Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is happy with the way he has adapted to life in a new division, but jokes that he now intends to start scoring with his feet.

Alvaro Morata has joked that he 'must start using his feet' after scoring all three of his goals for new club Chelsea with his head.

The 24-year-old has made a solid start to life in West London following a club-record move from Real Madrid during the summer, also adding a couple of assists to his tally.

Morata agrees with teammate Eden Hazard's previous assessment that it is time he started finding the net with his feet, but he is happy with the way that he has so far adapted to life in a new league following previous spells in Italy and Spain.

"At the moment, I've only scored and assisted with my head for Chelsea, so I hope to use my feet as well soon!" the London Evening Standard quotes him as saying. "But it's true that English football is different to Italy and Spain. You don't have much time to calm down, or relax, because all the time the ball is on fire!

"You need to be in good condition to play here and approach every match with a good mentality. In terms of the marking, it is probably the same here as in Italy with the teams that are maybe not at the top of the league – those teams are compact and it's hard for us sometimes to break them down.

"But when the other team wants to play with the ball, you can find space. That's when you find the spaces to attack the other team."

Spain international Morata has six goals and two assists overall in seven games for club and country this season.
