Former Chelsea player Chris Sutton believes Alvaro Morata has a better movement than Diego Costa.

Morata has been impressive for Chelsea in the absence of Costa, who has been pushing for a move to Atletico Madrid.

“Well, [Alvaro Morata] is a good striker,” Sutton told BBC.

“He’s not a direct replacement for Costa in the way he plays but his movement, in some ways, is better than Costa’s.

“He’s really, really clever. His goal yesterday epitomised that, peeling off the back of Wes Morgan.

“He can finish. He’s a really brilliant finisher.

“Conte has worked with him before. He knows him well.

“He didn’t seem to be up to speed with his fitness in pre-season but he is such a clever player.

“A really brilliant signing.”

Sutton also believes Morata has the best movement among all the strikers in the Premier League.

“I think he’s got the cleverest movement out of all the strikers in the Premier League,” Sutton added.

“I’m a big fan of Harry Kane but he is so cute in and around the box.

“He will get chances because of his movement.”
