Chelsea hero Dennis Wise throws a shock star to shoot the Blues to the Premier League title – EXCLUSIVE

Alvaro Morata

That's according to the blues legend Dennis Wise.

Chelsea suffered a disappointing final campaign under Antonio Conte last season, finishing fifth in the table, not qualifying for the Champions League.

Despite enjoying an impressive start after his move of £ 58 million in the summer from Real Madrid, Morata struggled to maintain his form and eventually lost his place in the team.

The 25-year-old was omitted from the Spanish national team and his time in West London seemed to have ended after just one season in the midst of transfer speculation linking him to AC Milan.

"If we can get Morata to put on his shooting boots then why not?"

But Morata has promised to stay and fight for his place under the new boss Maurizio Sarri.

The Italian has brought former Chelsea striker Gianfranco Zola to work with his strikers as he seeks to lead the Blues back to the top four.

And Wise insists that if Morata can recover his prolific touch, there's no reason why Sarri can not take them to the glory of the Premier League.

"Why not?" He said exclusively to Starsport when asked if Chelsea could win the title.

"If we can get Morata to put on his shooting boots then, why not, we have some quality, we really have something of quality.

"I think Gianfranco will help Morata to be able to reach that higher level.

"As in regards to reaching that figure of 20, 25 goals, because I think it's really important for Chelsea to get to that.

"I would not rule them out for sure, but I think that if you want to see where Chelsea want to be, they will want to enter the Champions League.

"That will be their first thought process and if they can really compete and really win this, only time will tell during the course of the season.

"Have they got the capabilities? Yes, they have the capabilities because they have the quality.

"And it's about that quality at the end of the day." Produce, that's what it's about.

"Last season unfortunately Morata only scored 11 goals in the league, it's not enough, right?

"We need more, we need more goals and I think that is important, if we look at the objectives against, we are competing with most of them, the best five teams, goals conceded, we are close.

"That is important for the end, but it is also winning the difficult games, when we have had those opportunities to win it and we have not taken advantage of those opportunities.

"We have to be a little more clinical in the front line."

Chelsea has strengthened well this summer, spending 130 million pounds on Jorginho and Kepa Arrizabalaga, in addition to adding Rob Green and Mateo Kovacic.

Sarri will hope to have a winning start as head of the Blues today, when they begin their Premier League campaign with a trip to Huddersfield (3pm).
