Alvaro Morata was delighted to score in Chelsea‘s win over Leicester City.

The Blues moved up to third in the Premier League table following a victory – our third in a row – which was secured thanks to goals in each half from Morata and former Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante.

Morata, who opened the scoring with a brilliant header four minutes before the break, has now netted three goals in his first four Chelsea appearances.

“It was a very important win,” said the striker. “Against teams like Leicester it’s always very difficult and we suffered in the last minutes having been 2-0 up, but that’s the Premier League.

“I’m feeling good but we are not in first place, which is the most important thing, so we must keep working.”

Morata was involved in an incident late in the game, when his header looked to have been handled by Leicester defender Harry Maguire, which could have led to a Chelsea penalty.

“It’s difficult to see for the referee because the game is fast,” he said. “I don’t know if it was penalty or not but I was near the situation and even I didn’t see it perfectly, so it’s tough for the referee.”
