Alvaro Morata Has Our Total Confidence - Chelsea Star

Alvaro Morata Has Our Total Confidence - Chelsea Star

I'm certain Morata is going to have an extraordinary end to the season [and] that he is going to have a starring role for his team.

Cahill was left out of the England squad for the friendlies against Holland and Italy, while Morata is missing from the Spain set-up to face Germany and Argentina.

Morata's absence comes following a disappointing run of form at club level, with the 25-year-old not having scored for Chelsea in 2018 and starting the Blues' last three matches on the bench.

"This is a question for the coach of the national teams, not for me", Conte said when asked whether Cahill's and Morata's omissions placed doubt over their involvement in the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

"There is only one way: to work hard and to show that you deserve to play".

"There are still two months for every player to prove they deserve to go to the World Cup".

GETTYJuventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has reportedly asked Florentino Perez to re-sign Alvaro Morata

'But maybe Morata can score on Sunday?'

"The fact players haven't been called is down to various things; form, injuries and also to see new players better". It is up to the national team coach to make the best possible decisions for his country, this is not up to me. "We are thrilled to be able to play against two great teams, the 2014 World Cup finalists".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has called for Alvaro Morata and Gary Cahill to work harder to get back into his plans.

Morata was a second-half substitute in Chelsea's 3-0 defeat to Barcelona on Wednesday, which ended the European journey of the reigning Premier League champions.

'We must try to do both (finish in the top four and win the FA Cup),' Conte said. In the last game we played at home we suffered against them.
