Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata misses a penalty as fans despair


Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata has never found it easy.

He joined from Real Madrid, after nearly getting a move to Manchester United and dying his hair red yet ending up at Chelsea, and it looked so rosy at the start.

Yet after a few goals and some impressive headers in the box, injury issues and the fact Antonio Conte isn’t the easiest man to work with ended up making Morata’s life quite difficult.

The trolls were out in force last season and he became a laughing stock at times – missing chance after chance and never really looking like he could replace Diego Costa.

Chelsea landed Olivier Giroud in January and he became their number one forward with many people expecting Morata to leave this summer, yet with Gonzalo Higuain looking like moving to AC Milan and Chelsea focusing on keeping Eden Hazard, Morata is staying – for now.

Then, he missed a host of chances and a penalty against Arsenal – and Twitter was out in force once again.
