Drogba, who scored 164 goals during a glittering career with the club, has been hugely impressed by Morata's start to life in London.

"He is scoring goals that are winning games so I am really happy for him and for the club as well," Drogba told Sky Sports News.

"It is very important to score. As a striker, when you start with a new team, people have high expectations.

"When you match those expectations, you are just happy and the goals continue to come.

"I hope he will have a great season because we need that."

"He doesn't score much but when he does everyone is happy for him because he is working a lot for the team and giving everything," Drogba said of the midfielder.

"I was proud that he scored his goal. It was a very difficult game. It is always difficult to play at Leicester so I am happy with the result."
