Chelsea were 3-1 winners over Huddersfield on Tuesday night and the Blues did that without topscorer Alvaro Morata.

Antonio Conte started the trio of Pedro, Willian and Eden Hazard in a three-man attack, and they were too much for Huddersfield to handle.

Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy thinks the Blues play better without Morata, who was brought in during the summer to replace Diego Costa.

“I think the way they play with the three of them is better,” he said.

“It’s like how they played when they won the league.

“And in effect you have two number 10s, whoever it is, they rotate positions really well, they’re all clever, they’re all on the same page.

“Morata’s done brilliantly by the way, he could play with either two of them but watching Chelsea play recently, with Pedro and Willian both on the bench, I think that’s been a negative.

“Because I think it’s done to include (Cesc) Fabregas in a three-man midfield and you lose something defensively when Fabregas plays, even though he’s brilliant going the other way.”

  1. I think he should use this system against teams in the bottom half of the table who pack their defense — lower prem teams have physically imposing players but they are immobile

  2. Morata is perfect the problem is 3-5-2 formation the perfect formation for us 3-4-3 …Front line Hazard Morata and willian bench Pedro and introduce him in 60th minute for willian ….Midfield Kante moses alonso fabrigas …Defence Rudiger Christensen Azipilicueta .Sub= Pedro on Willian, Drink water on Fabrigas ,zappa Costa on Moses … Now the following Bakayoko, Musonda, Batshuayi Ampadu Cahil Luiz only introduce when you are leading by 3 or 2 nil
