Antonio Conte thinks Chelsea’s record signing Alvaro Morata will make a “good impact” on the Premier League this season.

The 24-year-old signed for the Blues at the end of last week in a club-record £60million deal from Spanish side Real Madrid.

And Conte confimed that Morata will play some part in Tuesday’s friendly clash against Bayern Munich, which will mark his first appearance for the club.

“I will give him the chance to play some of the game,” Conte told journalists at a pre-match press conference.

“Not from the start, though. He’s just started to work but I want to give him part of the game.

“He is a young player but has a lot of experience in his career. He’s played with two big teams, Juventus and Real Madrid, played difficult games and won the Champions League last year.

“I think he can have a good impact.

“For sure, the Premier League is a different league. It is very tough, physically very strong, but he’s ready to have a good impact.”
