"If you remember Morata didn't play regularly with Real Madrid last season because he was behind and I didn't bring with me the suit [from Italy]", he said.
Morata was on the losing side for the Blues last week as Antonio Conte's side suffered a shock 3-2 defeat by Burnley at Stamford Bridge, but the Spain worldwide, who cost Chelsea a reported £65 million, scored and looked a fine addition. Michy Batshuayi had a pretty good preseason and thus earned his two starts in the Community Shield and in the first game of the Premier League season, but now it's time for Morata to get his shot, just as it's been the plan all along. Usually when you don't play regularly, you lose sometimes your performance and sometimes your quality in your physical condition.
That's according to Graham Souness at least, who thinks that it will be hard for Morata to fit in straight away in the Premier League, and that he might take some time to adjust to the pace and physicality of it - compared to Serie A and La Liga, both of which he has of course played in before.

Roque Mesa - Tried to get on the ball but outclassed by United's midfield and substituted. " Anthony Martial is working hard". Questions were raised in the build-up to the game as to why Jose Mourinho was not affording Anthony Martial more game time .
"Morata also is another player who needs to continue to work and improve and find the right physical condition", Conte told his pre-match media conference. But my choices don't depend on the cost of money.
"We can spend a lot of money for one player and then I put him on the bench, because I'm seeing this player is not ready to play".
After signing Morata, Conte spoke publically of how Spurs striker Kane would have been is ideal signing but he tried to clarify those comments by insisting Morata can have a similar impact to the Englishman. Morata is a young player. He can stay in this club for many years to become a fantastic striker for this club. My only intention was to underline the great job Pochettino is doing.
