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

S'pore fans make Bayern Chelsea feel welcome

'Morata is a young player who has a lot of experience in his career because he played with two big teams in Real Madrid and Juventus, ' he said ahead of the International Champions Cup clash in Singapore.

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte praised the battling contribution of new striker Alvaro Morata after his debut in Tuesday's 3-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in Singapore, while Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti hailed his own newcomer James Rodriguez.

The Spain worldwide was introduced just after the hour and was able to flick Cesc Fabregas' corner into the path of Batshuayi to score with five minutes to play. I can't wait to play at Stamford Bridge and in the Premier League'.

The England global played the full 120 minutes as the Blues memorably beat Bayern Munich on their own patch five years ago to conquer Europe.

"It's too early to speak about the impact of Morata".

It took another 6 minutes for them to double their lead, as French winger Franck Ribery showcased his wing wizardry to stand up a cross from the byline, inviting Thomas Muller to power home and make it 2-0.

"Normally, Chelsea's defensive organisation is really good but maybe today they had more problems and (manager Antonio) Conte was trying out different players", Ancelotti told reporters. Morata showed flashes of his ability, including one moment when he launched a Chelsea attack with a driving run through the heart of Bayern's midfield.

"He is a good buy - but it's right to give him the right time to adapt to our method, our idea of football", Conte said.

Marco Friedl's superb curling cross after 56 minutes found the head of James, who was only inches away from the target with his attempt, and the Colombian star was denied from by a last-ditch Gary Cahill challenge as he bore down on goal four minutes later.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Ancelotti was full of praise for the 27-year-old Muller, who endured much criticism last season for not scoring enough goals.

"If a club are interested in a Bayern player, they must be ready to deal with significant economic figures and I don't feel that Milan are ready to meet our demands".
