Alvaro Morata has just produced the best assist of the season

Chelsea's No9 showed incredible vision and technique to release Eden Hazard against West Brom

Diego Costa? Never heard of him.

This is Alvaro Morata’s world and we are all privileged to be allowed to live in it alongside him.

Chelsea’s No9 continued his impressive debut season in the Premier League with his eighth goal of the season away to West Brom.

The bow and arrow celebration came out

The Spaniard pounced upon a rebound when Ben Foster failed to palm Eden Hazard’s shot to safety.

But Morata’s predatory strike wasn’t his greatest contribution to the game.

His assist for Hazard’s goal (Chelsea’s second) was truly world class.

Cesc Fabregas passed the ball into his compatriot’s feet and one flick of Morata’s boot later saw Hazard through on goal with just Foster to negotiate.

The 25-year-old centre-forward exhibited incredible vision and sense of positioning to read the Belgian’s run…

The situation looked relatively harmless for West Brom…

A beautiful piece of work from Morata with his back to goal — target man play 101.

Kevin De Bruyne has produced some eye-catching assists so far this season but the strawberry-blonde Belgian will have to go someway to top this effort.

Antonio Conte’s men proved a class above the Baggies who succumbed to a 4-0 defeat at the Hawthorns.

Fabregas assisted for Marcos Alonso and Hazard’s second as the Blues’ strolled to three points.
