Alvaro Morata started his Chelsea career with a bang, as he scored six goals in his first six games for the Blues.

But the 25-year-old has found success harder to come by in recent weeks, failing to score in his last ten appearances, and he’s yet to find the target in 2018.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright thinks Morata’s case could be a problem of confidence and he thinks the Spaniard isn’t happy anymore.

“I just think he’s not settling here for me personally,” the legendary Arsenal striker told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“He started scoring those goals and when you come to new shores and a new club, he’s in London, and he’s scoring, you think ‘ah brilliant, this is great’.

“Then all of a sudden his form stopped instantly like that. You watched him in games and, he’s a quality player but his touch is not good, he’s going down very easy.

“I saw the chances he had against Arsenal and he was more worried about where the defenders were rather than going through on goal.

“He had two great chances in the game and it seems like his confidence has totally gone.

“When that happens I think that’s because you’re not happy, something’s not right for you and he can’t be happy. I don’t think he’s settling here as well as people might think.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
