Former Chelsea star Shaun Wright-Phillips thinks that Blues’ summer-signing Alvaro Morata has similar traits to club legend Didier Drogba.

The Spaniard has already scored seven goals for the Blues, and according to Wright-Phillips, if he keeps scoring at the same rate, it won’t take him long to share the same space with Drogba.

He told 888sport: “Morata is quick and he has an endeavour to get in the box when the ball goes in there. I’m enjoying watching Morata.

“He’s assuring Chelsea fans that they have nothing to worry about Costa leaving.

“I wouldn’t say that Morata is in Didier Drogba‘s space now but if he keeps scoring and running in behind and creating chances for others then he’s heading in that direction because he does the same things that Didier did.

“He runs into channels, he creates chances, and he finishes.”
