Didier Drogba has been left pretty impressed by Alvaro Morata’s start to life at Chelsea. The Spaniard has indeed made a brilliant start to his career with the defending champions and has registered three goals and two assists in his first four matches in the Premier League.
Morata most recently scored in Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Leicester to help Chelsea gain the third position on the Premier League table. Drogba feels that Morata will be the key for the Blues if they are to defend their Premier League crown.
