Chelsea maintained our 100% start to the Europa League campaign with a 1-0 victory over Hungarian champions Vidi at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night.
A misfiring Alvaro Morata scored the only goal of the game in the second half to secure the win at Stamford Bridge and give Chelsea a three-point cushion in Group L ahead of the double-header against BATE Borisov.
Former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle claims the Blues weren’t at our best despite the win over Vidi. He insists Chelsea struggled against an organized Vidi defence.
Hoddle said on BT Sport: “Vidi were excellent. Chelsea limped over the line. They weren’t really at it.
“They couldn’t break Vidi down but it was a beautiful ball from Cesc Fabregas and Morata finished it nicely.”
Despite scoring Chelsea’s winner, former Liverpool striker Michael Owen believes Morata had an average game.
“He’s very frustrated and shaking his head,” Owen said of Morata.
“He got booked for dissent and his game was average but he’s got a cracking goal in the end.”
What do you think of Chelsea’s performance against Vidi on Thursday and do you think Morata’s performance against Vidi was average despite his goal?
The Blues will return to Premier League action this weekend with a visit to Southampton on Sunday.
