Assistant Jody Morris took the press conference ahead of Nottingham Forest tie on Friday.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard misses his pre-match press conference due to a sickness bug.
Frank Lampard has been unwell over the last week, while the likes of Fikayo Tomori and Billy Gilmour are others who have picked up problems at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.
Explaining Lampard’s absence, Morris said: “There has been a bit flying about anyway but I think it’s just that time of year and you have to put up with those sort of things.
“We’ll look at how the lads are feeling. After all the games, you’ve got to utilise the squad.
I’m sure there will be a few changes from the Brighton game but how many I’m not sure just yet.”
We wish our boss a quick recovery, lets wish him well.
