Alvaro Morata had to score.

The Chelsea striker was put clean through on goal against Burnley with just a stranded Nick Pope to beat. He looked up, steadied himself, picked his spot… and blasted the ball wide.


For those who didn’t watch the match, here’s how it went down:

1. Morata gallops into the Burnley half unchallenged

2. Surely he can’t muck this up

3. Absolute sitter…


To make matters worse for the £60m summer signing, Burnley were celebrating an equaliser just minutes later (although Victor Moses eventually spared his blushes as Chelsea came away with a 2-1 win).

Friends and family of Alvaro, look away now…
