Morata was once again the scapegoat as fans hit out at the Chelsea’s £75m summer signing after failing to register a goal against Burnley. Chelsea needed a late winner from Super Eagles star Victor Moses to claim an important 2-1 victory to move closer to Tottenham.
Chelsea took the lead via an own goal by Long in the 20th minute, but the host leveled the scoreline via a controversial goal in the 64th minute before Moses fired home the winner five minutes later.
Morata continued to struggle in his first season at Chelsea and it is obvious majority Chelsea’s fans have lost faith in the Spaniard’s ability. Taking to Twitter, the fans have pointed out Morata, insinating he is the major reason Chelsea have had a bad season. Some went as far as openly regretting missing out on re-signing Lukaku who joined rival Manchester United last summer.
Some top tweets below:
Morata cost Chelsea £75 million pounds.
You could buy 300,000,000 Freddo’s with that amount of money.
I know which one would be more useful…🐸

Wow, Morata is absolutely appalling. He literally can’t finish. Comparing him to Lukaku was a moment of madness, and all Chelsea fans are embarrassed by it. We now realise he is in fact the Spanish Pato. Sorry for any offence caused.

Who is Morata angry at? Did Burnley fans stop you from scoring the 4 opportunities you’ve had

Romelu Lukaku has now scored a career best of 27 goals in one season. And some were try to compare him to Lacazette and Morata. Only going to improve, too. A great debut season at Manchester United.
