He is quoted by the Metro as saying: "Chelsea have one of the best strikers in Europe - and I am sure he is going to win trophies with them..."

Alvaro Morata has revealed his role as Chelsea's first-choice striker was the defining factor in his decision to join from Real Madrid.

With 10 minutes remaining of the first half, Atletico finally started to make an impression at the other end of the pitch, although the home side were gifted their opportunity to take the lead. "It's easy for me playing with him". That is a chance for him to show he is a top player who can compete to be the best.

"They were Champions League matches, big games against the best players", said Denmark global Christensen of that quartet of meetings, of which City won three and the other ended in a draw.

Spain are likely to be without Alvaro Morata for their final World Cup qualifiers after he suffered an injury during Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.

City remain a serious threat to Chelsea without Aguero.

Chelsea have won the league in two of the last three seasons. Eddie Newton and Paulo Ferreira did a great job with me.

"He's really bang on and we were talking about Harry Kane but this lad has just come straight in". The fact that Antonio Conte's men trail the Manchester clubs is more down to the ruthlessness of their title rivals.

Conte says he will wait to assess his players, but in a "massive game" it seems inconceivable Hazard would be left on the substitutes' bench.

"It was a simple tactical decision", Conte said at Stamford Bridge. "I think he's the best and I have great respect for him, for his work".

Even after a last minute victor against Atletico Madrid and a title winning goal against West Brom, Batshuayi still isn't trusted.

"I think Eden, if he was able to play one game like the Atletico game, it means he's ready now to play with continuity", the Chelsea coach insisted. "I love this from him, and I ask it of him because, [when it comes to] a player with his talent, it's important to ask him to be decisive every game".
