Alvaro Morata Had A Very Embarrassing Moment Filming An Advert
Alvaro Morata may have scored in the 4-0 win over Burnley on Sunday but with four goals in 13 appearances this season, he's not exactly been firing on all cylinders.
And even worse for the Spaniard, he experienced a very humiliating moment whilst filming an advert.
Morata, in his Spain colours, was doing a shoot where he was tasked with beating a defender in a 1v1 situation and then scoring past the goalkeeper. Easy enough for a professional footballer, right?
Well, it kind of went horribly wrong for the former Juventus and Real Madrid striker. He flicked the ball into his shirt, carried it to get past the defender and then all he had to do was slot past the man in between the sticks.

However, he somehow managed to hit the post from mere yards out and couldn't believe his luck.
Morata scored seven goals in his first seven games for Chelsea before his form fizzled out big-time. He clearly suffered with a loss of confidence and admitted he endured a difficult period last season.

"I've learned many things from last season. It was very difficult for me," Morata said in an interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo.
"I left home to play the World Cup and I wasn't included in the squad anyway.
"Now that my two sons are born I can control my emotions a bit better, both the positive and negative ones. I am happy when I am outside the pitch.
"I'd like to be happier when I play, I need to score more goals in order to be happier. I was really sad a few months ago.
"I wasn't depressed but I didn't live my situation very well."
Morata, who has now scored in back-to-back Premier League games, actually changed his shirt number from No.9 to No.29 following the birth of his twin sons. His wife Alice delivered his children on July 29 and so the 26-year old made the alteration to mark the date.
