Since the exit of Didier Drogba from the Chelsea team, the Blues have been unable to get a striker who is powerful in the air.

Diego Costa brought back the goals, but his heading attribute isn’t one that is worthy of commendation as he only scored twice with his head all through last season – a figure summer signing Alvaro Morata has already matched in just three games.

Morata’s aerial impact in Chelsea has been absolute with all his goals and assist being done with his head. He has scored two goals and created two with his head. And the 24-year-old has shown that scoring with his head is natural for him as he scored for Spain and getting an assist too via a header in their 8-0 win over Liechtenstein.

With 15 minutes gone, Morata doubled Spain’s advantage with a well-taken header, and as if that wasn’t enough, he had a hand in Spain’s fifth goal when his fine header, which came back off the bar, was turned in by Iago Aspas.

His second goal in that game was scored with his leg but Morata has shown that his prowess in the air isn’t a fluke, and in that regard, we now have a striker that will bring us back to the glory days of Didier Drogba’s powerful headers.
