Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances for Chelsea and all three goals have been with his head.

Morata admits he doesn’t care if he scores with just his head and he also revealed how training with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid and Fernando Llorente at Juventus helped make him a better header of the ball.

“If I score every game with my head, no problem. I don’t care if it’s a bobble off my knee or it goes in off my arse, a goal is a goal,” Morata told Daily Mail.

“At Real Madrid, I did heading drills with Cristiano Ronaldo. You see him go up for headers, that spring and power, he is a real beast.

“At Juventus, I saw Fernando Llorente, how he finds space and directs his headers. I like the physical challenge. Last week, I played against Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire… big guys. Cesc Fabregas was putting in good corners that I thought I could get to and bury but there were some coming in and I couldn’t even get a jump up against those guys.

“But then I got between them to score. You have to be clever. I’m not worried – at Juve I trained against Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci every day.”
