Has Alvaro Morata been an upgrade on Diego Costa at Chelsea?

Alvaro Morata was the villain of the piece as Chelsea failed to beat Arsenal on Wednesday night. The current champions had the better chances and should have put the game beyond doubt before Hector Bellerin popped up with an incredible equaliser. The Gunners showed good heart to avoid defeat, but they shouldn't have been given the opportunity to get back into the match. The visitors' striker has scored goals this season and appeared to be a decent addition, but yesterday's …
