Leicester City captain Wes Morgan was hailed as one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League last season but he has since been exposed as pretty awful.
That is because a referee clamp-down on touchy-feely defenders has rendered Morgan practically useless at defending set-pieces.
Morgan stood motionless this afternoon and allowed Diego Costa to cruise away from him to score the opening goal at Stamford Bridge.

Morgan – who last season would have simply grabbed hold of Costa – stood spectacularly still.
You wouldn’t think it was possible to stand still spectacularly.
But just look at how awful Morgan’s movement is.
Was there glue on that penalty spot?
