Chelsea fly back to England on the back of two straight pre-season defeats in Singapore – a 3-2 loss to Bayern Munich and the 2-1 reverse at the hands of Inter Milan.
Club record signing Alvaro Morata was deployed out of position as he started out on the left-hand side of attack while Michy Batshuayi was the targetman.
For Chelsea fans, they are unhappy with Conte for playing Batshuayi out wide and substituting the 24-year-old just after 60 minutes of play.
Why morata?? What the hell is conte thinking 🤔

Can't believe he took Morata off… Didn't give him a change through the middle… Wow Conte

You bought Morata to play him on the wings. Conte fool like that?

I don't think Conte has that much faith in Morata, we buy a striker and don't even let him try to lead the line.
