'Useless', 'Disgraceful', 'FFS' – Chelsea fans fume at one player after shocker v Soton
Chelsea are having a wretched end to their season but did come back to secure an unlikely win against struggling Southampton in the Saturday lunchtime game.
Southampton started in the drop zone and Chelsea in fifth but you’d have been forgiven for getting the two teams mixed up today.
The Southampton players and fans were up for the fight – something you couldn’t say about Chelsea, and their fans were particularly critical of striker Alvaro Morata.
The £60million-man has scored 11 Premier League goals this season, but only one in his last nine and he rarely troubled a Southampton defence today.
Since their top-four spot was effectively put out of reach, Chelsea have put out a string of disappointing performances, and Morata has seemingly lost his mojo.
One fan said it was unbelievable that Morata was keeping Olivier Giroud out of the team and lots of fans complained about him falling over too easily and complaining to the ref.

Southampton went two goals up but there was a big turnaround when Morata went off, with Giroud scoring twice to secure the three points for Chelsea.
Here are the best reactions from disgruntled Chelsea fans:
Its beyond belief that useless and bang out of form Morata can keep Giroud out. Proves Conte did not want Giroud. https://t.co/j8XzfGLjCl

Another Predictably Pathetic and Poor half of football from Chelsea
So called leaders Conte and Cahill look like the can’t be bothered.
Azpilicueta and Morata would rather pick fights!

Morata has been poor. Can’t hold the ball neither is he making any runs. Bring on Giroud & whip in those crosses in the box

No.. nowhere on paper was morata a good signing

About at my limit with Morata. Not for his lack of goals either. It’s the petulant moaning that starts less than 10 mins into every match. CBs know they have him in their pocket mentally. Grow up, push on, lead the line. #SOUCHE

I’m so sick of Morata, and I really don’t care if we sell Hazard or Courtois anymore

Who spends more time crying? Morata or my baby nephew……..

Having Morata up front in this formation simply gives up all hope of hold up play, he is quite simply hopeless
