- Alvaro Morata limped of with a suspected injury in the Europa League
- The Spaniard was involved in Chelsea's 2-2 draw away to Vidi FC
- Mauricio Sarri is yet to give an update on the extent of damage to Morata
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata limped off during Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Vidi FC in the Europa League and the Spaniard is doubtful for their trip to Brighton this weekend.
This could give Maurizio Sarri something about to worry ahead of the Blues busy schedule all through the New Year.
Though Olivier Giroud has been a good back up for the Spain international but the Italian gaffer will be looking to maximize his large squad.
Both center-forwards were left on the bench when the west London club ended Manchester City's unbeaten streak in their last Premier League game at Stamford Bridge.
Now that the Europa league engagement is temporarily on break, Chelsea will focus on the domestic scene to keep pace on the league leaders.
After their trip to Brighton on Sunday, the Blues will welcome Leicester City to London then pay a visit on Boxing Day with Watford at Vicarage Road.
The Blues will then begin their second round of matches in the Premier League with London neighbours Crystal palace before playing Southampton on January 2.

According to an ESPN report, the 32-year-old Cahill was overlooked by Sarri for Friday night’s Europa League clash, and has only enjoyed 21 minutes of football in the EPL this term.
