Alvaro Morata misses out with a back problem as Chelsea visit Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

Morata's absence sees Eden Hazard switch to a centre-forward role, while Willian and Pedro also come into the XI as head coach Antonio Conte shuffles his pack following the 1-0 defeat at West Ham United.

Victor Moses and Antonio Rudiger also start for the Blues, with Cesc Fabregas among those dropping to the bench.

As for hosts Huddersfield, head coach David Wagner has made just the one change from the team that started Saturday's 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at the John Smith's Stadium.

That alteration comes in attack as Danny Williams replaces Collin Quaner, meaning that record signing Steve Mounie again leads the line with support from Tom Ince.

Huddersfield Town: Lossl; Smith, Jorgensen, Schindler, Lowe; Hogg, Mooy; Williams, Ince, Kachunga; Mounie
Subs: Coleman, Whitehead, Cranie, Van La Parra, Depoitre, Quaner, Hadergjonaj

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