Chelsea defender's bold claim: "We Will Overtake Manchester City"

City's all-time leading scorer also became the third man to notch 150 times for a single Premier League club behind Thierry Henry for Arsenal (175) and Wayne Rooney for Manchester United (183).

Manchester City jumped to a 3-0 advantage in the first 18 minutes, with Southampton Dutch center back Wesley Hoedt opening the scoring on his own goal just six minutes into the game on Sunday evening.

Morata moved to Chelsea from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017, and made a strong start to last season.

"We need goals to win".

The long list of suitors for the PSG youth graduate includes La Liga leaders FC Barcelona, defending Premier League champions Manchester City, Serie A title holders Juventus and AC Milan, according to Mundo Deportivo.

"We couldn't do much against City's quality and sometimes you have to accept that reality", says Shakhtar coach Paulo Fonseca.

Tottenham trail Inter by 3 points ahead of the Italians' visit to London, and now occupy third spot in the group with a win, a draw and two losses so far. Perhaps once they're qualified the Blues boss will give Willy Caballero a chance but for now he'll have to make-do with a place on the bench.

"We know that to get to that chance, you have to get the three points like we did against Crystal Palace".

We still need to improve a lot, and we need time to understand completely and work on his football.

"In training, I try to argue why we should play this way".

Palace pulled it even eight minutes after the restart through Andros Townsend, but two goals in the space of five minutes, first from Morata and then Pedro, put Chelsea firmly in control of the contest. The ex-German global, who enjoyed a four-year spell at Stamford Bridge, believes that despite being already in the form of his life, Hazard must step up and accept more responsibility at the club as this will see Chelsea benefit as a result.
