Alvaro Morata prefers new coach Maurizio Sarri to Antonio Conte

Meanwhile, Chelsea have won their first two Premier League games this season under new manager Maurizio Sarri. They ended up finishing a lowly fifth and not qualifying for Champions League football for the 2018/19 Premier League season.

Having spent three trophyless years at the club, Sarri was still regarded highly as one of the best coaches in the world as he joined Chelsea this summer.

However, the 59-year-old struggled in his first competitive game in the Community Shield, losing 3-0 to a dominant Manchester City.

Napoli's chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis has rinsed his former manager Maurizio Sarri with his latest comments and questioned his ability to win trophies. They've brought in the likes of Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, and Kepa Arrizabalaga, losing only Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid despite multiple rumors.

However, he started at Stamford Bridge and found the net in the 41st minute after being set up by Henrikh Mkhitaryan. If I don't get a result in five weeks, the club I take over is relegated - so I have to do it in days.


Chelsea have won their first two games of the season and are now third in the Premier League, something Morata believes is important even this early in the campaign. "I tried five years ago, but it's not my way".

"Chelsea has gone about their business a little bit quiet in terms of having a new manager", the former English worldwide revealed. I think that Eden is ready for 50-60 minutes. That's my own honest opinion, possibly with Pedro and Willian, so all three of them can get in. I don't know for 90 minutes, but he can start.

"With Cahill I think at this moment for a defender it's more hard to play in my team after only 20 days of training", Sarri said.

Sarri suggested that Cahill needs more time to adapt to the way the Italian wants to play. The Spanish striker has two goals in two matches in the Premeir League, the last of which came against Arsenal.
