Morata says his confidence has improved

Alvaro Morata says his confidence has been boosted by his two recent goals for Chelsea.

The Spanish striker has struggled since his move from Real Madrid and endured a torrid time in front of goal before scoring in his last two appearances.

He netted the winner against MOL Vidi in the Europa League and then scored after coming on as a substitute in Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Southampton prior to the international break.

Morata has admitted being less than happy with how things have gone for him in England – but says those goals and his recent performance for Spain against Wales have lifted his morale.

“I am very happy to be here and now I have to fight to play,” Morata told El Mundo, as reported by the Evening Standard.

“I have more confidence. Last week I made two goals for Chelsea and the other day, against Wales, I worked for the team.

“I am a happy person, especially off the field, outside of football.

“Within football I would like to be happier and for that I have to score more goals, which is what makes me happy.

“But I am sure that little by little they will enter, because I am having occasions.”
