Alvaro Morata wishes David De Gea a happy birthday after heading past the Manchester United goalkeeper for Chelsea on Sunday
Alvaro Morata has taken to social media to send a heartfelt message to David De Gea to wish the Manchester United goalkeeper a happy 27th birthday, just a day after the striker headed the winner for Chelsea past his Spain team-mate at Stamford Bridge.
Morata headed home a brilliant winner for Antonio Conte’s men in west London on Sunday as the Blues claimed a vital 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.
De Gea was left rooted to the spot as Morata won the game for the Blues and Chelsea were able to close the gap to Manchester United down to just one point.
The pair know each other well from their time together playing for the Spanish national team.
And Morata was quick to send a heartfelt birthday message to De Gea as the Manchester United shot-stopper celebrated turning 27 on Tuesday.
Morata posted the picture above of the duo on Spain duty on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Happy birthday brother! Let’s hope we experience some amazing moments together! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🎉🎉🎉”
De Gea will be hoping to keep a clean sheet when Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break with a home clash against Newcastle.
Chelsea, meanwhile, travel to West Brom in their next Premier League game.
