‘Chelsea won’t win titles with Alvaro Morata up front’, says ex-Spurs star

first_img Morata has been one of Chelsea’s biggest under-performers since joining the club “He’s good as a Plan B. He’s good if you plan to play direct and get long balls into the box.“But to be the first striker at a club like Chelsea, you need to be like Drogba and you need to have that trust from everyone around you. I don’t think he has that.” “Many times he’s made his runs, but it’s like they feel that if they give him the ball he’s going to give it away.“They have doubts about him.“If you want to win something, Morata shouldn’t be your first choice, that’s my opinion. 3 Chelsea cannot win top trophies with Alvaro Morata leading the line up front, according to former Tottenham striker Mido.The ex-Egypt international, and big Serie A and LaLiga fan, says the Spaniard has been a big disappointment since joining the Blues from Real Madrid and pales in comparison to club legend Didier Drogba. 3 Alvaro Morata is nowhere near the level of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, claims Mido 3 Morata has struggled to fulfil his £60million price tag since arriving at Stamford Bridge last summer, scoring just 16 Premier League goals in 43 appearances.He put in another poor display on Saturday as Chelsea suffered a 3-1 London derby defeat to Tottenham at Wembley, where the striker ruined a number of attacks by repeatedly failing to stay onside.PLAYER RATINGS: Chelsea stars hammered after woeful Wembley displayAnd after watching him against Spurs, and comparing his performances for Chelsea to his successful two-season spell at Juventus, Mido says the Blues need a change up-front if they desire more trophies.“He’s disappointing,” the former Tottenham star told Monday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“I watch a lot of football in Italy and to be fair to him at Juve he played very well, but in Italy the game is a little slower and he’s quick, so with his runs in behind defenders, and he’s a good finisher…“But I just felt the other night [against Tottenham] that the Chelsea players don’t trust him. Morata has scored five goals in 12 Premier League appearances this season – is that enough from a £60m striker with the world-class Eden Hazard alongside him? ‘If you want to win trophies Morata should not be your first choice striker”The Chelsea players do not trust him’🗣️ @Midoahm tells @SportsBreakfast why #CFC cannot win silverware with @AlvaroMorata leading the line.Do you agree? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/B4x3dqQsET— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) November 26, 2018last_img read more
