Morata is finished at Chelsea – they need to start looking for a new striker, says Liverpool legend Carragher
7th December 2018

The Spaniard missed a sitter against Fulham at the weekend – and not his first of what has been a difficult season so far.

The Spaniard has netted seven goals in 21 games so far this season for the Blues – but according to Carragher that isn't good enough.

In his column for The Telegraph, Carragher said: "The reality is I do not think that Morata will ever click at Chelsea, and I am sure the club think that too

“They have to be looking now for a new option next season.

“He is 26 and his career statistics tell you that he had not played many full seasons – 34 appearances in Serie A for Juventus in 2015-2016 is his highest league total. Chelsea cannot wait.

“With a first-rate striker this would be a team capable of challenging City.

"All Chelsea’s title-winning sides have had great strikers – Drogba or Diego Costa – and this team needs one desperately.”


Fans immediately took to Twitter to berate the forward, with one saying: "If it were left to him [Morata] to repopulate the earth, humans would go extinct!"

Meanwhile, Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham is having a whale of a time at Aston Villa- this week alone the striker found the back of the net six times.

The 21-year-old banged in four goals for Villa in their mid-week 5-5- thriller against Nottingham Forest, one in their derby against Birmingham and one in their win over Middlesbrough.

Which has led to Chelsea fans demanding for Maurizio Sarri to recall the young star and get rid of misfiring Morata.

Given Abraham's red hot form, it's no surprise the Chelsea faithful are calling for Maurizio Sarri to bring him back.

One said: "This is an absolute joke. Tammy has been proving himself for too long while our main strikers have been pure s***. Time for a call-up @ChelseaFC?"

Another posted: "I'm sorry but Tammy Abraham has to be better than Alvaro Morata."

Against Fulham, Morata missed a golden opportunity when he came on in the 71st minute of the West London derby.

Within a matter of seconds he made his mark- Eden Hazard fired a shot which was saved by Sergio Rico, but the deflection fell into Morata's path.

The striker was just six yards out and instead of tapping the ball into the back of the net, he hit the volley with his shin and sent the ball flying into the stands.
