Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has disclosed why he dropped striker, Alvaro Morata in his side’s Premier League 2-0 victory over Manchester City on Saturday.
Goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz ensured victory for the Blues against Pep Guardiola’s side at Stamford Bridge.
Sarri, who started the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro ahead of Morata said that his decision not to feature the Spain international against City was ‘tactical’.
When asked why Morata did not feature against City, Sarri told BT Sport: “It’s tactical because with the side to start with Eden in another position so I think it’s useless to have two strikers on the bench.”
“I don’t know because in Manchester City maybe because they have out [Sergio] Aguero,” Sarri added.
“Today maybe for the first time in Premier league there is the opportunity to have more spaces. I prefer to play faster football.”
Sarri’s men now sit on third positions on the Premier League log with 34 points from 16 games
