He told Cheslea magazine: “When I was seven or eight, I got a trampoline. My dad used to say to me all the time, 'come on with the head' and then pass the ball to me as I jumped.

"I really think it's helped my heading game because I practiced this all the time with my dad.

“I found it funny when I was little to jump high and head or kick the ball, but it helped me for the future as well because the aerial game is one of my good points."

Morata has scored nine goals in the Premier League this season five of which have been with his head.
