Chelsea’s head coach, Maurizio Sarri says Alvaro Morata needs confidence to be at his top form of scoring goals.
Alvaro Morata didn’t find the back of the net in Chelsea’s Europa League opener against PAOK after missing three to four chances.
Although, Maurizio Sarri is pleased with Morata performance throughout his 80 minutes appearance in the game but says he needs to find confidence with one, two three goals.
“Alvaro has to gain confidence with one, two three goals,” Sarri told his post-match media conference. “I am not able to give him confidence.
“In this match he had three or four opportunities. He was unlucky. I hope for him in the future I can help him. But the confidence can come with goals.
“Maybe two goals in two matches, I don’t know. For the first time in this season he was ready in the box. He was on the ball and was active.”
Morata’s struggles were not the only frustration for Sarri, who felt Chelsea should have widened their advantage – the Blues having created 22 chances across the 90 minutes.
“I think that we played very well. It was difficult for people to play against us this evening. I think we were so good,” he added.
“I think we were in control of the match for 90 minutes.
“We had a lot of opportunities. I am very happy with the three points, but not the result. We didn’t kill the match.”
