Alvaro Morata is perfect for the Premier League, according to Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

The Spaniard was signed from Real Madrid this summer as the replacement for Diego Costa.

Since his arrival, Morata has scored 6 goals in 6 Premier League matches, including a hat-trick in Saturday’s 5-0 win over Stoke City, and Conte believes the 25-year-old has already adapted to the rigours of the English game.

“Now he is involved totally in our style of football and our idea and he is very strong,” Conte said after the win. “You can see that today [he took] a lot of good contact and tackles and I think he’s showing that he’s a really good, complete player.

“This league is not easy, above all for the strikers because during the game there is a lot of physical contact, and you must be prepared for this type of game because referees don’t whistle a lot and that’s good for the game.

“He adapted very well to this league but now he has to continue to work and improve because I think he has only just started his path.”
