Maurizio Sarri has indicated that he is happy with Alvaro Morata’s good form at Chelsea FC in recent weeks.

The Spanish striker, like his other Chelsea FC team-mates, has been getting used to life under Sarri following his appointment as the Blues’ new manager back in July.

Morata has made something of a slow start to the new campaign but he seems now to be finding his feet under new boss Sarri.

The former Real Madrid star scored a header in Chelsea FC’s 4-0 win over PAOK in the Europa League on Thursday night to net his seventh goal of the season for the Blues.

And Sarri has clearly been impressed by what he has seen from Morata in training and in games in recent weeks.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Thursday night, Sarri said of Morata: “His attitude is not a problem for the group or for me. In training he is doing very well, in the last month he has scored, it is not a problem.

“With his new haircut he scored with a header, so it’s OK!”

Morata will be hoping to feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues host Fulham at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday lunchtime.

The west London side are aiming to at least break back into the top four this season after they finished fifth last term and won the FA Cup under Antonio Conte.
