Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata are two good strikers in their own right, and they share quite a number of similarities and differences.

Morata has put critics to shame after a good start to life in the Premier League since his £70 million signing.

“He may not be the most physically imposing of strikers but Alvaro Morata knows how to work the 18-yard box as well as anyone,” he told the Daily Mail.

“As he showed at Real Madrid and now against Burnley and Everton this season, he is also a superb header of the ball.

“Morata is nowhere near as physical as Diego Costa but his movement is excellent, nipping in behind defenders.

“As the stat below shows, he does not seem at all fazed by stepping into the want-away striker’s shoes.”
