PUNDIT REVEALS WHY HE’S SURPRISED AT MORATA

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has been in tremendous form since signing for Chelsea from Real Madrid during the summer.

Morata has scored seven goals in all competitions this season and Sky Sports pundit Danny Higginbotham is surprised that most of his goals this season came in when Eden Hazard was not in the team.

Higginbotham can only imagine what would happen when Hazard is back at his best.

“Very well,” Higginbotham said of Morata’s Chelsea start.

“Another player that’s had massive pressure on him with the price tag but not just that, replacing Diego Costa.

“He’s a brilliant focal point, he leads the line very well.

“What I like about him as well is that he brings other players in.

“What we’ve got to remember as well is arguably Chelsea’s best player going forward, Hazard, he’s been missing for so many games.

“For Morata to get the goals that he’s got with, more often than not, Hazard not being in the team.

“Imagine what it might be like now with Eden Hazard back in the team, giving him more assists.

“He’s been brilliant, he’s a clever player, he’s got great movement, gets in the right place at the right time.”
