Morata impressed immediately in the Premier League, he managed to score 3 goals and assisted 2 goals in 4 matches, all with his head. There was doubt, that the former Real Madrid player would get used to the English football but he showed why Chelsea bought him for a record fee of £70m. The Spain striker admits that the Premier League is a very tough league because of the ball is “on fire” in English football but he still had a perfect start at his new club and he’s becoming more and more popular among the fans.
After the 6-0 win against the Azerbaijan side Qarabag, where the 24-year-old was rested, he said:
“At the moment, I’ve only scored and assisted with my head, 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 Teams 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.”
Morata already won the Champions League with Real Madrid and with Juventus he reached the final , here is what he said about the competition:
“It’s an incredible competition. With all the teams I’ve played for in the Champions League I have reached the final and I hope to do so this year too.
“It’s very difficult to win the Champions League, but I think we have a good team, and with a good mentality we can do good things.”
