Didier Drogba is happy with Alvaro Morata’s adaptation to the Premier League.
Morata joined Chelsea for a club record £58m fee in July and has hit the ground running, with three goals and two assists in his first four games.
Morata netted the opening goal against Leicester City on Saturday and Drogba believes he can go on to play a key role at Chelsea this term.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, the former Chelsea striker said:
“He is scoring goals that are winning games so I am really happy for him and for the club as well.”
“It is very important to score. As a striker, when you start with a new team, people have high expectations.
“When you match those expectations, you are just happy and the goals continue to come.
“I hope he will have a great season because we need that.”
Morata’s bright start has got Chelsea fans excited especially those of us who feared it would be difficult to replace Diego Costa.
Obviously there is still more to come from the Spaniard and we can be rest assured that he will get better once he fully adapts to the Premier League demands.
We’ll be hoping he emulates Drogba who achieved legendary status at Stamford Bridge by leading the club to several league and cup titles including the most prestigious of them all, the Uefa Champions League.
