He said: "He is one of our best players to take a penalty".
Morata has the world at his very expensive feet.
The 24-year-old arrived in London last month with some pedigree.
Victor Moses is suspended, carrying over a ban from last season's FA Cup final.
Last season the attacker bagged four goals in 15 appearances for Huddersfield before agreeing on a new loan deal with Chris Houghton's Brighton.
The 21-year-old winger is also a full Germany global and was part of his country's squad at Euro 2016, although he missed the Confederations Cup through injury, and Sane says his rapid development makes him feel like he is in a film. It's hard to see Sean Dyche's equalling their win tally for the previous campaign against the champions this Saturday.

Chelsea won the Premier League title with two games to spare last term after the Blues ended up seven points ahead of runners-up Tottenham Hotspur.
He's left Los Blancos to change all that. These were the only two years in which Chelsea played the same opponents for back-to-back openers. Which makes Morata's task even greater. It was the Italian who brought Eden Hazard back to the elite level, calmed Diego Costa to the point where he was not seeing yellow cards every game and bamboozled his fellow managers with an impregnable formation. The return to European football, while welcome, will stretch the squad and other teams now have experience of playing against Chelsea's system.
"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I'm very happy at Chelsea". Costa bullied a lot. "Morata will give a different style to Chelsea". Loftus-Cheek, who has been an integral member of England's under-21 side, has made 32 appearances for Chelsea since first breaking into the team in 2014.
Eden Hazard has been ruled out with an ankle injury that he suffered while on worldwide duty this summer so Willian should join Pedro in the attack.
It was hardly the best of starts.
Twenty-five years ago we awaited the start of the first Premier League season and transfer records were broken as clubs jostled for position on the start line.
The time has come for one of Europe's best supporting actors to as a lead role.
However, Chelsea's unusual transfer business this summer should have no effect on the match this weekend.
The pressure is already on as he looks to live up to his top billing. "Now is our chance to fight for the Premier League and we have to do it as well".
Former England striker Ian Wright criticised Chelsea's decision to sell the Serbian midfielder this week, saying the Blues had handed rivals United "the last part of the jigsaw".
