Yep. Still very averyage, despite being named MOTM, despite nice goal and beautiful assist. Average. (pun intended).

Average players have good games too.

he’s a good striker... will never be a great striker, but not mediocre/average either because of his physical attributes.

Still takes a specific system to play a striker like him, and have my doubts United is it.

His face when he scored is why I wanted him gone. Absolutely ego driven, more than anyone I can think of.

The thing is, fight can make an average player above average. The fight he showed in that burst at the end is something Morata doesnt have in the locker.

heh always thought fans overplayed "fight" and "desire", and something that can be mixed up with overall quality. Lukaku's not a donkey, a terrible player, so he has moments that his descent technique, in conjunction with superior physique, give him an edge; that makes him a good striker, not a great one.

Lukaku has one of the lowest work rate I've ever seen in a striker. When the football is not near him, he's not involved at all.

IMO Morata's issues are related more to his lack of physicality, than his desire That's the easiest (by far) weakness to correct in a player. So much so that we've seen it done hundreds of times before. Whether Morata has the drive to go through it (long hours at the gym), that's a different story. Morata has the technique and creativity that Lukaku will never have, so it makes sense to bet on Morata.

Seriously overplayed.

Funny thing is, without them, we would never have won the Champions League in 2012.

Quality won Chelsea the majority of their trophies.

Keyword was overplayed. Fight and desire matters but it only gets you so far.

True but same applies the other way round too. You can have as much quality as you want but if you don't "marry" that with the fight and desire, you won't get far.

Is it really that hard to understand? His point was quality matters a lot more. Now if you disagree with that, fine, but I would completely disagree with that. No point arguing either.
