So this isn't meant to be a negative post BUT I am concerned about our lack of depth up front now I've seen Morata and Batshuiyi against a few different opponents.

Having Hazard back will help share the burden of goal scoring and creativity, but for the first time in a while, we ran out of ideas against a team that usually aren't great at defending. Morata is a raw talent but he is not currently good at being a target man and bringing other players in to the game. He's also not an upgrade in his levels of positive aggression on Costa. I'm certainly not saying saying I want Costa back, but I don't think defenders currently fear our frontline like they used to, and like they do currently with the 2 Manchester clubs. Not sure who I'd bring in now though. prices are so inflated currently.

Morata is trying too hard and it is effecting his composure on the ball which is usually very good. That lack of an additional strike force from midfield is a real problem and Hazard back in full flow will be a major asset BUT with an injury we will struggle so another player with creative ability but also the ability to score is a must. where is that young Lampard?

I disagree. Before the Arsenal-game, nobody doubted Morata, and I don't get why they should now - indeed he didn't have his best game, but nor did any of his teammates. Also, don't forget what usually happens with Diego Costa in the games where nothing is the way he wants it to be, the referee perhaps a bit against him, and the other players not playing at their best - a red card waiting to happen.
I agree, however, that we need to spread out our goal threats and not be over-reliant on Hazard or Morata having a bad day at the office. But also, let's not forget that Pedro has often shown the ability to create something out of nowhere!
And if the other teams don't fear our attackers, that's on them - if they under estimate us, that will only be our advantage!

Morata was isolated and done brilliant. If he'd of given silly fouls away like Diego we'd be moaning out him. He didn't get any help from surrounding players, it's that simple,

Morata reminds me so much of Osgood.
He has all the attributes of becoming a legend with our club.
The worst performances were:-
(a) Cahill., teams let him have the ball and then press. I would rather Rudi.
(b) Willian. Workrate isn't everything.
Sometimes a point is OK when your performance is just average!
Onwards and upwards. We will still be Champions come the end of the season!

Not a dissimilar build to Osgood with that knack of ghosting past defenders but he needs someone to feed him.

TomB, Ossie? Morata? Go wash your mouth out with soap!

Miss Wood, I hope, in time, we pay the same reverence to Morata as we all do to the King.

Dantheblue, sorry, I received the same amount of stick (thumbs down) for making this point earlier (when the transfer window was still open- then I was saying that the club should sell Batshuayi sign Belotti in addition to Morata) . I don't know if our fans are seeing the depth Man-U and Man-city has got.

I think you have a good point and you aren't being negative.
Is Morata good? yes he is and could still improve BUT my issue is with Batshuayi. Chelsea needs a stronger backup (better than Batshuayi) . If Batshuayi can improve (pending when Morata hits top form) best for us but as of now Batshuayi isn't cutting it for me.

There are still many wanting to keep giving Bats another chance but at 23 coming up 24 how long are we expected to wait. It is not as if he looks talented and just making mistakes, I am not sure what they saw in him to pay such a large fee. Many hate the comparison but Harry Kane is a similar age and look at the difference not least their goals to games ratio.
