Alvaro Morata says he is full of respect for Antonio Conte because of the Chelsea manager’s work ethic.

The 25-year-old striker is getting used to life working under the Italian manager after having signed for Chelsea from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

Morata has made a strong start to life at Stamford Bridge after signing back in July and he has been a regular fixture in the first team for the Blues.

Conte himself is only in his second season at Chelsea but Morata says he has been delighted with his first few months of working under the Italian manager.

Speaking at a news conference before Chelsea’s trip to Roma on Tuesday night, Morata said: “My relationship is very good with Antonio, he loves working hard and me too.

“In the tactical sense, he is one of the best in the world and I’m very happy to work with him.

“Every day I improve a bit more which is very good for the present and the future.”

Morata will be hoping to feature for the Blues when they return to Premier League action on Sunday with a crunch clash against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues head into that game in fourth place in the Premier League table after their 1-0 victory over Bournemouth last weekend.

The west London side won the Premier League title in Conte’s first campaign in charge at the club last season, but were beaten by Arsenal in the FA Cup final back in May.
