Manchester United beat Chelsea to the signing of Romelu Lukaku and, while Conte says he considers Morata to be "at the same level" as the Belgium worldwide, he suggested he had been concerned by the club's lack of success in the market earlier in the summer.

The Gunners suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat against Antonio Conte's men.

The 20-year-old attacker usually plays in a left wide forward role and wears the eye catching number 70. "I am proud to be here and to have married this project last summer". Costa staying at the club this summer looks unlikely though.

Chelsea face German giants Bayern Munich in their next of their pre-season schedule in Singapore on Tuesday.

Morata will be hoping to help Chelsea retain their Premier League title next season after the Blues won the trophy last term.

American Horror Story: Roanoke , the previous season, was kept under wraps - title and all - until the premiere episode. The first trailer for the season also dropped featuring a group of clowns participating in some creepy cult rituals.

But it is not often you see an African occupying such a lofty office in one of Europe's top clubs, and it is a fact Kanu agrees with. However, his performances in preseason so far suggest that he is now more accustomed to life at Chelsea. Not to mention the fact that he has proven to be a big-game goal-scorer as well. Despite his frame and imposing nature, he has never seemed strong in the air.

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo said Morata can make a huge impact domestically as well as in the Champions League. So now you might have an insight into how influential he is at Stamford Bridge.

It now seems there is no way back to for Costa at Chelsea, yet he is still at the club. The latter is a powerful runner and can be quick off the mark but Morata accelerates when in gear and is quicker around a corner. "Now it's right to start to work together and it's very important to know that there's a lot of work to do".

Chelsea and Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi has experienced a mixed couple of years. The 29-year-old Spain worldwide was forced off and taken to a local hospital for some routine checks but Conte is confident the player will join his team-mates in Singapore - where they will play Bayern Munich and Internazionale next week - for the next leg of their pre-season tour of Asia. The time he spent operating in wide areas, particularly when breaking through at Madrid, has served him well in his tactical education.
