Alvaro Morata’s lost his place at Chelsea, it seems. He’s been injured over the last week or so, but in his absence, Eden Hazard has thrived as Chelsea’s new number 9.
The Belgian put in brilliant performances against the likes of Man City and Brighton in the role, and now the Spaniard faces a fight to regain his place.
Whether he gets his place back this weekend remains to be seen, but Maurizio Sarri has confirmed – as per the official Chelsea Twitter page – that he’s back in training. Though this is not proof that he’ll be available for selection this weekend, it’s fair to say that he’s clearly on the mend.
Chelsea fans, however, have been as ruthless as ever online. In response to the news, a number of Chelsea supporters are clearly hoping that Morata stays away from the first team. Clearly unimpressed by his performances, most appear happy for the Spaniard to continue sitting out.
See what they’ve had to say below…

He better not bring morata in… I think Morata should be released in January… He simply has nothing to offer Chelsea.. He’s not getting any better
