Chelsea star Alvaro Morata given training drill help by England striker coach Allan Russell to help get firing goals in again

Chelsea's misfiring forward has struggled this season with just three goals in all competitions.

But he looked on top form during a session with Pedro and Davide Zappacosta as part of Sure's Make Your Move campaign.

The players had to run to a coloured cone chosen at random by an iPad and beat the keeper from outside the box within three seconds.

They then had to score first-time finishes from the front and back post.

Every goal scored from outside the box was worth three points while those inside were worth one.





Morata began the challenge and scored some stunning goals from outside the box including an excellent chip.

He headed one cross away from inside the box but was deducted a point for missing a scissor kick.

The Spaniard finished the challenge with eight points.

Countryman Pedro outshone him and won the challenge with 11 points, while Zappacosta came last with four – but did bury an incredible scissor kick.

Russell will hope Morata did not learn too much from him as England follow tonight's Uefa Nations League clash against Croatia with a trip to Spain on Monday.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate credited Russell for the team's set-piece threat at the World Cup.


Southgate said: "Allan is spending more time on the set pieces.

“We’d identified them as key in tournaments, and an element we felt we could improve upon.

“It helps if you have outstanding delivery and people who want to go and head the thing, of course, and we’ve got that.

"No matter how much you control the play at both ends, set plays are really important."
