More playing time is on the cards for Alvaro Morata as Chelsea get set to face Inter Milan in their next preseason game. 

Having played just over half an hour of Tuesday’s defeat to Bayern Munich, Antonio Conte on Friday, served a big hint that Morata will start the final game of Chelsea's tour of Asia against Inter Milan on Saturday.

‘Yes, I think it could be a good option to see Morata from the start,’ said Conte. ‘It’s the last game before the match against Arsenal so for me, it’s very important to find a good fit as soon as possible. For this reason we will play with the best starting 11.

‘I’m pleased with the pre-season because I’ve seen the right commitment from my players. They are working very well and it’s a pleasure for me to see this.’

Morata provided an assist in his debut match, and many are keen to see if he will open his goal-scoring account against the Italian giants this weekend.
