    Morata watching DVDs of Didier Drogba in bid to impress Conte

    Alvaro Morata has been studying DVDs of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba in a bid to improve his goalscoring form. The Spain international has made an impressive start to his Premier League career, but has scored only once in his last five matches and was rested for Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Huddersfield with Antonio Conte opting to select Eden Hazard in a false nine position. Morata, who has scored 10 times in total since his club record £58million move from Real Madrid, requested footage of Drogba upon joining the club in the summer and reveals he still studies the former Ivory Coast star.
    ‘I put it on at home so I improve with Didier,’ he told Chelsea’s club magazine, before explaining why he has been so prolific in the air this season, with six of his goals having come from headers. ‘When I was seven or eight, I got a trampoline. My dad used to say to me all the time, ‘come on with the head’ and then pass the ball to me as I jumped. I really think it’s helped my heading game because I practiced this all the time with my dad. ‘I found it funny when I was little to jump high and head or kick the ball, but it helped me for the future as well because the aerial game is one of my good points.’
