Alvaro Morata has revealed that his wife has been playing a huge role in helping him to adapt to life at Chelsea.

The Spanish striker has been getting used to life at Stamford Bridge after having signed for the west London club from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

Morata has made a strong start to his Chelsea career, having scored seven goals and made three assists in his first 10 games in the Premier League.

However, his Blues career got off to something of a rocky start after he missed a penalty in Chelsea’s Community Shield defeat by Arsenal back in August.

But Morata has revealed that his wife Alice Campello has helped him to relax away from football and feel less stress when he’s not playing.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper AS, Morata said: “When I first arrived, I missed a penalty in an important match, the Community Shield against Arsenal and I really felt the pressure at that moment.

“My wife helped me to get over that. She’s everything to me – as I am always telling everyone.

“Before, whenever we lost a game and I played badly, I’d lock myself in my room and wouldn’t talk to anyone. That’s changed now.”

Morata will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues return to Premier League action after the international break with a trip to The Hawthorns to take on West Bromwich Albion.

The west London side currently find themselves in fourth place in the Premier League table and nine points behind leaders Manchester City after 11 games of the new campaign.
