The Belgian plays in a more advanced role in Tuesday's clash after his team-mate was forced out of contention with a back injury

Eden Hazard will lead the line for Chelsea in the absence of Alvaro Morata as the Blues visit Huddersfield Town on Tuesday. 

The Belgium international moves to centre forward in Antonio Conte's side, with Willian and Pedro flanking him in a new-look attacking line-up. 

There is no room for Michy Batshuayi, however, who remains on the bench in spite of Morata's withdrawal due to a back injury.

Cesc Fabregas is another Blues substitute, with N'Golo Kante and Tiemoue Bakayoko preferred by Conte in the middle. 

Huddersfield: Lossl; Lowe, Schindler, Jorgensen, Smith; Ince, Mooy, Hogg, Williamson; Kachunga, Mounie.
