Alvaro Morata looks to be in good shape as he prepares for the new season under Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea FC

Alvaro Morata looks to be in good shape after he reported back to Chelsea FC to begin pre-season training last week.

The Spanish striker was not involved in the World Cup in Russia and has since reported back to Cobham to begin his pre-season preparations ahead of his second campaign at the west London club.

Morata endured something of a mixed first season at Chelsea FC following his move to the west London club from Real Madrid last summer.

He started the season strongly but his form in the second part of the campaign tailed off as he struggled with a back injury.

Morata will now be determined to prove himself to new Chelsea FC boss Maurizio Sarri in the lead-up to the new season.

And the 25-year-old certainly looked to be in good shape as he posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account.

Chelsea FC will be looking to at least break back into the top four next season as they bid to try and qualify for the Champions League.

The west London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League last term and missed out on Champions League qualification, before beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final.
