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.

Do you think the transfer fee of 80 million euros will weigh heavy on you?

"I can admit that it is a very significant amount, but I have the character to be able to play calmly and to follow my path. I have only played two pre-season matches, I've played 15 official minutes and I've missed a penalty [in the Community Shield shootout] and they're already killing me, so I know what to expect. That's the price you must pay for such a big transfer. It's also something that motivates me, that makes me work harder every day and that makes me spend an hour longer at the training ground. I know that double the number of people are now watching me."
