Chelsea kept alive their distant hopes of finishing in the top four of the English Premier League on Saturday, producing a superb comeback to beat Southampton 3-2 at St Mary’s.
Finding themselves two goals down with just 20 minutes remaining, substitute Olivier Giroud sparked a ferocious three goal blitz in just eigh minutes to put them on the path to all three points.
Up to that point it was a fairly dreadful performance from the Blues, showing little in attack before Giroud was subbed on in the 61st minute.
It was Alvaro Morata who started the game and fans hated his display, believing he might not be good enough to lead the line for Antonio Conte’s side going forward.
With just two goals in 2018, has he had too many chances in the Chelsea starting eleven? Should Giroud replace him between now and the end of the season?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
In a nutshell, let Morata go back to Juve, keep Giroud #CFC

Giroud should start every Chelsea match. How does Morata makes the cut is beyond me. #CFC

If Alvaro Morata was as consistent with his goalscoring as he is with his daily happy birthday wishing instagram stories he'd be deadly. Needs to be dropped. #cfc

Conte has been very very unfortunate
Morata dismal form actually cost him the season and his job
