“Just sell him” – Chelsea fans aim furious abuse at £58m superstar after “horrific” performance against Manchester United

Posted by

Chelsea fans took to social media to aim a flurry of abuse at Alvaro Morata following a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

The defeat leaves Chelsea rooted to fifth position in the Premier League with Tottenham, Liverpool, Man United and Man City all currently ahead of Antonio Conte’s side.

Willian had given Chelsea the lead on the 32nd minute after finishing off a superb counterattacking move.

However, Romelu Lukaku scored his 13th goal of the season in the Premier League to give Manchester United a vital equaliser on the 39th minute after superb build-up play from both Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez.

On the 75th minute substitution Jesse Lingard gave Manchester United a winner when he latched onto Romelu Lukaku’s cross.

Chelsea fans were understandably distraught with the dropped points, especially after initially being ahead.

Alvaro Morata is struggling for Chelsea this season.

Supporters turned their frustration to Alvaro Morata, who was given the nod over Olivier Giroud today, to suggest that the Spaniard’s performances have been far from satisfactory.

Morata looked isolated throughout and was even snubbed by Conte during Chelsea’s midweek clash with Barcelona; with Conte preferring to start Eden Hazard as a false nine rather than field Morata in the starting eleven.

Chelsea fans suggested that Morata’s Stamford Bridge career should come to an end before it has even really started and lamented that Diego Costa should have never been sold to make-way for Morata who sealed a move from Real Madrid for £58m in the summer from Real Madrid. (Fee per the Telegraph)
