With Diego Costa set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, Chelsea new signing Alvaro Morata will have to fight off competition from in-form Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi to be the number one striker in Chelsea.
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes Batshuayi, who has scored four goals in two preseason games, has the edge over Morata in bid to be No.1 striker.
“Alvaro is coming in but he has to adapt to our system,” said Courtois as quoted on Daily Mail.
“So, maybe Michy has a slight advantage. A new player always has to fit into the team.
“It’s good that Morata is coming in, obviously. He’s been training with Real Madrid and maybe he will be able to play against Bayern or Inter. That’s good because he needs to feel our way of playing because it’s different.
“Michy is a good striker so if he keeps scoring there is no reason to change. He knows in pre-season he is the first option. He has to do well, obviously.”
