Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is confident he is at the start of a great career at the Premier League champions after an impressive performance on his official debut for the club.

Morata came on with 20 minutes left in Saturday’s 3-2 home defeat to Burnley and almost turned the game around for his side.

The £70m signing from Real Madrid scored with a brilliant header after clever movement to make it 3-1, before flicking on a delightful ball for David Luiz to make it 3-2 for nine-man Chelsea.

Although disappointed to start his Chelsea career with a home league defeat, Morata was upbeat afterwards on social media.

“The match didn’t go as we expected, but this is just the beginning! #goChelsea,” he tweeted.

Sam Vokes bagged a brace as Burnley stunned the champions, who had Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas sent off.
