Alvaro Morata has endured a tough few months at Stamford Bridge despite a bright start to life in England last season.

After battling with injury, the Spaniard found himself on the bench on numerous occasions under Antonio Conte upon his return.

Morata has now revealed that he is much happier after seeing a psychologist to help him deal with the pressure that comes with being a professional footballer.

"I think it's very important to have confidence. Things go well for you. In this period of my life, I have realised that you always have to train your mind. It's not only about being physically prepared. To withstand the pressure, you also have to work, it is the most important thing in our field," Morata was quoted as saying by ESPN.

"I had never thought about training the mind, really. When a player hears the word 'psychologist' at the first, you are taken aback, but I realised that I needed help.

"At first, I was a bit embarrassed to talk to the psychologist and tell him all my problems and with the help of everyone, I have managed to recover happiness in football.

"The idea of going to the psychologist, for anyone who has any problem, is associated with something negative. I think everyone sees it that way when it's really a very important thing. Now I am happier than ever at Chelsea and happier than ever in the national team even if it is not my best moment on the pitch.

"I've scored goals again, but it's not when I'm playing my best football. I will continue going to the psychologist, it helps me to manage the pressure and emotions."
