Everyone Compared Morata To Torres After What He Did Against Leicester City
Chelsea's new No.9 did something very similar to a previous player who wore that iconic shirt.
Alvaro Morata arrived at Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in the summer, and was handed the No.9 shirt formerly worn by Fernando Torres.
And the Spanish frontman bagged another goal for Chelsea, after brilliantly heading home against Leicester City on Saturday.

While the Chelsea faithfuls celebrated his third league goal of the season, they also noticed something else.
As Morata wheeled away in celebration, he performed Torres' trademark archer gesture.
Needless to say, Chelsea fans loved it.

It's clear that Fernando Torres is Morata's role model. Same playing style, same goals, same celebration as well. #CFC- Naziho (@Naziho_Torres9) September 9, 2017

Despite winning the Champions League and UEFA Cup as well as the FA Cup during his time at Chelsea, Torres' career in West London wasn't as prolific as his days during Anfield.
Chelsea will be hoping their new Spaniard will endure a more prolific spell at The Bridge.
