When Chelsea signed Alvaro Morata in the summer, the general perception was that they had missed out on Romelu Lukaku and the Real Madrid hitman was their second choice.
Boss Antonio Conte made it very clear that Diego Costa - the club's top goalscorer for the past three seasons - was no longer needed in west London and infamously let the Brazilian-born Spanish international know via text message.
Lukaku has scored 10 goals in nine games for his new club, but Morata has made a superb start at Stamford Bridge too with seven goals in eight games.
The 24-year-old scored the Blues' first goal in their impressive 2-1 away win over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League this week and according to Marca, there's one major reason he decided to move to Chelsea.
"I came to Chelsea because one club and one coach believed in me. Now I have all of these things and I'm very happy," Morata said.
"Was it a big move for me to become the first-choice striker? It's the most important thing," added Morata.
While Morata may or may not have been first-choice at United, it seems as though Conte truly believed the former Juventus man would be the perfect replacement for the outgoing Costa and thus far, he's been exactly right.
The Premier League is a very different league to what Morata has been used to, but he has adapted with ease.
"It's the most competitive league in the world. Yes, it's physical. And it's the league with the most teams who can win the title," the Spanish international said.
"There are strong teams, but we're very happy because we're fighting for the Premier League too."
Chelsea's next test comes in the form of the unbeaten Manchester City at the weekend and Morata knows the importance of an early victory over their title rivals.
"It's another big match, another big Premier League match. It's very important for us before the international break to take the three points."
