​Morata: Chelsea can beat Barcelona and Real Madrid

Alvaro Morata has made the bold claim that Chelsea can defeat the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The Blues will participate in the Champions League again after winning the Premier League title last season.

And Morata, who joined the club last week from Real, says he is excited to play in England and believes Chelsea can beat the very best in the upcoming campaign.

"It is the perfect situation," he said. "I decided to play in the Premier League and I want to play in Antonio's team. Now I need to work hard, score goals and to play well for the team. There are very good players here and I think we can do something amazing this year.

"It is hard to leave Madrid but it is not so hard when you come to a club like Chelsea, with these players and with this coach, and I think we can play against Real Madrid and Barcelona and win."
