Antonio Conte has joked that Alvaro Morata owes his compatriot, Ceasar Azpilicueta dinner after assisting another goal.
Azpilicueta sent a deep cross, which Morata connected with to open the scoring in the 2-0 win over Brighton.
The defender has now assisted six of Morata’s 10 goals, and Conte finds their link up play key to Chelsea’s game.
“Yeah, but he has to score also,” Conte joked, per ESPN, when asked about Azpilicueta. “As you know very well, Azpi is a defender with good feet.
“There is this great link between him and Alvaro. This wasn’t the first time [they combined for a goal]. I hope it continues in this way because we need his assists and Morata to score.
“Morata has to pay not one dinner but more dinners to Azpi. And, if they invite me, I want to go.”
