Chelsea fans loved Morata’s display on return to first team

Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final tie against Leicester was Chelsea’s biggest game of the season and Antonio Conte plumped for Alvaro Morata to lead the line.

Olivier Giroud had been getting the nod but after he missed chances in Chelsea’s last domestic match, against Crystal Palace, it was the Spaniard – valued at ยฃ58.5m by Transfermarkt – who got the nod.

He repaid Conte’s faith in him with a first-half goal, taken with surprising confidence for a man who has struggled for form and confidence in recent months.

That could prove to be a turning point for a man who enjoyed such a good start to his Stamford Bridge career and Chelsea fans will certainly hope that is the case.

The FA Cup is now their only chance of silverware and having been drawn against Southampton in the semi-finals, they have a great chance of making the final.

The Chelsea faithful took to social media to react and we’ve taken a look at the best of the reaction…
