Arsenal hero: Lacazette not in same class as Chelsea striker Morata

Arsenal hero: Lacazette not in same class as Chelsea striker Morata

Both Morata and Lacazette will be hoping to start for their respective clubs in the crunch showdown between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday.

But other rumours have run for years and years, without ever turning into done deals.

Arsenal have beaten Chelsea in their last two clashes with the Blues, in the FA Cup final and Community Shield at Wembley.

Morata has scored three goals and made two assists in four Premier League appearances for the west London side since his move to Chelsea and he seems to be quickly adapting to the rigours of English football.

A lack of supply from his teammates could be highlighted by Lacazette's fewer shots, although he has been more clinical than Morata, converting 30 per cent of his chances compared to 21 per cent from the Chelsea striker.

"I like Lacazette, I think he is a good player - but Morata is top top draw".

The strikers arrived in the Premier League as record transfers for their clubs in the summer as Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid for £65 million, while Lacazette moved from Lyon to Arsenal for £52 million. The Gunners will wonder how they are not ahead in this game after a goalless first 45 minutes.

This has led to the Spaniard being directly involved in a goal or an assist, on average, every 55.6 minutes. It's like when you watch something and someone's done something in 15 minutes and you think 'wow, they can play' and he done that about five times.

"I like Lacazette don't get me wrong, but if I was playing Real Madrid on Saturday he would play in front of Lacazette".
