Performance needed: These 2 reasons are why Chelsea’s misfiring striker needs a big game tonight

Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are loving the unbeaten run in the Champions League this year and are hoping for another three points tonight.

The Blues could all but secure their passage into the knockout stages by going one better than last time and picking up another three points against Roma who, as our landlord remembers, they drew 3-3 with last time the teams played.

The Chelsea team have had a little wobble of late and the fixtures are coming thick and fast which is proving difficult for manager Antonio Conte to keep his players fresh and free from injury after a frustrating summer in the transfer market indeed.

One player who is looking to come back from his latest injury is Alvaro Morata. Our regulars in the Tavern say the Spanish striker has been in inspired form this season for the Blues and will want to pick up where he left off by finding the back of the net.

In his absence, Chelsea have struggled to find a suitable replacement with Michy Batshuayi looking like a player that could help change a game, rather than win one from the outright.

With that in mind, our punters have been having a chat over why Morata needs to have an outstanding game tonight…
