Former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle believes they’re a better team with Alvaro Morata leading the line over Diego Costa.

Hoddle says Conte’s Chelsea are better off without Costa, claiming Morata is the perfect replacement.

“Him [Morata] and Harry Kane are all-round centre forwards,” Hoddle told BT Sport.

“He can get headed goals. Plays off his left and off his right, he’s got great movement.

“Internally there’s no problems with him, he’s not going to cause a problem with team spirit and I think they’re a better team for it.”
