In recent Chelsea history, the number nine shirt has brought bad luck to those players who have worn the cursed number, take for example Fernando Torres who failed to score for his new club on the first 14 attempts.

However, Morata will be looking to put an end to this Chelsea curse when he makes his debut for the Blues against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.


  1. If the No 9 is cursed as some fans may be thinking, then we remove the curse in the name of Jesus who lead chelsea to victory last year. This year we are going to record another amazing results, this should be the positive side of CFC fans.

  2. There’s nothing like a cursed no 9 shirt,it depends on d individual, his form and age. We’ve had players with other nos that didn’t do well in CFC as well. Its been a coincidence that recently we’ve had players that have past their prime, or couldn’t blend with d coach philosophy of play, or better still that couldn’t cope with d pressure of playing for CFC, or that couldn’t blend with the pace of premier league etc, wearing d no 9 shirt. I’m positive about our new recruit, he’ll do well.
