Chelsea new boy Alvaro Morata has done nothing but impress since he switch the Santiago Bernabeu for Stamford Bridge in the summer – and has continued to do so with his latest Instagram post, capturing him doing kick-ups with a piece of chewing gum.

It was a craze first started when Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil was caught casually warming up for a match. The German playmaker spit out his gum, kicked it up a few times, and caught it again in his mouth before giving a cheeky wink to a teammate. Oozes cool.

Since then, we’ve seen many stars attempt it. Some have succeeded, others haven’t – but now Morata has taken the crown…with ease.?

After scoring his first hat-trick in a Chelsea shirt away to Stoke on Saturday, Morata spent his Sunday morning relaxing with a round of golf. Either that, or he got his mate to stand there and record him with his gum for a few hours, waiting to nail the move.

Six kick-ups and a cheeky around-the-world before catching it in his mouth again puts Mesut to shame – although there was no wink; more a sly grin before walking off onto the green, likely to sink a no-look putt or something. He can’t do anything wrong right now.
