EDEN HAZARD and Willian deliberately avoided passing to Chelsea team-mate Alvaro Morata in the 2-2 draw with Manchester United, as indicated by Ruud Gullit.

The former Chelsea player and manager, 56, believes the wingers do not « trust » their Spanish striker and are playing their own amusements without supporting the ex-Real Madrid star.

Gullit told beINSports: « They don’t come into any positions where they make anything for him.

« The most noticeably awful part is you can see Willian and Hazard dependably spill inside in light of the fact that they don’t confide in him.

« It is difficult for a striker to play with these two who go inside constantly, you don’t know where to go.

« But also when the crosses are in, I think there was a moment in the first half where you asked « where is Morata », he wasn’t there. So they don’t confide in him. »

Morata has only two Premier League objectives this season, five less than Belgian Hazard, who was named Player of the Month for September.

His goal off the bench in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Southampton before the international break meant Maurizio Sarri picked him to begin against Jose Mourinho’s side rather than Olivier Giroud.

But the Spaniard struggled again yesterday in the 2-2 draw with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

He was substituted off following 79 minutes for Giroud meaning he has finished the full a hour and a half just once this season, on the opening day against Huddersfield.
