Video: “I Didn’t Know He Had That In His Locker” – Cesc Fabregas on Alvaro Morata

Video: “I Didn’t Know He Had That In His Locker” – Cesc Fabregas on Alvaro Morata

Cesc Fabregas has been speaking about his team-mate’s best assists from 2017… and admits he didn’t know Alvaro Morata had it in his locker to tee up Eden Hazard against West Brom.

Fabregas analyses assists from Willian, N’Golo Kante and even himself during his chat with Chelsea’s YouTube channel.

However, his blunt assessment of Morata’s assist skills is definitely the highlight.

Morata joined the Blues from Real Madrid in the summer, and having scored 10 goals in 15 Premier League matches, you would be forgiven for thinking the 25-year-old was a simple goalscorer.

The Spain international actually has four assists to his name though, the best of which came against the Baggies last month.

“I didn’t know he had this in his locker, so I was actually surprised by this pass,” Fabregas said.

“It’s all about trust, sometimes in football… and they [Morata and Hazard] understand each other very, very well.”

Morata has played 1271 minutes of Premier League football so far and scores a goal every 127  minutes on average.

However, with the above video showcasing his talents in linking up with his team-mates, Chelsea might just have a very special talent on their hands.
