Chelsea ace Morata: I chat regularly with Diego Costa

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has revealed he's in regular contact with Diego Costa.

Costa left Chelsea for Atletico Madrid in controversial circumstances this season, with Morata arriving effectively as his replacement.

"People remember him there," Morata said of Costa and Chelsea to AS. "I speak to him quite a lot. There was a chance that we might have played together but in the end that didn't happen."

Morata admits victory over Manchester United has lifted everyone at Stamford Bridge.

He continued: "We've started [the season] well but not everything has gone as we would have liked. We've slipped up in a couple of games and we can't afford to do that - you get punished for the smallest mistake in England.

"Only a while ago we were quite far behind United and City... but we beat United just before the international break and we are only one point off second place. We're hoping City drop points at some point but they're playing really well.

"[Azpilicueta] is amazing. We understand each other well and at Chelsea, the service we get off the full-backs works well. I'm very grateful to Cesar."
