Morata makes Chelsea debut, but Bayern Munich 'roast' Blues

Last week, the Spanish global left Real Madrid to move to Stamford Bridge, and he was given his debut as a second-half substitute in the worldwide Champions Cup defeat to Bayern Munich.

"They are two young strikers who will have to improve as quick as possible because they are our main strikers". 'He has also played a lot of games in the Champions League and won it last season. "So we know it's going to be harder".

Pedro is due back in London to undergo further examination, likely ruling him out for the remainder of the Blues' tour to Asia, where they face Bayern Munich and Inter Milan in the 2017 International Champions Cup. "I wish him all the best and hopes he scores goals like he always does".

The start of the second half had a similar look to the opening 30 minutes as Bayern regained control, with new signing James Rodriguez squandering three chances to put the game to bed.

Chelsea, and manager Antonio Conte, are allegedly digging deep into their coffers this summer window, with the team expected to shell out over £250 million over the coming weeks, as reported by ESPN.

It was German worldwide Mueller, whose future has been rumoured to be in doubt after Bayern's loan signing of James Rodriguez, who was the outstanding player on the night.

The Blues have landed Morata for an initial £58m fee which could rise to £70m, and the Spain worldwide has been earmarked to replace the outgoing Diego Costa as first-choice striker.

And it was here that we had a first sighting at how Morata may be deployed in Conte's winning machine. "Normally, Chelsea's defensive organisation is really good but maybe today they had more problems and Conte was trying out different players".

"Being back in the Champions League is great for us and right for the club", he added on the eve of a match against German champions Bayern Munich.

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