Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is unsettled and looked worried at Arsenal - Ian Wright

ALVARO MORATA has struggled to settle at Chelsea and looks too nervous.

That is the belief of legendary Arsenal striker Ian Wright.

The former Gunners goalscorer knows exactly what it takes to flourish in the Premier League.

And after a bright start to his career at Stamford Bridge, Morata appeared to be on course for solid first campaign in England.

But his form dipped and an ongoing back injury has hampered his progress.

Antonio Conte left the Spain international, 25, on the bench against Barcelona last week and he failed to score from the start in Chelsea's 2-1 defeat at Manchester United on Sunday.

He looked particularly low on confidence during the Blues' encounter with Arsenal last month, as Morata missed a hatful of chances in the 2-2 draw in the league.

Player-turned-pundit Wright insists the £70m club-record signing from Real Madrid can't be happy at Chelsea.

"I just think he's not settling here for me personally," Wright said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

"He started scoring those goals and when you come to new shores and a new club, he's in London, and he's scoring, you think 'ah brilliant, this is great'.

"Then all of a sudden his form stopped instantly like that.

"You watched him in games and, he's a quality player, his touch is not good, he's going down very easy.

"I saw the chances he had against Arsenal and he was more worried about where the defenders were rather than going through on goal.

"He had two great chances in the game and it seems like his confidence has totally gone.

"When that happens I think that's because you're not happy, something's not right for you and he can't be happy.

"I don't think he's settling here as well as people might think."

The Blues have been linked with a move for Bayern Munich hitman Robert Lewandowski ahead of the summer.

And should he join, it would certainly leave questions marks surrounding Morata's future at Chelsea.
