Batshuayi denies he laughed at Morata's penalty miss against Arsenal

Morata upped to 10/1 to win PL Golden Boot!

The Belgian appeared to be caught smiling by the television cameras when the Spaniard smashed his spot-kick wide of the post in the shoot-out at Wembley.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois also missed the target with his effort, with the Gunners converting all four of their penalties to win 4-1 after a 1-1 draw in normal time.

It was summer signing Morata's first competitive appearance for the Blues, with the 24-year-old striker replacing Batshuayi as a second-half substitute.

But after accusations that he was mocking his team-mate, the former Marseille forward has felt the need to clarify his stance on the matter.

He tweeted: "Wow lol some people really believe I laughed at my teammate and/or us losing ? Sorry to disappoint but I wasnt."

Chelsea now turn their attentions to the Premier League, with their first fixture of the 2017-18 campaign coming against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
