Conte backs Chelsea striker Morata after Burnley outburst

by -

Alvaro Morata had an outburst after his substitution in the 71st minute following Victor Moses’ winner at Turf Moor on Thursday night.

The Spaniard had a promising start of the season with Chelsea, with 9 goals in the first 8 games, but then he was unable to maintain a same level.

Up to now, he’s got a score of 11 goals netted in 28 games.

Speaking to his pre-match media conference ahead of FA Cup semifinal against Southampton, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said:

“Alvaro must be angry because when you have a chance to score, you have to score, especially for a striker.

“A lot of the time scoring changes your confidence. I think he was very angry with himself for this chance he missed, but I have to look at his whole performance and I am very happy even if he didn’t score.”
