How Morata is outshining Madrid's 'BBC'

Jack Ottman by Jack Ottman @jackottman - 0 5,224

Chelsea's new striker, Alvaro Morata as enjoyed a superb start to the season. The Spanish international already has scored five times when you combine his Premier League goals and his exploits with his national side.

Having left the Bernabeu just a few weeks ago, the fans are already missing him at Real Madrid. The 'merengues' lack are lacking a striker who can pack a punch in front of goal, something which the Spaniard has already demonstrated several times during this campaign.

And, as reported today in 'Mundo Deportivo', Morata has overtaken the famous 'BBC' (Benzema, Bale, Cristiano) in terms of goalscoring at the start of this season.

With two goals in his first three Premier League outings at Chelsea and three more with the Spanish national side, Morata now has five goals in total so far this year.

This is a far cry from Los Blancos stars Bale and Benzema, who have managed just one goal between them this season, with thousands of missed chances causing frustration amongst the Madrid faithful.

With regard to Cristiano Ronaldo, his five-game ban has left him behind Morata in terms of goals and minutes played. The Portuguese star has just four goals so far, one with Real Madrid and three more with his national side.

To top if off, the French and Welsh stars have played more minutes than the Chelsea striker, something which has further upset the Real Madrid fans. Benzema has played 411 minutes and Bale, 489 minutes. These stats are compounded when compared to Morata, who has managed his five goals in just 313 minutes, and Ronaldo, who has four goals in 212 minutes.
