Pedro Rodriguez talks up Alvaro Morata at Chelsea FC
The Chelsea FC star heaps praise on his Spanish compatriot Alvaro Morata following his better form
Pedro Rodriguez has warned Chelsea FC’s title rivals that Alvaro Morata is in a “very good moment” for Maurizio Sarri’s men.
The Spain international has rediscovered his goal-scoring touch over the past couple of months to suggest that Morata has finally turned a corner at Chelsea FC after a difficult end to the 2017-18 season.
The 26-year-old netted two times in a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge last weekend to take his tally to five goals in the Premier League before Sunday’s clash against Everton.
Morata will be hoping to continue that form in the next month or so leading into December, given that Chelsea FC have tough assignments against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City on the horizon.
The former Juventus striker netted just three goals in his final 24 appearances under Antonio Conte to suffer an alarming loss in form and prompt questions about his future.
Pedro, who scored the third goal in Chelsea FC’s 3-1 triumph over Crystal Palace, believes the Blues striker has hit top form after his excellent form in the past couple of months.
“He’s in good condition and he had a very good performance [against Palace],” Pedro told Chelsea FC’s website.
“He has the mentality to score goals and help the team, that’s the best way for him. We are happy because he’s a very good striker.
“He runs a lot and scores goals, now he’s in a very good moment so this is the way for him. Scoring goals is very important for him and the team.”
Morata became Chelsea FC’s record signing when he moved to the Blues in a £60m deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the 2017 summer transfer window.
That fee has since been eclipsed after Chelsea FC spent £73m on Athletic Bilbao and Spain goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga back in August.
Chelsea FC have relied upon Morata and Olivier Giroud to lead the line under Maurizio Sarri after his predecessor fell out with Diego Costa and sold the controversial Spain international last year.
