Alvaro Morata is making his mark at Chelsea, scoring goals in crucial games as well as providing match winners for his new side.
Cezar Azpilicueta has assisted five of Morata’s goals this season, after his cross found the striker unmarked in Manchester United’s box in the 55th minutes of the game on Sunday.
Their combo this season makes the duo the best at Chelsea this season, and the most prolific in the Premier League, as revealed by Opta. Bleacher Report produced the below graphic to hail the pair’s connection.

Azpilicueta’s pin-point crossing ability accompanied with Alvaro Morata’s aerial prowess makes it a deadly combination, and they proved that once again against the Red Devils at Stamford Bridge.
The mere fact that Azpilicueta has provided five assists from centre-back this term is testament to just how effective he has been when straying out of position to deliver the ball into the box. Long may this prosperous partnership continue!
