Subs: Caballero, Zappacosta, Ampadu, Drinkwater, Pedro, Willian, Batshuayi

Brighton & Hove Albion: Ryan; Schelotto, Duffy, Dunk, Suttner; Stephens, Propper; Kayal, March, Izquierdo; Hemed
Subs: Krul, Bruno, Goldson, Knockaert, Gross, Murray, Baldock
