Chelsea fans were overjoyed with the news that Antonio Conte had dropped Alvaro Morata ahead of their Premier league clash with Manchester City.

Morata was left out of Conte’s starting eleven with the Italian opting to instead start Eden Hazard in a false nine position with Willian and Pedro supporting the Belgian in a front three.

It is not the first time that Morata has found himself left out of a huge Chelsea fixture.

Less than two weeks ago Morata was snubbed by Conte during their first-leg tie with Barcelona in the Champions League.

Alvaro Morata has been snubbed yet again by Antonio Conte

Conte once again opted to start the same front three as he has chosen for the Manchester City fixture with his decision largely paying off last time as Chelsea gained a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge and were only undone by a Lionel Messi effort.

Morata has struggled to find form recently and has been disappointing despite signing from Real Madrid for £58 in the summer. (Fee per the Telegraph)

N’Golo Kante was also left out of this weekend’s starting eleven with the Telegraph reporting that the Frenchman was recovering from illness.

Chelsea fans took to social media to express their joy at the news that the Spaniard Morata had been left out of today’s starting eleven.
