Former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit claims Chelsea star Eden Hazard and Willian don’t trust Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata in front of goal.

Morata has failed to hit the ground running this season, with the Spaniard scoring just two goals in eight league appearances for Chelsea.

The Spanish striker scored just 11 Premier League goals last season after arriving from Spanish side Real Madrid.

“His team-mates don’t come into any positions where they create anything for him,” Gullit told beIN Sports.

“The worst part is you can see Willian and Hazard always dribble inside because they don’t trust him.

“But also when the crosses are in, I think there was a moment in the first half where you asked ‘where is Morata’, he wasn’t there. So they don’t trust him.”

Chelsea have been linked with a number of strikers over the past few months amid Morata’s struggles to settle to life in England but Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insists he isn’t thinking of the transfer market.

“I don’t think about the market. I continue to focus just on the team,” Sarri said.

“But in the last few months I think Morata has played better and in the last three days I have seen him in training (play) very, very well.”
