Le Saux: United Got The Better Striker In Lukaku

Graeme Le Saux is not all that impressed with Alvaro Morata, despite his impressive start to life at Chelsea, insisting United got the better striker in Lukaku.

Chelsea and United moved to reinforce their striking position in the summer, the Blues were interested in Lukaku, while the Red Devils were keen on Morata.

The Belgium international eventually joined United for £75 million, with the Spain international joining Chelsea for £70 million and both have gotten off to a good start at their new home.

Pressed for his opinion on two leading marksmen, former Chelsea defender Le Saux told Betfair: “Alvaro Morata has shone in those two games [against Everton and Leicester], scoring in each.

“Chelsea were obviously in for Romelu Lukaku in the summer and missed out, but Morata is certainly doing enough to justify his transfer fee.

“At the moment you might say that Lukaku is the better striker, based on amount of goals scored, but Morata has huge potential.

“His movement is exceptional, and offers a different challenge to his predecessor at Chelsea, Diego Costa – who has tormented Arsenal in recent seasons – as he likes to get away from players and into space where he can do the damage.

“A few people in the summer questioned whether he would score goals in the Premier League but he has already proven them wrong which must delight everyone at Stamford Bridge.”
