Alvaro Morata scored a goal last Sunday as Chelsea routed Burnley 4-0 at Turf-Morr Park to be within the sphere of the title race. The goal took his overall tally to four in all competition for the Spaniard. The Spaniard has scored three goals in his last four starts for the Blues to prove that he is fair run of form.

Morata opened the scoring in the 22nd minute of the first interval, after being released with a through ball from English midfielder Ross Barkley. Barkley made it 2-0 12 minutes after the break, while goals from Willian and Loftus-Cheek wrapped off a perfect afternoon for Sarri’s Chelsea side.

Although Sarri expressed delight at him and Loftus-Cheek, the Italian admitted that he was disappointed that Olivier Giroud could not find the net.

Sarri told BBC Sport after Sunday’s thumping win: “For 10 minutes it was difficult at the beginning but then we played very well”. “I am very happy for Alvaro Morata and Loftus-Cheek again. I am disappointed for Giroud because today I thought he could score”. “He [Giroud] needs to score. At the end, everything is OK. We played very well in full control of the match for the last 80 minutes.”

Chelsea FC will return to action at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night when they host Derby County in the fourth round of the League Cup.

“At the moment we have to start to think about the next match,” he continued. “We play on Wednesday and we have a difficult game, we want to go on in the competition.”
