Morata continues to struggle but the real problem is the pressure on his shoulders

Morata mustered up just one shot on target before being subbed off in the 86th minute, was twice caught offside and dispossessed three times, and perhaps most worryingly of all completed less than half of his attempted passes.

I could do well there, let's be honest.

The worst thing about him is not the fact that he sucks, but that he has this most whiny look on his face when he throws himself to the floor looking for fouls. About as annoying, and unlikable, as Costa was trying to pick fights with everybody.
That's really bad

I wasn't expecting this kind of reaction from him

He is making a habit of doing all the time, I feel that even when he is right the referee just ignores him

What was his issue today? Missing one on ones like the Arsenal game? I've missed the game!

Yeah he has been horrific recently but the formation of the team don't do him any favours either. I thought we would moving towards more possession based football this season but the reality has been quite the opposite. I think that's what he thought as well when he signed the contract. Costa would be FAR better in this current style of football we play.

I think we will get the best out of him if we stop playing this 3-5-2. The formation is so easy for the defence to restrict Morata. I prefer the 3-4-3, you have the wingers providing balls in and the defence have more attacking players to try to cope with. When you play with a 3-5-2, we don't have the threat of wingers and the creativity relies on Hazard and Fabregas doing everything. It does not help that Alonso is not an explosive LWB to provide the crosses Morata needs and Moses cannot cross for the head level for his life.

Morata has been poor though, make no mistake about it, however think Conte needs to change the formation, especially in these home games to get the best out of his striker. The 3-5-2 formation is just so laboured and a more defensive strategy imo.

I don’t think Costa would. I remember too many times where he received the ball and ended up just dribbling into the defense and giving it away. His physical presence would be more useful though.

The 3-5-2 is rather predictable, which is made even worse by having average WBs, as you mentioned there. Stop Alonso and Moses, which is hardly hard, and there goes our width and all our play will go through the middle, which again makes easy for the opposition to contain us.

The fomation has nothing to do with the easy chances he is missing, and the formation has nothing to do with how weak he is and why he's constantly falling to the ground.

It's simple, he need to man the fuck up because as it stands now he's broken both mentally and physically.
