Arsenal’s thrilling 2-2 draw with Chelsea was one of the games of the season – but not everyone left the Emirates satisfied with their night’s work.
Alvaro Morata had one of those nights where nothing goes right, spurning three brilliant chances that had fans wondering if Roman Abramovich really spent £58m bringing the him to Stamford Bridge.
Early on, Morata had the perfect chance to steady his nerves when played clean through. He steadied himself, took aim… and pushed the ball wide of the far post.
But he wasn’t done there. After the break, he fired wide when again one-on-one against Petr Cech – a miss that had manager Antonio Conte tearing out what remains of his hair.
And in stoppage time, Morata completed his hat-trick when he fired straight at Cech.
It was a miserable night – made worse for the fact ex-Chelsea man Diego Costa scored on his Atletico Madrid debut. Twitter was as unsympathetic as ever.
