Alice Campello posted a video on Instagram on Sunday which showed Morata lifting and carrying her during a dance routine.

The striker, who joined Chelsea from Real Madrid for a club-record fee last summer, was criticised by fans for the video as he has missed the club’s last four fixtures with a back problem.

But Morata now claims that the footage is old and has revealed that is available for Chelsea’s clash against West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening.

‘It’s [an] old video,’ Morata posted on Instagram.

‘I’m not injured, I’m OK for the game tomorrow. A lot of critics now.. but no problem for me!’

Last week, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was unable to put a timescale on Morata’s recovery.

The 25-year-old also angered fans with an interview in Spain last week as he suggested that he would welcome the chance to return to Real Madrid.

‘Obviously I have to respect Chelsea, who made a huge effort to sign me and I’m very happy here,’ he said.

‘But Madrid will always be Madrid for me.’
