Sky Sports pundit: Eden Hazard can make Alvaro Morata even better for Chelsea

Sky Sports pundit: Eden Hazard can make Alvaro Morata even better for Chelsea”

The Spain global completed a £58m move to Chelsea from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer transfer window to improve their attacking options.

It wasn't until the penultimate game of the season for Batshuayi to make his first Premier League start for the Blues, which he marked with a goal as he ended the season with four goals in the final three Premier League games, including the victor away at West Brom which clinched Chelsea's fifth Premier League title.

Premier League veteran Danny Higginbotham believes Chelsea will be a real attacking force when Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard combine in the same team, the Daily Star reports.

Chelsea nearly signed Fernando Llorente in the summer, before the Spaniard opted for a move to Tottenham, but Batshuayi remained loyal to Chelsea after a chat with Hazard.

It was friendly advice.

Morata has been drafted in to replace Diego Costa ahead of the controversial striker's decision to return to Atletico Madrid despite winning two titles in three seasons at Stamford Bridge. I want to succeed at this club and my relationship with Alvaro is very healthy.

The Belgium captain is already Chelsea's highest paid player with a £200,000-per-week contract, but his new deal could take him to earn as much £300,000-per-week plus bonuses.

But the £60million signing, who was deemed fit enough to start against City, was again substituted prematurely in the 1-0 defeat with a hamstring complaint.

"And I do think that if Morata had stayed on the pitch, it quite easily could've finished as a draw against Manchester City". "In terms of self-discipline and motivation, I'm also stronger".
