The former Chelsea striker believes that the Spain international has to be more clinical if he wants to succeed at Stamford Bridge.

Andriy Shevchenko, a former Chelsea forward who is familiar with the pressure of being an expensive purchase, has urged Morata to work on his finishing if he wants to be successful

The Spaniard joined Chelsea following a £58m move from Real Madrid in the summer. And while Morata started his career in London with seven goals in his first seven games, he has added only five more to his tally – the last one being on Boxing Day.

The Spainiard’s struggles in front of the goal are much alike Shevchenko’s when he joined Chelea in 2006. The Ukranian scored just nine Premier League goals in 48 caps for the Blues and knows very well the position Morata has found himself into.

“I’ve seen a lot of him,” revealed Shevchenko, according to ESPN.

“He’s had a lot of chances. I think you need to improve the finishing when you have chances.

“It’s good when a striker has chances, it’s very positive. You need this for scoring goals and helping the team to win.”
