Chelsea fans will love what Alvaro Morata said about knocking Liverpool out of Champions League


The striker never lived up to his £60million price tag at Stamford Bridge but after leaving he will have delighted the supporters in west London by scoring against Liverpool.

Alvaro Morata did little to impress the Chelsea supporters during a two-year spell in west London.

He managed 24 goals in 72 appearances in all competitions - a goal every three games - failing to enamour himself with the Blues faithful.

But he did something they certainly would have enjoyed on Wednesday night by scoring the third goal in a 3-2 win for Atletico Madrid over Liverpool in the Champions League.

It meant Atletico won the last 16 tie 4-2 on aggregate knocking the Reds out of the competition and meaning they would not go on to defend their crown.

Liverpool dominated proceedings, but it was Diego Simeone's famed defensive approach that won them the tie and handed them a place in the last eight of the tournament.

And Morata knew it was going to happen. It appears the Spanish striker is something of a soothsayer, having predicted the very result four months ago!

Speaking to COPE in November, the former Chelsea striker said, before either club had made it through to the knockout stages: "Liverpool may play against Atletico and may not reach the Champions League final.

"You never know. This is football; every team has their methods and we play our football."
