Chelsea news: Maurizio Sarri has got Blues playing ‘nicer’ but it’s hurting Alvaro Morata

That’s the view of BBC pundit Garth Crooks who has seen Chelsea start life under Sarri with four Premier League wins from four.

Morata has bagged once this season, that coming in a 3-2 victory over Arsenal, but the majority of the Blues’ goals have come from the players behind the striker.

Pedro has netted three times, including against Bournemouth in a 2-0 win on Saturday, while Eden Hazard has scored twice.

Sarri took the reins at Chelsea following the departure of Antonio Conte, with Jose Mourinho one of the many to have managed the club before then.

And Crooks believes Sarri has got the Stamford Bridge outfit playing more attractive football, though insists they need to work out how to get the best out of Morata.

“Chelsea have become a much nicer team to watch than they were under Mourinho, and to a lesser degree Antonio Conte,” Crooks wrote in his BBC Sport column.

“Nevertheless, it’s killing Alvaro Morata. For all of Chelsea’s fancy play, when is Morata going to get a decent ball into the box to attack?

“He’s not a Diego Costa and certainly no Didier Drogba but he is very capable of scoring goals with the right service, and Hazard and co need to start giving that.”

Sarri managed to keep Hazard through the summer despite reported interest from Real Madrid.

Having started the first couple of games on the bench, Hazard has impressed since earning a spot in the starting XI.

And the Belgian has sent a warning to the rest of the Premier League, insisting the best is yet to come.

“Of course, in the end we want to compete for the first three places,” Hazard said.

“We want to be champions at the end although we know it will be hard because Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are very strong.

“So we will see at the end, but we want to be at the top.

“I think we can move the ball quicker – in the first we were a bit slower. We can improve. We have the confidence.

“We have the international break now. We can rest a bit some players. We have a lot of hard games when we get back.”
