Alvaro Morata Admits His Critics Come with the Transfer Fee Territory

Alvaro Morata Admits His Critics Come with the Transfer Fee Territory

Chelsea did their best to launch a positive response, but the Blues were struggling, and Burnley incredibly doubled their lead in the 39th minute when Stephen Ward broke into the home side's box before finding the top corner with a stunning strike.

Chelsea fought back through Alvaro Morata and David Luiz, but Cesc Fabregas' dismissal for two bookable offences disrupted their momentum in a second-half they dominated.

Conte said: "Morata is very important and it's important that he now adapts himself to our philosophy - today he played a good game with the right intensity".

But they won just once on the road last season, and will be outmatched by both the talent of Chelsea and the atmosphere of Stamford Bridge. Me, I have to start to study a new formation with ten or nine players.

But responding to Wenger's comments, Conte said at Friday's pre-match press conference: 'My message is that I'm not looking for sympathy from any coaches for this situation. "Instead we conceded three goals and despite a good second half performance it was hard to change the result".




Captain Gary Cahill was shown a straight red card for a studs-first lunge in the 13th minute, then the champions conceded three goals in a 20-minute period before halftime. Chelsea players are not in the best psychological state, the leader is injured in the team, Conte is dissatisfied with the work of management, but for the time being, 85 million euros spent on Morata cause dissatisfaction with the game of the newcomer.

"For a defender especially it's worth watching strikers movements, not too much, not overkill but I think you can get an idea of what type of player they are like".

And Conte believes Ronald Koeman's men are well-placed to compete for honours in the coming campaign, despite losing former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for £75million. "I have always answered this question, not only once but twice, three times".

In contrast, Chelsea won all but two games at Stamford Bridge, a record second only to Tottenham Hotspur.

"Some players have different styles but that won't affect the way that we go about our business".
