?Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has claimed that he is not under as much pressure to score as many goals as other forwards in the Premier League, while citing Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino among the division’s best.
Morata arrived from Real Madrid in summer 2017 for £58m and has largely failed to live up to his lofty price tag so far.
After beginning his Chelsea career brightly, the Spain international suffered a nose dive in form around Christmas and struggled in the latter half of the 2017/18 season. However, the 26-year-old’s form has picked up in recent weeks, with three goals in his last two Premier League outings.
Despite his recent strikes, ?Morata evidently doesn’t feel like he needs to compete with the Premier League’s top marksmen in the goalscoring charts, while naming Firmino and Mane among the very best around.
“There is ?Hazard, there is (Sadio) Mane, (Roberto) ?Firmino, (Sergio) ?Aguero, (Harry) Kane.
“The important thing is to find the right balance. Now, I have, and I am very happy. I’m better.
Great job!! Great win at home with our fans!! Happy to score again!! Go Chelsea!! ?????? pic.twitter.com/ELrG1Z2uas
