CHELSEA ace Alvaro Morata bought himself a secret lucky tattoo in a bid to end his goalscoring drought.

The Spaniard ended a run of the 13 matches without a goal when he struck in his side's FA Cup quarter-final win over Leicester last weekend.

Morata, 25, was in need of some inspiration after boss Antonio Conte had left him out of the starting line-up for over a month.

So the £60million club record signing headed to the renowned tattoo artist Scott Maclaren who has a reputation of inking Premier League stars.

Alongside team-mate Davide Zappacosta, Morata got a piece of artwork on his hand - although it is unclear what it is.

He was then snapped showing the Italian wing-back another tattoo that appears to read 'Alice', the name of his stunning wife.

Fulham Tattoo, where a host of stars head for their artwork, wrote in Instagram: "We had the please of tattooing Chelsea's Alvaro Morata a few weeks ago.

"He asked us to keep it quiet until he scored again as he thought the new tattoo would bring him some luck, so after his goal last weekend here it is.

"Top, top bloke and we all enjoyed talking football with him. As you can see we all enjoyed talking football with him."

Morata thanked Maclaren by gifting him a signed shirt to hang up with the rest of the collection in his store.

Maclaren has tattooed the likes of Eden Hazard, Jose Mourinho and Nathaniel Clyne - as well as Sun man Joel Fox - as his reputation continues to grow.

Opened in 1976 by his father Terry Maclaren, has welcomed guests such as the Beckham's, Filipe Luis and Jermain Defoe.
