Chelsea travel to Championship side Norwich City in the third round of the FA Cup at Carrow Road on Saturday, and Blues fans have demanded that striker Alvaro Morata starts.
Considering the Premier League holders are coming up against opposition from the division below, Antonio Conte may well consider making a number of changes and bringing fringe players like Michy Batshuayi into the starting line-up.
The Italian boss will certainly be thinking about either dropping or resting Morata after the Spain international missed three one-on-one opportunities in the 2-2 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, but the Stamford Bridge faithful seemingly aren’t keen for that happen.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on the 25-year-old via social media, and while one said “Morata has to start”, another said “Morata needs to start, bang a few goals in and gain confidence”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

I actually think Morata and Batshuayi should both start today. They both need some goals for their confidence, even if it's against Norwich.

Hazard is doubtful, Morata needs to start, bang a few goals in and gain confidence. It's a no brainer
