Barkley came on in the 30th minute at The Emirates during Chelsea's League Cup semi-final loss to Arsenal on Wednesday night when he replaced the injured Willian.

Chelsea manager provided an injury update ahead of Chelsea's clash against Newcastle United in the FA Cup and stated that Alvaro Morata, Thibaut Courtois and Willian will not be a part of the squad. "I don't know [how long] because it's very hard to tell, how many days they need to come back".

"Morata and Courtois are out". Morata has a problem in his back and Courtois took a kick in his ankle.

"Fabregas trained today with us, and tomorrow I will check his physical condition".

Willian, meanwhile, was poised to undergo a scan to determine the extent of his hamstring problem sustained at Arsenal.

'But I don't think we're talking about a serious injury'.

"For this reason, sometimes I don't sleep, especially when you have to face hard situations, and we have to try to invent something before the game or during the game".

Attack: Chelsea have been handed a blow as Alvaro Morata has been ruled out after failing to recover from a back injury that's kept him out of the last three games.

"The players are happy [with the packed fixture list] because they want to play, and they want to play every game".

"But when you are sure about your work and that you are doing everything to improve this club, I am very relaxed, calm and I don't have this type of worry".

Playing 36 Premier League games for Everton last season, Barkley was the Toffees' key creator with 84 chances created. "From the summer, the club decides every single player". Conte said a decision over whether the player departs on loan is down to Chelsea's hierarchy: "To sell, to buy, to go on loan, the club will inform you about these situations", italian manager said.
