“Awful selection” – These Chelsea fans question Maurizio Sarri decision as Chelsea star dropped for Cardiff City clash

Maurizio Sarri made the decision to drop Alvaro Morata for Olivier Giroud this afternoon, as these Chelsea fans were quick to question his decision. 

Morata has struggled for form ever since his move to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid last summer, and it seems like Sarri has already had enough.

The Spaniard has only scored once so far this season, as the Blues sit joint second in the Premier League alongside Watford.

The Spaniard’s less-than-impressive displays for the west London club may have played a part in Sarri choosing to drop him for today’s Premier League clash against Cardiff.

The Welsh side are hardly the most difficult side Sarri’s men are going to play this season, and this game could’ve been the perfect opportunity for Morata to score some goals and get his confidence back.

However, it seems like Sarri isn’t taking any chances with the 25-year-old, and has elected Giroud to lead his side’s attack this afternoon.

Here are a few select tweets from Chelsea fans question Sarri for his decision to drop Morata today.

And in fairness, we sort of agree with them…
