SHOWS: ROME, ITALY (OCTOBER 30, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA COACH, ANTONIO CONTE, SPEAKING ABOUT MIDFIELDER N'GOLO KANTE, SAYING: "I was a player and I know very well after an injury, a muscular problem, a bad injury, it is very important to listen to the player which are his sensation and then to make the best decision. For him and the team, and for sure tomorrow we try to make the best decision." 2. WHITE FLASH 3. (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA STRIKER, ALVARO MORATA, SAYING: "I want to say again, we have a problem of understanding in this interview, if Chelsea proposed me ten years perhaps I'd sign it, too. I'm very happy in this club, I'm very happy with the city and I'm very happy with everything in London. I really like London and probably if I make good and I improve probably I can stay here more than five years." STORY: Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is expected to be fit to face AS Roma in Tuesday's (October 31) Champions League group stage match, manager Antonio Conte said. Kante, who missed Chelsea's last five matches with a hamstring injury, trained with the squad before they left for Rome and Conte will speak to the France international before deciding whether he will feature. Midfielder Danny Drinkwater is also set to play after recovering from a calf problem and on the back of his first Premier League appearance for Chelsea as a late substitute against Bournemouth on Saturday (October 28). Chelsea, who top the Group C standings, will qualify for round of 16 with a victory at Roma. In a separate news conference at Rome's Olympic Stadium Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata emphasised that he was happy with the club and the city of London and said comments published by Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport that suggested otherwise had been a case of a misunderstanding.
