Morata has been struggling for form January this year following a niggling back injury and his manage two goals from April till now. 

Luiz, who will be rested for tonight’s match against PAOK Salonika, believes Morata needs to keep calm if he is to rediscover his goalscoring touch.

Former PSG and Benfica defender told Standard Sport. "It is a good competition for Alvaro to make an impact like it will be for everybody.

"Forwards live for goals. Playing in the Europa League obviously means more games for us and, therefore, more opportunities for him [Morata] and Giroud to score.

"I’m going to be happy for both Alvaro and Olivier if they find the back of the net. Sometimes they are frustrated if they don’t score, but I tell them, ‘Keep calm, you played a great game. 

"But it’s good for a striker to have this feeling when they’re not scoring. They have to think this way.

Morata hopes to regain his starting spot in Thursday's Europa League clash with PAOK.
