No more excuses for Chelsea striker Morata

But he believes he is getting mentally and physically stronger to deal with the heat of the Premier League.

The 26-year-old hit a brace in Sunday's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace, moving on to five Premier League goals for the season.

Speaking on Sky Sports Monday Night Football show, Jamie Carragher had a message for the negative Liverpool fans.

While Liverpool were on top of the log after Saturday's games, they have now dropped to the third spot as Manchester City reclaimed the number one position and Chelsea climbed to second spot. "That doesn't mean that Liverpool can't win the league".

Carragher outlined how the Reds can beat Man City to the title. I'm better. In the last month of last season, I was down, down, down, down.

If he stays fit and continues to have good quality chances created for him by his teammates, we'd back Morata to keep this up.


Morata has started seven times in the Premier League since Sarri took over the reins from his compatriot in the summer, while he has made a further three appearances from the bench. The important thing is to find the right balance.

"If you consider how many changes they can afford to make in their European tie compared with how many Chelsea will make in a couple of days it really is an eye-opener".

"It doesn't make sense to think like that because it puts you in a situation where you feel like you are not in charge". Sometimes people think we are not human, with no feelings, with no problems. But then you miss Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, United or whatever.

"It's like it is, and hopefully it stays like this until the end of the season".

Just as it seemed the Gunners would succumb to a 1-0 defeat at home to Liverpool, the Frenchman found the back of the net with a wonderful finish to earn Unai Emery's men a deserved point.
