The Spanish international cost a massive £60 million to buy from Real Madrid last summer, but has so far failed to hit the heights everybody expected of him.
I remember some Madridistas cursing Zidane on my TL cuz Morata left.
& I remember them getting mad when I said "he got 2 chances to play for Real Madrid it's a mistake to leave the best squad in the world who makes u look world class"
Look at him now 😂pic.twitter.com/wDwbUpmlgm

He’s spent more time on the subs bench than he probably imagined he would but he was handed a start in his favourite role of central striker in tonight’s game with Sean Dyche’s high-flying side.
But Morata didn’t look at his best throughout, and not only did he fail to find the net, he managed to miss several excellent chances – including a gilt-edged one-on-one with Nick Pope.
With the Blues looking to keep alive their faint hopes of still finishing in the Premier League’s top-four this season, every point counts, and Morata’s display hasn’t gone down well, to say the least:
WE COULD HAVE BEEN WINNING 2 FUCKING 1 BUT NOOOO FUCK OFF MORATA

This Morata is as useless as Buhari. Just occupying space for nothing. #BURCHE

Morata was visibly angry on the touchline when Antonio Conte hauled him off on 70 minutes, and with the FA Cup semi-final against Southampton looming on Sunday, it looks unlikely that he’ll be trusted for such a big game.
Should Chelsea cut their losses and sell Morata this summer?
