Thierry Henry has admitted that Alvaro Morata did not have a good game at all for Chelsea against Arsenal on Wednesday night.

The Spanish striker had a number of chances to score for the west London side but failed to find the net during the thrilling London derby clash at The Emirates.

Morata missed one on one opportunities in both halves and failed to net for the second successive game in the Premier League for Antonio Conte’s men.

The 25-year-old has made a good start to life in England overall following his transfer from Real Madrid in the summer window.

He has scored 10 goals and made four assists in the Premier League for Conte’s side to help them up to third place in the table.

But former Arsenal star Henry has admitted that Morata did not have a very good game against the Gunners on Wednesday night during the thrilling 2-2 draw at The Emirates.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Henry said: “Nothing went his way against Arsenal.

“His first touch wasn’t that great and he wasn’t holding the ball well. You can see a striker not being great when he takes too many touches to put the ball down.”

Morata could be in line to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Norwich City in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

The west London side are aiming to try and defend their Premier League title this season after their impressive triumph last term.
