Chelsea legend Didier Drogba hails Alvaro Morata as one of Chelsea's best
Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has hailed Alvaro Morata and believes Chelsea are already benefiting from the former Real Madrid striker, who penned a five-year contract in a club-record £67m deal.
Morata scored his third goal for Chelsea on Saturday in his first four Premier League games to open the scoring where they battled to a 2-1 win over Leicester City, taking his tally to three goals and two assists.
"He is scoring goals that are winning games so I am really happy for him and for the club as well. It is very important to score. As a striker, when you start with a new team, people have high expectations,’’ Drogba told Sky Sports when asked about Morata.
"When you match those expectations, you are just happy and the goals continue to come. I hope he will have a great season because we need that."
