Third win for the Blues in four matches, third goal for Alvaro Morata, this time against Leicester City at King Power Stadium, job well done, but there is still room for improvement, at least that’s what the Spaniard feels.
It is important to win here. Always against Leicester at this stadium it is very difficult to win. We were in a good position at 2-0 but suffered to the end. This is the Premier League
Morata told Sky Sports after the match.
I am good but the most important thing is we are not in the first places and we look forward to moving ahead in the table
the Spanish striker also said, knowing that Chelsea are a point behind co-leaders Manchester United and Manchester City.
It is a good day for the team and for Alvaro. It is always important for a striker to score. It is important to see he is improving and always more involved in our idea of football. That is most important and if he scores then I am very happy
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte told reporters, clearly pleased with his team and Morata in particular.
Next, the Blues are hosting Qarabag on Tuesday, first game of the Champions League group stage, and their first match in a UEFA competition after way more than a year.
