Morata scored his third goal for Chelsea since his club record move from Real Madrid to open the scoring.

And the Chelsea star took to his Instagram page to post the above photo and dedicate a message to the club's staff.

Chelsea wasted no time in condemning the sick song and pleaded with their support to ditch it.

He added: "I think it is very important to see this player is improving step by step and improving his weaknesses".

In celebration of Morata's display, sections of the travelling support at the King Power Stadium were heard to sing: "Alvaro, oh, Alvaro, oh".

The 27-year-old won both the Championship and Premier League title during his five-year stay at Leicester and was joined in the English capital by Italian defender Zappacosta.

After the game, Morata tweeted: "Since I arrived, I have been able to feel your support every single day, you are awesome and I'd like to ask you to please respect everyone!"

Alvaro Morata on TwitterGreat win in a hard field!

Antonio Conte was delighted to see Morata hit the back of the net again, but his link-up play was the most pleasing aspect for the head coach.

Conte told the BBC's Match of the Day programme: "We must be delighted because we had a good performance".

But the hosts gave themselves a great hope getting something meaningful in the encounter when Chelsea goalie Thibaut Courtois brought down Jamie Vardy in the 60th minutes in which the referee blew a penalty.

'I'm feeling good but we are not in first place, which is the most important thing, so we must keep working'. Then if he scores I'm very happy.

Craig Shakespeare feels that his Leicester City side are going through an unlucky period at the moment. The usual game was not enough for Leicester and they lost 2: 0.
