Chelsea secured a narrow 1-0 win against a lowly Swansea City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, but Blues fans weren’t impressed with Alvaro Morata’s performance.
The Spaniard was once again handed the striker’s spot by manager Antonio Conte for the visit of the Welsh outfit after scoring nine goals in all competitions this term, but like last Saturday against Liverpool he couldn’t find the net despite a number of decent chances coming his way against the Swans.
Antonio Rudiger did score for the hosts 10 minutes after the break to ensure that the west London outfit maintained third position in the Premier League table, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all winning as well.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on Morata’s display via social media, and while one said “he has to do better as a striker”, another simply labelled him as “average”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Morata seemed a foot of the pace tonight #cfc

Salah on ? with a brace. Meanwhile #cfc laboured to a win against poor Swansea. Conte's team have become really drab. Morata poor. SMH

I’ll just say it now while we’re winning so that when we’re losing ppl don’t say I’m using him as a scapegoat. Morata is average. Decent at most. Nowhere near as good as Costa, but, he could get there eventually #cfc
