It’s not so often that you see a defender combine consistently well with a centre-forward, and Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has done that pretty well this season as he has forged a good understanding with Alvaro Morata, even though he plays as a centre-back.
Azpilicueta has assisted Morata four times so far in the Premier League this season. The Spaniard assisted his fellow Spaniard twice to help Morata score a hatrick on Saturday against Stoke City.
According to stats expert WhoScored.com, Azpilicueta to Morata is the most prolific assist-to-goalscorer combination in Europe’s top 5 leagues this season.
Azpilicueta has created four of Morata’s goals so far this season.
