However, given his Real Madrid background, Morata insists the goal didn’t have extra meaning.
“It is always nice and special to score in a new stadium. I’m happy, but for the victory of the team; it has nothing to do with my past,” he said.
“I am very happy to have started the season so well, but I insist that the most important thing today was to win the game and take all three points.”
On Eden Hazard‘s performance, Morata added: “It’s always easy to play alongside someone like Eden, one of the best I’m very lucky to play with him.”
Chelsea ace Hazard added: “We are happy, it was a difficult match against one of the biggest teams in Europe, we did well and we scored two goals, although we deserved to score more.”
