Despite boasting an impressive scoring pedigree over the past few seasons, many expected Alvaro Morata to struggle with the physicality of English football when he made the move to Chelsea this summer. The striker though has dismissed all apprehension with a blistering start to his Chelsea career with seven goals in eight games so far.
The Spaniard was at his best again as Chelsea defeated Atletico Madrid 2-1 in their Champions League encounter on Wednesday scoring the equalizer for Chelsea. Up against possibly one of the toughest defenders in the form of Diego Godin, Morata came out unscathed with a wonderful performance against the formidable Uruguayan.
Far from standing his own, Morata was seen bullying the hard tackling defender and at one time even managed to completely outduel Godin sending the Atletico man to the floor as they vied for the ball.
It seems Costa won’t be missed by Chelsea after all. Check out the video of Morata destroying Goding below –
