Alvaro Morata has so far scored six goals for Chelsea in six games, and Chelsea pass master Cesc Fabregas is hoping that on Wednesday, the summer signing will finally convert one of his defence-splitting passes.
The Spanish duo have linked up well at Stamford Bridge since the striker’s summer arrival, but the former Real Madrid man is yet find the back of the net from a Fabregas assist, and Fabregas has given a lot of wonderful balls for Morata to score.
However, four of Morata’s six strikes have actually come from Spanish teammate Cesar Azpilicueta.
“Alvaro is a great lad,” Fabregas told Spanish radio station Onda Cero. “He’s come here to add and he is doing a great job.
“He has adapted very fast to what the coach wants and to the league, which is not an easy one for strikers.
“We are trying to help him as much as possible. He is working very well. For the past three years I’ve had with Diego a spectacular striker in front of me. I hope I have that great feeling with Alvaro.
“So far I’ve given him three [assists] and he hasn’t scored them! I told him on Saturday that he puts away all except mine.
“Against Stoke I gave him two passes and he missed with only the keeper left to beat. I hope on Wednesday we get a better understanding!”
