Mid Day - - SPORT - EPL LIVE TO­DAY Chelsea v Man City: Star Sports Select 1 & Select 1 HD, 22:00

Chelsea striker Al­varo Mo­rata says it is easy to play with Eden Hazard. Mo­rata headed in Hazard’s cross and Michy Bat­shuayi scored a last-gasp win­ner as the Blues won 2-1 away to Atletico Madrid in Cham­pi­ons League Group C on Wed­nes­day night.

Former Real Madrid striker Mo­rata now has seven goals in eight Chelsea games since mov­ing to Stam­ford Bridge as a di­rect re­place­ment for Diego Costa, who watched on from the stands after re­join­ing Atletico this week.

Mo­rata has adapted quickly to Chelsea, play­ing with Hazard and play­ing in the Pre­mier League. The Spain striker said: “It’s not dif­fi­cult play­ing with this kind of player. He’s one of the three best play­ers in the world. It’s easy for me play­ing with him.”
