Morata’s performances so far in the current pre-season round of games have been below par. The Spanish international is yet to justify his credentials to Chelsea boss, despite featuring in three consecutive games.
Morata is yet to register a goal since the arrival of Maurizio Sarri and this is believed to be fast becoming a problem, particularly as the club takes on reigning Premier champions Manchester city for the FA community shield at the Wembley stadium during the weekend.
Chelsea is believed to have observed thee recent records with the club seeking for the services of Lewandowski, Martial and Higuain. Morata was also linked with to Juventus Higuain swap this transfer window.
While the club looks elsewhere for a quality center forward, the Spanish international’s performance as of lately have given the club little to hope for. Morata since his £60 million move from Real Madrid, mustered only 15 goals after 53 games last season.
Morata’s display against Arsenal on Wednesday night summed it up. The Spain international missed from the spot during the game, much to the surprise of the Chelsea supporters.
Morata have missed his kick from the spot twice in his Chelsea career and both have been against the North London side. The Spaniard did not stop there as he failed to convert a one on one chance against Arsenal shot-stopper Petr Cech in the first interval of the game.
Morata must work out his form which seems to be declining before the league season starts. The 25yr old striker must go back to the training ground, to evolve from his usual football approach. The Spaniard since his arrival has scored more goals from aerial position, while wasteful in ground position. Morata who possesses immense skills and potential to excel at Chelsea must evolve from his usual football approach as he holds the key to the club’s title aspirations.
