Chelsea legend Frank Lampard believes that the link between Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata make Chelsea dangerous.
Chelsea broke the bank for signing Morata from Real Madrid this summer. The player has so far made a strong start to his career at the Stamford Bridge.
The striker has made 15 appearances so far in all competitions this season scoring 8 goals and provided 3 assists.

With the loss of Diego Costa, Chelsea needed to find a replacement if they were to fight for titles on 4 fronts. They managed to land the Spanish international after striking a deal with Real Madrid.
While many had doubts about this man, others believed in him. Morata has so far proved his doubters wrong and hopefully keeps the same form for the rest of the season.
Eden Hazard has always been a fan favourite and is the most dangerous player on the field on his day. The Belgian has taken the Blues to another level. Linking up with Morata has made Chelsea even more dangerous.
One man, in particular, has really enjoyed this combination – Frank Lampard.

While speaking to Omnisport, Lampard said: “For me, Eden Hazard is the key player for Chelsea.
“I think when Eden Hazard is on form and playing well, he’s the extra quality that takes Chelsea to the top.
“He did it last season, he did it 2 seasons before when Chelsea won the league.
“I think he’s improving and he’s in his prime, and particularly the link between Hazard and Alvaro Morata, when they are playing close together at the top of their game, makes Chelsea a very dangerous team.”
