Alvaro Morata made time to relax with his wife Alice Campello on Friday after enduring a difficult start to life as Chelsea’s most expensive player ever.
The 24-year-old missed a penalty on his debut in the Community Shield against Arsenal and then suffered a shock 3-2 defeat to Burnley as Chelsea were beaten on his Premier League bow.
Morata, who cost £70.6million when he arrived from Real Madrid this summer, scored against Burnley despite starting on the bench.

Morata had been expected to be a firm fixture in Conte’s starting XI from day one, but he has yet to start in either of Chelsea’s competitive fixtures so far this term.
Speaking to the media on Friday, Conte suggested that Morata was not yet fully fit.
Conte said: ‘In this moment some players have not 100 per cent of their physical condition.
‘Also Morata is another player who needs to continue to work and to improve’
Morata may not be the only Chelsea new-boy to make his first start this weekend, with midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko also in contention.
Conte added: ‘We have to face a difficult situation. For this reason I have to make a difficult decision.
‘Bakayoko could be in contention for the game against Tottenham, why not?’ (Story appeared in Daily Mail before last Sunday game against Spurs)
