After serving a one match ban, Alvaro Morata marked his return to the Chelsea starting eleven and scored the opening goal against Brighton, via a familiar source – Cesar Azpilicueta.
The Spaniard headed in Azpilicueta’s cross in the 46th minute to put Chelsea in front. This is now the sixth time this season that Morata has been assisted by Azpilicueta.
Chelsea fans reacted happily to the deadly combination.
Azpilicueta and Morata….. a better love story than twilight

It's just a replay all the time when it's a Morata goal and Azpilicueta assist.

Azpilicueta assist to Morata AGAIN. It's getting ridiculous now.

Azpilicueta's crosses for Morata have been outrageous this season. Right on the money.
