Chelsea match-winner Alvaro Morata described his goal against Manchester United in Sunday’s 1-0 win as his most important since he joined the club.
The Spanish striker, who reportedly came close to a move to Jose Mourinho’s side before his eventual switch to the Blues, had gone six matches without a goal but delivered the game’s decisive moment in the 55th minute.
The win moves Antonio Conte’s side to within a point of United, who now find themselves eight adrift of Manchester City after the leaders prevailed 3-1 win over Arsenal earlier in the day.
Asked if it was his most important goal for Chelsea, Morata told Sky Sports: “For sure.
“It is important that we won. We had a very good chance today to come back to winning ways.
“We are happy now with the international break we can go with three points.”
