CHELSEA - Morata: "I missed a penalty and they're already killing me..."

CHELSEA - Morata:

Alvaro Morata will have been left disappointed by his competitive debut in the Community Shield defeat to Arsenal, but fears critics are already attempting to write him off at Chelsea.

The Spain global made his competitive debut as a 74th-minute substitute in the clash with Arsenal at Wembley and missed from 12 yards as his side lost 4-1 to the Gunners in the shoot-out following a 1-1 draw. I've only played two friendlies and 15 minutes in an official game. I've understand what I have ahead, but I know that's the price to pay for such a big price-tag. It's something that motivates me and makes me work harder every day.

When asked by Marca how many goals he was aiming to score this term Morata replied: "I wish I could score more than 20 goals!"

The Spaniard was told earlier this summer by the Italian that he was no longer a part of his plans. I wasn't fresh and I couldn't train well.

"I am trying to adapt to a new philosophy and a new manager".

"I know Chelsea have invested a lot to have me here but I have enough personality to remain calm".

West Ham reportedly plotting whopping £25million offer for European Champion
West Ham have reportedly offered £25million (€27.6m) to try and sign Arsenal target William Carvalho from Sporting Lisbon . And according to Sky Sports news reporter Tom White, the Portugal global wants a move to the Premier League.

"At Real Madrid, certainly, he was in and out, so the main pressure for Morata is to say, 'Here I am, I'm the No.1 striker and I can take this all on'. In a way, I felt indebted to him because he signed me for Juve and then had to go".

Chelsea are preparing for their first fixture of the Premier League season without Diego Costa who has fallen out with Antonio Conte. I had talked to him many times.

Morata, twice a Champions League victor with Madrid and a league champion in Spain and Italy, is determined to enjoy success with Chelsea after making the tough decision to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.

The hitman - who won two league titles with Juventus before doing the La Liga-Champions league double past year - added: "I wish I could put more than 20!" It's my job. But it is not an obsession for me ahead of winning titles for the team. But it was a personal decision; it was to do with sporting ambition.

"I'm at the best place to do that".
