Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata missed an open goal against Bosnia

Chelsea & Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata doesn’t help himself sometimes.

A few weeks ago Morata was receiving shedloads of praise after Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 3-1 in the Premier League.

Morata spearheaded Chelsea’s victory that day scoring a brace.

The Spanish striker has scored five goals in the league this season, which is more than Man United’s Romelu Lukaku, and just three goals less than top-scorer Sergio Aguero.

Yet, the feeling remains that Morata continues to struggle in front of goal.
