Claude Makelele has praised Alvaro Morata, insisting he is in no doubt that the Chelsea summer signing will continue his fine goalscoring record.

The 24-year-old has adapted quickly to his new surroundings, scoring seven goals for the Blues including a superb hat-trick against Stoke City last month. ‘He’s a good player, strong player, competitor and international,’ Chelsea legend Makelele told Sky Sports.

‘This is the top level. He was at the best team in the world Real Madrid, he scored goals there. He’s gone to Juventus, he scored goals there. Of course he will score goals at Chelsea.’

Morata pulled up with a hamstring injury during Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester City but will be ‘very happy’ in west London playing under Conte, according to Makelele.
‘It’s tough in the Premier League, very tough,’ the former France midfielder added. ‘I think he understands the Premier League. ‘He understands also where he’s going to play, you want to give him more balls. I think he’s going to be happy at Chelsea, for sure.’

Conte’s side face bottom-placed Crystal Palace on October 14 following the conclusion of the international break but Morata is a major doubt for the trip.
