Morata earned himself a one-game suspension when he picked up his fifth domestic yellow card of the season when he was booked for over-celebrating his victor in the Carabao Cup quarter-final win over Bournemouth.

He was booked after just the first minute of the game, but admirably kept his head above water in the quarter-final fixture.

Chelsea's players looked to have got into the festive spirit on Friday as they trained ahead of the Premier League trip to Everton.

Arsenal have got the better of Chelsea in the last three matches between the two sides, including victories in the FA Cup final and Community Shield.

"We want to continue, to try to reach Wembley to play the final". 'Last season, if you remember, we were eliminated in the second round against West Ham.

"I have spoken about this player before in an enthusiastic way. I have had good and bad times against them", he said, in quotes reported by the Evening Standard.

"We must accept the decision of the referee to show Alvaro Morata a yellow card last night, which rules him out of Saturday's game through suspension", Conte said. But he showed great maturity and personality. "My players are clever (enough) to go game by game not listen to these rumours - and a lot of them aren't true".

"If there is the possibility to improve the squad and the numerical aspect I think it will be a good choice, but at the same time I am enjoying it with these (current) players".

"You have to play 93 minutes with this danger".

"Do the recent results against them give us extra motivation? Yes".
