Alvaro Morata

Has he had a shot on target with his feet yet? I don't actually remember one. In fact apart from a shot which was blocked by a defender against Leicester, which might have been going wide anyway, I don't recall any shots with his feet at all.

He didn't have too much support really and when he did we generally screwed it up.  I noticed that quite a few times he drifted wide, and his running / dribbling style is very much Torresesq.    I like him a lot, he is still learning and once he starts playing more often with Hazard they could become the best double act to watch this season.

Hazard will give him a lot more space to operate. Right now he's getting mauled because he's all we have up front. When Hazard is playing a full 90 they'll have to scale back their marking of him.

Think the officials weren't very fair to him as well. He showed a good burst of pace and skill to get past the defenders more than a couple of times but they were always physical with him. Shoving, pushing and when he wised up to it and also shoulder barged for a 50-50 ball he got a yellow. The officiating didn't help us as it was double standards throughout I feel.

The final ball was never there for him in the last match, we tried to do the Azpi early cross and it only succeeded the first time, but he was offside and the header went wide. After that Arsenal cut off the supply from the source and blocked Azpi from the early cross position and it never happened again.

From what I have observed so far - Moratta is not like Costa where in he can create a shot all by himself or convert on half chances. This may be more down to the fact that he is still learning the league, the team and himself. He plays good when there is support and in the Arsenal game we really offered nothing going forward. Willian and Pedro were shockingly poor and Cesc was bad as well - that is pretty much more than half our attacking support.
