CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte has praised Alvaro Morata after scoring a goal on his debut against Burnley.
Morata started on the bench for Chelsea against Burnley but replaced the anonymous Michy Batshuayi in the second half.
And the former Real Madrid striker sparked Chelsea’s late revival with his first goal for the club.
But it wasn’t enough as the Premier League champions suffered a surprise defeat at Stamford Bridge.
Nevertheless, Conte was happy with Morata performed.
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.
“Now he has to continue to work with all the rest of our players.”
The Chelsea boss also insisted he was unconcerned by Chelsea’s struggles in the transfer market and stressed he is determined to fight for his players.
Conte added: “We must focus on working very hard with these players. As for the transfer market, the club is trying to do the best. I am not worried, I am ready to fight with these players.
“I repeat: it is important for us to concentrate on our work, to be focused every day in training and to try to work in our best way. No excuses.
