Chelsea head coach contemplating playing injured midfielder at Spurs on Sunday

Antonio Conte admits he has a difficult decision as to whether he should rush back Tiemoue Bakayoko to play at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Bakayoko has yet to play for Chelsea due to a knee injury, but, with Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas both suspended for the trip to Wembley Stadium, Conte says the French midfielder could be selected.

"Bakayoko is improving very well," Conte told chelseafc.com."‘He is not at the top physical condition but I think he could be in contention for the game. 

"At this moment I don’t have other midfielders available. I have to make a difficult decision."
