Chelsea are defensively solid but not too great offensively, but Cesc Fabregas's creativity drags them to a win. For this reason I'm telling you we're working very hard to try to improve our team.

In a very revealing interview with MARCA, Alvaro Morata admits the amount of money that Chelsea paid for him is very high, and that with that money comes heavy criticism. "But we are not naive - we know this is only the start of the season".
