The pressure is beginning to build on new Chelsea signing Alvaro Morata as the 24-year-old has failed to find the net in two pre-season games since joining Chelsea.
However, people fail to realise that this is just pre-season and it isn’t enough to be a test for Chelsea’s record signing.
After the 2-1 defeat to Inter Milan, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has admitted that there’s room for improvement for the latest Chelsea signing.
“Morata has just started training with us and has only been able to improve slightly in that time,” Conte said.
“He has a long way to go with his physical condition to get up to speed with the style of football we play. He is working very well and today he tried his best but he still has plenty of improving to do.”
The game against Inter is Morata’s first start for Chelsea as we draw closer to the start of the new season.
