No more excuses for Chelsea striker Morata

No more excuses for Chelsea striker Morata

City goalkeeper Ederson upended striker Danny Ings and the former Liverpool striker scored with the spot-kick.

Eden Hazard, who returned from a back problem by coming on as a substitute against Palace, was included in the squad.

The Reds are now third, level on points with second placed Chelsea and just two points behind leaders Manchester City, with all three sides still unbeaten. Now, it's OK. In the last month of last season, I was down, down, down, down.

"I watched the game and Liverpool struggled a lot", Mateo Kovacic said.

These are the games where you need to concentrate a lot because if you don't, you lose. "In football, physical condition is very important, but the head is the most important thing".

Attentions will now gradually turn towards the forthcoming January transfer window, as Premier League clubs begin considering brining in some potential reinforcements for the midway stage of the season.

Chelsea still need to keep their momentum going, especially up front as they are scoring goals but still looking a bit dodgy at the back. Not for 90 minutes, but to play after two weeks without playing.

Chelsea recorded a 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge to stay within touching distance of reigning champions City.

While the lack of mention for Chelsea is baffling considering the impressive start made by Maurizio Sarri's side, it is seemingly a fair assessment from Carragher. The 21-year-old rose to prominence at the 2017 Toulon tournament, winning best player, and following in the footsteps of the likes of Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.

Asked about Morata's omission, Sarri replied: 'He played for three matches in a row, so I thought it was better to rest at Cobham and have good training. "All we can do is try to perform better in Belgrade when we welcome these two top teams".

Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe comes next in the list on 162 goals, with another ex-Reds forward, Robbie Fowler, bettering him by one (163).
