Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea this summer for a club record fee and with Chelsea set to play Burnley this weekend, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked if Morata is ready to start for Chelsea.
“It is normal for me and for the players that start to work with me that they need time to adapt to our style of football. It is normal this,” Conte said.
“Alvaro is working well, improving a lot his physical condition and starting to understand what I want about him.
“For sure he needs time to understand to adapt to our style of football. For me the striker is a really important role and it is very important to understand the position I want in the game and it is more difficult to adapt than other roles.”
