Life in England is different and there is no second chance for a first impression, Chelsea star Alvaro Morata can testify.

Morata admits he got a harsh dose of reality after his missed penalty in Chelsea’s Community Shield defeat to Arsenal and the pressure is on him more than ever.

Why Chelsea sold Matic to Man United - Lampard

The 24-year old told Marca: “I admit it’s a very big fee but I have personality to play quietly and go my way.

“I have only played two pre-season games, 15 official minutes and a failed penalty – and they’re already killing me, so I know what’s ahead.

“It is the price that must be paid for such a large transfer. And it’s something that motivates me and makes me work harder every day.

“I know now twice as many people look at me.”

The hitman – who won two league titles with Juventus before doing the La Liga-Champions league double last year must hit the ground running to take the pressure off his shoulders as Chelsea begin their title defense at home against Burnley on saturday.
