    Morata's all goalscoring chances vs. Arsenal + Thierry Henry's comments during HT on Sky Sports

    Streamable


    Torres used to be a very highly rated young talented striker back in the days

    And tbf, Atletico were faaaar from being the same team they are today.

    Which makes Torres' output fairly impressive.


    At the very least, Cavani scored a goal during that 1-1 result from PSG-Arsenal game.

    I guess by now converting 1:1s can be added to Morata's general deficits, along with an insufficient physical game. Although, as someone said on the previous page, regularly getting into these positions (which he does) is a good sign and a good basis for improvement. But there's quite a bit of work to be done for him to establish himself as an elite striker.

    Second in "Big chances missed" with 14, first is Salah with 15.

    Also he might have scored few headers with brilliant supply but he wins less number of aerial duels than Lukaku and with worse success rate. If we go by just goals then Aguero is second best and Lacazette 7th.

    Hold up - YOU want to tell ME how stats work and your rebuttal is simply the definition of statistics????

    I'll try to remain civil and end the discussion just by saying that you really don't seem to have a clue.

    I think this is strictly a first season finding his feet and adjusting to the quickness of the game here in the PL. Players from other leagues don't always adjust quickly to how little time they actually have to make a decision when the ball is at their feet or coming towards them. The fact that Morata is actually getting into positions to miss those sitters/chances, proves that he has a striker's mind. Once he gets adjusted, if his confidence hasn't been shot to bits, he will be a good striker for a certain style of team setup.

    Having said that, I still think Lukaku still fits what Jose's team needs better at this moment in time.

    There is so much going on in that video. Ozil, Bellerin in a tutu, Costa, Fly Haemorrhoids, Cech's sign about JT .

    This season, top teams all have strikers that are good but not world class. Morata, Lukaku, Lacazette, Firmino, Jesus.

    Spurs are the exception.

    Spurs got lucky that an academy product is the second coming of Alan Shearer, otherwise they would be stuck with a run of the mill striker.

    Firmino is a level above the rest in that list. Doesn't deserve to be mentioned with them, tbh.

    He scores and assists consistently and helps the game of his teammates. No white text for sure, I rate him.

    Nothing wrong with rating him (I rate him as well), but if he's a level above the rest then he's gotta be one of the top strikers in the world?

    If he's a level above them but not one of the best; then you must be using some quantum formula to decided that Firmino is just above them but a bit below the best strikers in the world.

    Its' not cut and dry like that. Fact is, Firmino is a better player than Lukaku, Lacazette, Morata and Jesus. Much better.

    This is a Morata thread so no point in clogging this thread. I like Firmino and I understand why you think that. He is a tidy forward.

    On the evidence of the season so far, Lukaku is a cut above Morata and Lacazette.

    He looks more a second striker.

    Allegri agrees with you. He was used as a second striker at Juve.

    He's clearly struggling for form and/or confidence at the moment. He's a cracking player, though. He'll still score a decent amount over the course of the season.

    Is he trying to rival Bakayoko as the worst signing of the summer? :smirk:

    He’s a bit of a tit. Really poor finisher in recent weeks/months too.

    He's constantly complaining about decisions every single game - finally he's got his just desserts.

    Poor finisher, worse diver. He's been getting away with it though, until today.

    Morata getting sent off was the worst possible thing to happen to Norwich

    No chance he’d even hit the net on a penalty :lol:

    He needs to stop falling around like a child. He does that way too often and he got his punishment for that. He is a good player but his attitude has a big question mark. Reminds me a lot like Di Maria for us.
