Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has stated that midfielder Cesc Fabregas is the only fit midfielder.
Bakayoko picked up a strain in the UCL match against Roma, and Kante remains injured with Drinkwater still sidelined.
And Conte admits the absence of midfielders will lead to a repeat of the Roma formation against Watford.
“At the moment, I can say nothing about the starting XI,” he told a news conference. “We have many doubts. I hope to try to recover some players in these 24 hours.”
Asked if Fabregas is their only fit senior midfield player, he replied: “Yeah, that could be the case.”
He added: “I’m not happy changing the role of my players. I think every player has his own role. But, sometimes, you have a situation where you have to adapt and you must be ready to pay for this. It’s normal.”
