Alvaro Morata & Romelu Lukaku
Two of the leading strikers in the Premier League have had problems with fans’ songs this season.
At Man United, there has been plenty of chat about Lukaku’s new chant.
The song has been labelled as racist, as the Man United fans stand accused of using stereotypes when singing about Lukaku’s penis.
As for Morata, he’s had problems with his Chelsea chant.
Originally the fans were singing a song that was anti-Semitic. The lyrics went:
“Alvaro Morata, he came from Real Madrid, he hates the f***ing Yids”.
“Yids” – is an anti-semitic epithet in relation to Spurs.
Goals for the Chelsea, Man United forwards
On Saturday, Morata was in top form for Chelsea.
The Spanish striker scored a hat-trick in a 4-0 away win at Stoke.
The result confirmed that Chelsea are in the title mix with Man United and Man City.
Man City beat Crystal Palace 5-0 on Saturday, while Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal as United won at Southampton.
Morata’s new song
During the Stoke game, Chelsea fans unveiled their new Alvaro Morata song. The words are:
“Alvaro, woaaaaah, Alvaro, wooooaaah. He comes from sunny Spain, he’s better than Harry Kane.”
Kane, for the record, scored twice for Tottenham on Saturday in a 3-2 win at West Ham.
After the Stoke game, Antonio Conte made a special mention of the new Morata song.
Conte thanks the Chelsea fans for their support and says he and Alvaro Morata appreciate the new song for our Spanish striker.
