Alvaro Morata Believes It Was 'Destiny' To Play Under Antonio Conte

Alvaro Morata Believes It Was 'Destiny' To Play Under Antonio Conte”

However, at a meet-and-greet session organised by T-Systems at Cafe Football yesterday, the German global confirmed he is staying put at Bayern Munich.

Chelsea were caught cold in the heat of Singapore as three early goals from Bayern Munich gave the German champions a 3-2 win at the International Champions Cup (ICC).

Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti had implored his side to show improvement following a 4-0 drubbing by AC Milan in Shenzhen last week.

Chelsea took on Bayern Munich in China, hoping to build on their impressive 3-0 victory over Arsenal at the weekend.

But after a first-half drinks break, Chelsea seemingly awoke from their slumber and Alonso threatened to get one back when he cut in and blasted over the bar before Batshuayi forced a save from Tom Starke just before the break.

But a sluggish start left them with too much to do against a rampant Bayern.

The Bundesliga champions opened the scoring after just six minutes when right-back Rafinha picked up possession of the ball some 30 yards out, before the Brazil global strode forward and beat Thibaut Courtois with a low shot into the corner of the net.

The clash between last season's German and English league champions was the first ever ICC tie in Singapore, which will also feature Inter Milan later this week.

Bayern has brought in midfielders Corentin Tolisso and Sebastian Rudy in the off-season, as well as playmaker James Rodriguez and forward Serge Gnabry.

Mueller then made it 3-0 with a spectacular long-range effort after 26 minutes when the German worldwide strolled forward from halfway towards a passive Chelsea defence and unleashed a curling shot past Courtois from 25 metres.

Then Franck Ribery found space to wander down the left wing before floating in a cross which Thomas Muller volleyed past Thibaut Courtois.

It was hardly the most significant of games but the Blues' slow start must have been a little galling for Antonio Conte.

New Chelsea man Alvaro Morata, who came on in the 63rd minute to make his first appearance for the club, flicked on Cesc Fabregas' corner at the near post to Michy Batshuayi, who tapped the ball in easily.

A series of substitutions helped change the flow of the game, as Chelsea introduced new signing Alvaro Morata and David Luiz on 62 minutes.
