Despite losing 3-2 to Bayern Munich in Singapore on Tuesday, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte saw plenty of positives in his side’s performance against the German champions.

Speaking to Chelsea TV after the match, the Italian appreciated the fact that his Chelsea players had come up against a “strong team” who had managed to clinch the Bundesliga crown very early last season.

In particular, Conte praised his side’s reaction after going 3-0 down to Bayern in the first half, highlighting their “fight” and “commitment” to pull two goals back against one of Europe’s best clubs.

As well as reflecting on the match, the Blues coach looked ahead to the next game against Inter Milan, emphasising that it was “important to continue to work [and] to try and improve”.

Finally, the boss spoke about Alvaro Morata’s performance in Singapore after the Spain international made his debut for the Blues in which he recorded an assist for his new side.

“It was important to see him for half an hour and start to work for us. It’s important now for him to find his feet quickly, to learn our idea of football and to adapt to our methods”, the Italian explained.
