Chelsea legend, Pat Nevin was at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea defeated Everton 2-0 on Sunday and the former Chelsea player was impressed with how well Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata linked up against Everton.

“Everton where asked a whole bunch of questions they had no answer for and it was more often than not a specifically Spanish Inquisition,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.

“Never mind the fact that Cesc and Alvaro scored the goals, they were setting up chances for each other and linking up continually all over the sun-baked pitch.

“There were times when they were not only speaking a different language to the opposition, they seemed to be playing a different game.

“The movement and understanding were superb and I am sure that it was no surprise to Antonio Conte; if you stick like-minded people together on a football field it can add another dimension to their play.

“From the moment Morata arrived I have been waiting for the understanding between Alvaro and Cesc to grow. It was maybe a slight surprise however when the assist for the first goal came from the former and the finish from the latter, but it doesn’t matter either way.

“This is something I can confidently predict we will see much more of as the season progresses.”
