Alvaro Morata believes critics are already “killing” him at Chelsea, although the striker accepts his price tag invites extra scrutiny.

The Spain international made his competitive debut as a 74th-minute substitute in the clash with Arsenal at Wembley and missed from 12 yards as his side lost 4-1 to the Gunners in the shoot-out following a 1-1 draw.

Morata, who joined from Real Madrid for a reported initial fee of £58million, had only made two International Champions Cup appearances for Chelsea prior to last Sunday’s encounter following a lengthy transfer saga.

“I admit it’s a very important amount but I have the personality to play calmly and to stay on my path,” he told Marca. “I’ve only had two pre-season games, 15 minutes officially and a missed penalty, and they’re already killing me, so I know what’s ahead.

“It’s the price you have to pay for such a big transfer. It’s something that motivates me and makes me work harder every day. I know that twice as many people are looking at me now.
