Former Chelsea defender Graeme Le Saux believes Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has already proven doubters wrong after his fine start to his Chelsea career.

“I thought it was a really convincing win against Everton and they did well to beat Leicester, who are still a good Premier League side, on the road last weekend,” Le Saux told Betfair.

“Alvaro Morata has shone in those two games, scoring in each. Chelsea were obviously in for Romelu Lukaku in the summer and missed out, but Morata is certainly doing enough to justify his transfer fee.

“At the moment you might say that Lukaku is the better striker, based on amount of goals scored, but Morata has huge potential.

“His movement is exceptional, and offers a different challenge to his predecessor at Chelsea, Diego Costa – a player who has tormented Arsenal in recent seasons – as he likes to get away from players and into space where he can do the damage.

“A few people in the summer questioned whether he would score goals in the Premier League but he has already proven them wrong which must delight everyone at Stamford Bridge.”
