Team News: Morata restored to starting lineup

Alvaro Morata is restored to Chelsea's starting lineup for the Premier League meeting with Huddersfield Town - one of six changes made by Antonio Conte.

Alvaro Morata has been restored to Chelsea's starting lineup for this evening's Premier League meeting with Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge.

The Spain international last started a game against Burnley on April 19 and was left out of the squad entirely for the 1-0 win over Liverpool last time out.

Morata returns for the penultimate league game of the season, however, as one of six changes made by Antonio Conte.

Willy Caballero takes over from Thibaut Courtois in goal, Andreas Christensen replaces Gary Cahill in the backline and Davide Zappacosta is also in for Victor Moses at wing-back.

Willian and Pedro also return, taking over from Eden Hazard and Tiemoue Bakayoko in a changed forward line that includes fit-again Morata.

In terms of the visitors, who are after a point to confirm their Premier League safety, David Wagner brings in Philip Billing for Florent Hadergjonaj in one of three changes.

There is also a place in the side for Rajiv van La Parra and Laurent Depoitre, with Alex Pritchard and Steve Mounie dropping down to the bench.

Chelsea: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Zappacosta, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Morata, Pedro
Subs: Eduardo, Cahill, Moses, Bakayoko, Barkley, Hazard, Giroud

Huddersfield Town: Lossl; Smith, Zanka, Schindler, Kongolo, Lowe; Billing, Hogg, Mooy; Van la Parra, Depoitre
Subs: Coleman, Malone, Pritchard, Ince, Quaner, Mounie, Hadergjonaj
