Le Saux: Lukaku better striker than Morata

Le Saux: Lukaku better striker than Morata

"His movement is exceptional, and offers a different challenge to his predecessor at Chelsea, Diego Costa - who has tormented Arsenal in recent seasons - as he likes to get away from players and into space where he can do the damage".

At the start of the summer Chelsea were not on Morata's radar, he believed they were in the market for a different striker, but when the opportunity to work with Anotonio Conte arose Morata was confident that a move to Stamford Bridge was right for him.

Last but certainly not least, Danny Drinkwater is underrated and will prove to be the able backup that Conte desires in order to rotate the team without any qualms.

"Also to score the goal you must be happy".

"[Zinedine] Zidane wanted me to stay and I was happy in Madrid, but I couldn't stay to be a substitute".

"In this case, I think the air conditioner was stronger than my sweets".

Mourinho, however, had claimed that it has become "trendy to play with five defenders", casually lumping the Italian's wing-backs - lauded for their consistent ability to create width higher up the pitch - in with the three standard centre-backs.

Morata revealed that he was close to joining Chelsea last summer but a move failed to materialise. "Cesar Azpilicueta was a bit annoyed because he had already started house-hunting for me".

"I had various offers this summer", said Morata in the Daily Mail. "This time Cesar has sorted everything!" he admitted. Your job is to put the ball in the back of the net.

Conte brought Alvaro Morata to Chelsea from Real Madrid in a deal which could rise to £70m. He was in the early stages of losing his voice but he is hoping a dose of antibiotics can help him to recover enough to continue barking out his instructions on the touchline.

But Le Saux reckons Chelsea should have looked to bring in another left-back to provide support for Marcos Alonso.

In the end, United switched their attention to Romelu Lukaku, landing him for £75million from Everton, while Morata chose to go to Stamford Bridge for a similar fee. With Conte, it may have been the Director of Football hierarchy (although it was part of the job description, surely) and transfers, although we did land some of his favoured targets like Morata and Zappacosta.

"He needs time to recover. I am ambitious and hungry to succeed".
