Alvaro Morata was signed for a record fee from Real Madrid during the summer and there was the question of he will adapt to the demands of the Premier League and if he’d fulfill his record breaking fee.
For former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas, Morata won’t only justify his signing, but he will make Chelsea fans forget about Diego Costa.

He said: “The impact and difference Morata made when he was on the field was unbelievable.
“And if Conte’s saying he’s not quite up to speed then I can’t wait to see him when he is up to full speed.
“He did have a bit of Costa about him where he did ruffle a few feathers. He did put himself into challenges and won a few headers, he held up the ball and took his goal well.”
