Chelsea host Leicester City in the English Premier League this afternoon knowing that three points are an absolute must after drawing their last three matches in all competitions.
The Blues find themselves a point behind Manchester United in the table and know failing to win will likely see them fall further behind with the Red Devils set to play Stoke City at Old Trafford on Monday.
Can they produce a performance that will delight the home supporters?
One player fans want to see turn it on against the Foxes today is Alvaro Morata.
The Spaniard has failed to score in his last four matches and has just three in his last 10 appearances. They’re looking for him to find the back of the net today and kick start another consistent run of form, with important matches on the horizon over the next six weeks.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their hopes for him ahead of kick-off…
Big performance today Chelsea
Hopefully Morata turns up and Vardy doesn’t show him how to finish #UTC

Today will be the day Morata will score. In fact he will score a brace and get an assist.

Good test for Chelsea today against Leicester. First minutes for Barkley ? Morata with a goal ? A must win in order to keep the pressure on United. #CFC
