Chelsea legend Ruud Gullit reckons Blues striker Alvaro Morata’s form is so bad that fellow attackers Eden Hazard and Willian do not trust the Spain international.
As so often has been the case since his £58 million move from Real Madrid last summer, Morata put in a massively under par performance this weekend in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Manchester United.
Despite getting the being given the nod by Maurizio Sarri ahead of World Cup winner Olivier Giroud, Morata offered very little in terms of link-up play or goal threat.
Gullit believes that Chelsea’s wide players Hazard and Willian have lost faith in the 25-year-old striker, who are constantly cutting inside as they do not believe trust Morata to win any balls crossed into the box.
“His team-mates don’t come into any positions where they create anything for him,” Gullit told beINSports
“The worst part is you can see Willian and Hazard always dribble inside because they don’t trust him.
“But also when the crosses are in, I think there was a moment in the first half where you asked ‘where is Morata’, he wasn’t there. So they don’t trust him.”
Despite Morata’s poor showing Ross Barkley’s 96th minute equaliser means Chelsea remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season after nine games and currently sit third in the table behind Liverpool and Man City.
