Chelsea fans tore into Alvaro Morata following a dismal display against Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.

Morata found the back of the net against Arsenal last week. We hoped that could be the confidence boost he needed in order to go on a goal-scoring run and reaffirm his credentials to be Chelsea’s starting striker.

He didn’t.

Newcastle were sitting incredibly deep, it will have been hard for Morata to find pockets of space. However, his touch was loose and he might as well have not been on the field of play. It was another dismal performance from the Spaniard.

Chelsea fans’ patience with Morata has run out. Very few have time for him anymore. Having endured a season of his shortfalls, we had hoped not to witness much more.

Unfortunately for us, Morata has a lot more dross in the tank. We really want to get behind him, but it’s getting increasingly hard to do so. Not just for us, but for many more Chelsea fans. Have a look at this…
