How Morata Ends Goal Drought In Slim Chelsea Victory

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has ended his barrenness in front of goal after he scored the only goal of the game to give his side a slim 1-0 victory over Hungarian champions Videoton in their Europa League clash on Thursday night.

The Blues dominated proceedings from the blast of the whistle but lacked the ruthlessness and cutting edge to convert the chances that came their way during the Matchday 2 clash.

Chelsea struggled to break the deadlock until their star forward made a 54th minute entrance into the game at the expense of the ineffective Pedro Rodriguez.

Spanish international forward Pedro was making his first start since he suffered a concussion in their away game against Greek side PAOK on Matchday 1.

Brazilian national team star Willian got the only goal of the game to give Chelsea a 1-0 victory in the Europa League opener.

The introduction of Hazard injected the much needed verve and invention into the Chelsea attack and it was no surprise that he had a hand in Morata’s goal.

He was involved in the buildup as Willian teed up Morata to score from six yards out in the 70th minute thereby ending his goal drought dating back to the second week of the season.

It was his first goal in the Europa League after his 14th shot on target in the competition.

The slim victory stretches Chelsea’s less at the top of Group L to three points after a return of two victories from two games.
