Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata admits he felt the fans were against him during his goals drought last season.

Chelsea are set to cut their losses on Spanish worldwide striker Alvaro Morata in the January transfer window.

And Morata, who earned a recall to the Spain squad during the worldwide break, lifted the lid on his struggles both on and off the pitch over the past 12 months.

"I can finish with Chelsea", the Premier League's top scorer told Renault Match Zone, which will be shown on Sky Sports Premier League at 5pm on Friday.

"I left home to play the World Cup and I wasn't included in the squad anyway". I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here. I am happy when I am outside the pitch. I was really sad a few months ago.

"People used to love me, I scored seven goals in the first seven games at Chelsea". There was lot of tension and I didn't want to speak to anybody.

He continued: 'If you look at United on paper they should challenge but I just don't think Mourinho has any trust in his centre-backs and he doesn't know what his best pairing is.

Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017, with the Blues paying £65m for the Spaniard.

The 27-year-forward has been at Chelsea since 2012 and has made a huge impact at Stamford Bridge, helping the club to several trophies, including a pair of Premier League titles.
