Real Madrid's 2-goal Alvaro Morata: Of course I want to play more

Real Madrid's two-goal Alvaro Morata admits he expects to be playing more.

Morata, a target for Chelsea and Manchester United, struck twice in victory at Granada on Saturday.

"Did I expect to play more? Sure, but I'm always ready for the coach when he needs me and that is the most important thing," he explained.

"I would like to play every minute of every match, as everyone does, I always want to go and score goals yet I am aware there are times when this isn't possible.

Karim Benzema remains the club's first-choice starting striker despite the increasingly concerning inconsistencies within his game, yet he actually has a worse goal haul than the summer signing, something that the former academy graduate is eager to ignore.

"This is something for other people to talk about, not me, I don't care if I score more goals than a teammate, I just want to score and I have 20 which is a good number."
