The Blues are unbeaten after 11 Premier League games and are just two points behind leaders Manchester City.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is a man in form after scoring three goals in his last three games for Chelsea and he admits he must score more goals if Chelsea are to fight for the Premier League title.

“At the end of the season, if we want to fight for the Premier League, I need to score many goals,” Morata said.

“Eden [Hazard] has to score many goals, the other strikers, Willian, Pedro, [Ross] Barkley.

“There is Hazard, there is [Sadio] Mane, [Roberto] Firmino, [Sergio] Aguero, [Harry] Kane. This is the league with the best strikers in the world. I don’t need to think about scoring more goals than other players.”

Morata struggled for form last season and he admits his mentality was poor last season.

“In football, physical condition is very important, but the head is the most important thing,” Morata added.

“If you don’t have the head, if the mentality is not good, then you are in trouble.

“I had a period where everything… if it is raining, I’m angry because it’s raining. If I miss, it’s because the pitch is too wet. It was only excuses. It is not good.

“Everyone can have a bad period in their life, but we are famous, we have a lot of things. Sometimes people think we are not human, with no feelings, with no problems.

“The important thing is to find the right balance. Now, I have, and I am very happy. I’m better. In the last month of last season, I was down, down, down, down. I cannot be more down. When you touch the limit, the only thing you can do is to come back.”
