Morata debut upstaged by two-goal Mueller

27 Juillet 2017

"He has only been with us for two days and he needs time to work and find his feet and to understand our way of playing".

Bayern responded brilliantly to last week's 4-0 drubbing by AC Milan in Shenzhen with a scintillating start against Chelsea as Thomas Mueller's double after Rafinha's pinpoint shot gave the Germans a 3-0 lead inside 26 minutes in Singapore.

"I am happy with how we played against Chelsea, especially the performances of Tolisso and James as it seemed like they had played with us for a long time", he added.

The Spain worldwide became the Blues' fourth major signing of the summer when he completed his record-breaking £70m move from last season's La Liga and Champions League winners Real Madrid.

But Chelsea's early lethargy, going down 0-2 in the first 12 minutes, will neither cause Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti to jump for joy, nor Chelsea manager Antonio Conte to rush back to the drawing board.

Morata will be Antonio Conte's first-choice striker next season and there will be plenty of pressure on the 24-year-old's shoulders.

Top Trump Middle East adviser fired for unknown reasons
Two administration officials with knowledge of the decision said Derek Harvey was sacked Thursday for unknown reasons. Derek Harvey, the president's top Middle East adviser, was dismissed on Thursday by national security adviser H.R.

But Batshuayi's pre-season performances have impressed Conte and his staff and after scoring three goals in his last two outings against Arsenal and Bayern Munich, the Chelsea boss has had a change of heart about letting him leave, according to the Evening Standard.

"I am happy with the squad and satisfied with the players we have".

Chelsea play Inter Milan in Singapore on Saturday.

Chelsea star, Victor Moses, has boasted that he is good enough to play any role for the west London club in the new season.

Morata had a hand in Michy Batshuayi's late consolation goal in a second half that saw Bayern continue to create the better of the chances, many of which fell to the Spain striker's former Real Madrid team-mate James Rodriguez, who endured a frustrating evening.
