“Morata is a quality player, fast and technically gifted,” Sarri said.

“He’s a sensible person and the difficulties had hurt him.

“The results and the quality of our football are positive.

“18 games without a loss in such a competitive reality show that we’re on the right track.”

Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud, who has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, is happy with the level of competition.

“I am going to fight and for the moment, it is not a question about seeking a departure.

“I am going to stick in there and do not count on me to give up.

“The coach has introduced healthy competition.

“Morata started again, he played well.

“It is true that we were having issues in the effectiveness department, he scored, and things are going better.”
