Sarri sends message to Alvaro Morata ahead of Chelsea vs Arsenal game

New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has been buoyed by the performances of Alvaro Morata so far in training and match day and has advised the striker to continue improving.

The Spanish forward played the full 90 minutes for his club in the season opener against Huddersfield, but was unable to find the back of the net in their 3-0 success. Although, the new gaffer believes in his ability and has made it known to the general public.

The 25-year-old Spanish striker joined from Real Madrid after a loan to Juventus a season prior. He had a mixed season with the Blues in his debut season under ex manager Conte, but seems to be shy in front of goal during preseason which the new manager has attributed to his lack of confidence.

Via the Chelsea official website Sarri was quoted as saying:  “Against Huddersfield I think he was better than in pre-season.

“He needs to score, but every striker in the world needs to score.

“In the first half we had a problem pressing against their three defenders and it was a surprise for us because in pre-season Huddersfield had played 4-2-3-1, so this was their first time with three defenders and I had some problem in the first part of the game because of this.”

Chelsea are up against Arsenal on Saturday and the boss is hoping the lanky Spanish striker finds the net to boost his confidence for the remainder of the campaign.

His performances in training and his zeal to improve has informed the trainers unwavering believe that his goal scoring touch will return especially against Arsenal after he drew blanks against Huddersfield.

Arsenal on the other hand will be looking to bounce back from their not too convincing performance in their lost to City. A win is a most as defeat will almost be an uphill battle for the players and new manager.
