The Belgian striker appeared to be caught on camera mocking his Blues team-mate but he has taken to social media to deny that was the case

Michy Batshuayi has denied mocking Chelsea team-mate Alvaro Morata after his penalty miss in the Community Shield defeat to 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.
