Eden Hazard has heaped praise on Alvaro Morata following his strong start to life at Chelsea FC.

The striker has been settling into life in west London after having signed for the west London club from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

Morata has scored 10 goals and made four assists in the Premier League for Antonio Conte’s men and seems to be adapting to the rigours of English football pretty well.

The 25-year-old forward is currently out injured with a back problem and Conte confirmed on Friday that he is not yet sure when Morata will be back available again.

However, Hazard, who has been getting used to playing alongside the striker in recent weeks, has been impressed by the way Morata has been adapting to life at Chelsea FC.

Hazard said in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca: “Yes, he’s very happy. He’s scoring although he’s a bit injured and he can’t help the team.

“But we have a lot of Spaniards and it helps his adaptation.

“He’s a fantastic player and he will score a lot of goals for us, I’m sure.

“He can score with both feet and his head, it’s incredible.”

Hazard will be expecting to feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Premier League action on Monday night with a home clash against West Bromwich Albion.

The west London side are desperately looking to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of losing their last two Premier League games to Bournemouth and Watford.
