Chelsea’s Morata delivers damning verdict on PL defenders

Date published: Saturday 2nd September 2017 4:20

“I am happy at Chelsea, but it is a new club and a new culture for me to get used to. I’ve scored two goals and set up two more in as many games.

“Everything is starting to fall into place, but I have not yet adapted to the style of play. I don’t know any of my team-mates beyond my fellow Spaniards.

“Chelsea play an Italian style of football, and I have to adapt to their tactics. As the main striker I always have to be a target for my team-mates.

“I have to battle with opposing central defenders, and over here they are far stronger physically than in any other country.

“But it is fair to say that they are in a mess with their tactics – and they offer me the chance to score goals as they get confused.

“The game here is different to what I know. In Spain you have time to think and keep hold of the ball.

“But over here, by the time you’ve got possession you’ve already taken a couple of kicks from opponents.

“In Spain when you turn with the ball you have time to look up at the keeper and see where to aim. Here you just have to shoot straight away.

“But this helps make the Premier League attractive to watch.”
