Alvaro Morata has responded to Eden Hazard‘s joke that he needs to start scoring with his feet, saying he is focused on continuing to net the goals for Chelsea.

Summer signing Morata has netted three goals in four Premier League games for the champions this season, although he was left on the bench for the Blues’ Champions League opener against Qarabag on Tuesday.

All three of Morata’s goals this term have been scored with his head, which led to Hazard lightheartedly saying the striker needed to start scoring goals with his feet.

The Belgian said after Chelsea’s 2-1 away win at Leicester, in which Morata scored the opener: “Like you saw, I saw he is a good player, I saw that he scores a lot with his head… now he needs to score with his feet.

“He is a top player. He can score every time. When he scores, we win the game so I think he is good.”

And when asked about his impact at Chelsea this season, Morata said: “At the moment, I’ve only scored and assisted with my head for Chelsea, so I hope to use my feet as well soon!

“But it’s true that English football is different to Italy and Spain. You don’t have much time to calm down, or relax, because all the time the ball is on fire! You need to be in good condition to play here and approach every match with a good mentality.

“In terms of the marking, it is probably the same here as in Italy with the teams that are maybe not at the top of the league – those teams are compact and it’s hard for us sometimes to break them down. 

“But when the other team wants to play with the ball, you can find space. That’s when you find the spaces to attack the other team.”
