Chelsea playmaker Cesc Fabregas has advised his newest teammate Alvaro Morata to adapt fast at Stamford Bridge following his reported £70 million move.
The Spaniard asked his compatriot to settle down fast to the required business if he wants to succeed in the role as his predecessor Diego Costa.
The former Real Madrid striker is set to lead the attack line of the Blues in the forthcoming season following the likely departure of Costa. The former Atletico Madrid striker has enjoyed an impressive run at Chelsea but manager Antonio Conte says he does not want the player in his team anymore, despite the success of last term.
The 24-year old Morata is expected to replicate the form of Costa as Conte hopes to retain the league title. MichyBatshuayi is expected to get more game time, assisting and supporting Morata, as the fixtures of the club increase following a return to European football.
“They are two young strikers who will have to improve as quick as possible because they are our main strikers. When you are the main striker for Chelsea you need to fight for all the competitions and if you are going to fight for all competitions you need your strikers to score lots of goals,” Fabregas said.
The former Barcelona man asked that Michy improve and that Morata live up to his potential. Batshuayi could only start seven games in all competitions. Even though he scored nine goals in all, it was largely an underwhelming debut season.
Fabregas said lack of European football made Conte limit changes to his first team last season. He added that with more games this season, each player would likely get more opportunities but that they have to take them when they come.
