Antonio Conte on today's defeat and why striker Alvaro Morata still has to improve


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says his team is working "very hard" ahead of next season's Premier League and Champions League.

The Blues suffered a 2-1 defeat against Internazionale this afternoon.

Striker Alvaro Morata played more than an hour with Conte declaring that the Spaniard still has to improve ahead of next month's season opener.

"We played against two strong teams – Bayern Munich and Inter Milan – in a period for us that is very important because we are working very hard," Conte told reporters.

"For sure to play three games with the same players means they are very tired.

"We have to continue to work and that is all. The results don't change that.

"Morata is having training with us and for sure he has to improve a lot his physical condition to go quickly to the idea of our football but he is working very well and today he tried to do his best but for sure he has to improve."
