Is Morata The Latest Headmaster in Football
So much have been said about Chelsea’s new striker whose contributions to the team in terms of goals and assists have all come from his head.
Morata has thus far scored 3 Premier league goals and provided assists on two occassions, all with is head. Also, two of his 3 goals for Spain during the International break were header goals.
This has raised an “eyebrow” even among his teammates as to whether the Spanish striker could net with his feet. Recently, his last goal for Chelsea against Leicester means he’s scored more header goals (9) than any other player except Belotti (10) since 2016.
His instincts and rate at which he anticipates crosses is exceptional and can be likened to that of Cristiano Ronaldo. His teammate, Eden Hazard recently joked that he would like to see Morata score with his feet. Of course, everyone at Chelsea would be glad to see that happen soon
