Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata got social media trolling after his several misses in the 1-0 victory over Australian side, Perth Glory in pre-season on Monday. When Chelsea paid £58m for Spanish International Alvaro Morata, his signing was heralded on social media as a match made in heaven and a better replacement for Diego Costa who was to return to Spain.
A year later, he has been deemed a ‘miss’ by some fans following his awful performance in front of goal last season. This trend has continued in the team’s first match of the pre-season tour far away in Australia leading to heavy lashing by followers on social media.
Jorginho was like "take am, oya give me back, you, take am ya papa nyash, give me back, you over there take am, Morata, you never touch ball? Take" and thus the ball was lost.

Is it possible to sell Alvaro Morata at half-time?

Main things to take from this first half:
1. Callum Hudson-Odoi is absolutely incredible at football. Better than Messi.
2. Jorginho is absolutely remarkable with his feet. Prime Zidane.
3. We need to sell Morata at Half-Time. Spanish Heskey.
4. Sarriball is off and running. pic.twitter.com/jbe3JsLVa4

I know it's pre-season, but Morata is like the Karius of strikers.

Tammy did more in his first 3 minutes than Morata did in 60. If I speak, I am in big trouble.

Morata is easily the worst Chelsea player

Morata can't be our main striker this season….
No wonder Sarri wants Higuaín

Tammy Abraham, in 3 minutes, has done more than what Morata did in the first 60+ minutes.

This will not be the first time. Last season, Morata was heavily criticized on social media after his several misses in the 2-2 draw at Arsenal on January 3.
