Alvaro Morata has admitted that he already feels more comfortable playing under Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea FC than Antonio Conte.

The Spanish striker has been getting used to life under the new Blues boss after the Italian was brought in as Conte’s successor back in July.

Chelsea FC have made a solid start to the new campaign under Sarri, with the Blues having won all four of their opening Premier League games to lead the way as joint leaders with Liverpool FC.

Morata endured something of a mixed first season at Chelsea FC last term following his move from Real Madrid, with the striker having started the campaign strongly before his form tailed off in the second part of the season.

And Morata has admitted that the playing style Sarri has implemented at Chelsea FC already makes him feel more comfortable at the club.

Asked if he feels more comfortable with Sarri in charge, he told Spanish radio station Cadena SER: “Yes, yes, yes.

“For me, yes. It’s not for nothing, but for the style of play. It wasn’t my style of play and I suffered a little because of that.”

Chelsea FC will look to maintain their 100 per cent record in the Premier League when they host Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge after the international break.

Morata has started all four of Chelsea FC’s games so far this season, scoring one goal in the process.
