West Ham coach reveals his thought about Alvaro Morata
West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has revealed what he thought about Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, due to the recent exploits of the former Real Madrid forward this season.
Bilic was of the view that Chelsea most expensive signing will make the Blue fan forget about their former striker Diego Costa.
He wrote for the London Evening Standard:“On Wednesday night, I watched Chelsea play Atletico Madrid and I thought Antonio Conte’s men were very strong and deserved to win.
“They will miss a player like Diego Costa probably, but Alvaro Morata looks good, scoring his fourth goal in five days when he found the net against a very good Atletico side.
“He is a different player to Costa, lighter, but he has settled in really impressively. I thought Tiemoue Bakayoko also looks really good.
“Chelsea look strong — and especially when Eden Hazard is on the team.”
Morata has a good start to life at Chelsea having scored his first hat-trick for the Blues against Stoke City in their last Premier League game.
Morata will be expected to fire all cylinders when the Premier League Champions face Manchester City on Saturday at the Stamford Bridge.
