Morata trains

Our new signing Alvaro Morata trained with the Blues squad for the first time this evening in Singapore as attention turned towards Tuesday’s game against Bayern Munich.

The Spanish striker, who officially became a Chelsea player on Friday following his move from Real Madrid, was part of the group which emerged onto the training pitch at the Singapore American School at 7pm local time.

Morata headed out alongside Cesar Azpilicueta and Willy Caballero and immediately looked comfortable among his new team-mates, laughing and joking with members of the squad as they got back to work following last night's 3-0 win against Arsenal in Beijing.

After taking part in some light warm-up drills, Morata spent time with Antonio Conte who offered instructions and advice.

The squad departed China immediately after last night's game and arrived in Singapore this morning shortly after 7am local time.

Pedro was missing from the group which trained this evening having returned to the UK after sustaining a concussion and facial injuries following a collision with Gunners’ goalkeeper David Ospina.

The Blues will train at the National Stadium, the venue for Tuesday’s game against Bayern Munich, tomorrow night where Conte and one of his players will speak to the media.
