Fucking hell this thread has become pathetic. 

The conditions couldn't have been worse for a debut performance. But he gave Chelsea fans something to be positive about. Well done, son.

This thread is beyond pathetic. People are actually calling him Torres #2 for 20 minutes of play where he was completely isolated upfront and a penalty he missed. What would you expect Morata to do in

I'm glad Morata returned to his normal self today. Not scoring goals, and being a clown.

The sooner we get rid of him, the better. Don't want another transfer window going by and Chelsea thinking, "Morata's on the ball lately! Let's not worry about the CF position".

Yes Morata was his usual uninspired and disinterested self (against Everton).

But that's NOT the story today! We played like shit and Morata was just one of the poor performances. Was also disappointed with Sarri today... too slow (to make changes) and conservative.

He was in offside too many times, and he fell a bit easily sometimes. But some of those were actually almost penalty calls. I don't see any big "misses" or I don't know. Many players were rubbish in this Everton game, a lot more than Alvaro.

We aren't going to do shit in the January window, I can already sense it.:(

Bats has been absolute shit at Valencia, he is tracking to SIX goals in 45 games!!

We are so fucked at CF

Sarri needs to maybe move Hazard over to a Mertens role

Its about the only thing I can think of atm

this game was very disappointing at pretty much every level save Kepa and the CB's

Even Hazard looks like he is regressing

we need much more training time than we are getting

We have to try it.  Willian on the left, Hazard at CF, and Pedro on the right.  

I've been banging on about the training time.  I think we were very fortunate to get the results that we were getting at the start of the season.  We were improving, week after week, but since playing 2 matches a week for the past month or so, it's kind of stopped.  Our play is too slow and not sharp.  It's a lot of passing, but no movement, ATM.  The 3rd man runs that make up the vertical element of Sarri's vertical tiki-taka are not there yet, or when they do make the run, players aren't making the pass.

We knew it was going to be a work in progress.  Unfortunately, we won't really get that quality training time until January.

Moving Hazard up front means losing your key player and getting little in return. He's not a great finisher either... we are talking about a game where we did not create much. The best chance in the game was actually his (Eden's), and he put it wide. 

Hazard scores goals because of his overall skill, but you put him up front and he will vanish, because he will be more easily contained (lack of spaces to move into).

I know you are looking for solutions, but we have none until Jan. If the two we have aren't enough we will need to sign players. We just don't have any player in the squad who can switch to a false 9 role, IMO.

The same would have been said about Mertens before moving to CF.  

In the end we can all speculate and say, this would work, or that wouldn't work, but we can all realize that our CF situation is not good right now. 

So, all I'm saying is to try it, how much worse could it be than watching Morata ask the ref to help him out in every tough match?  If it doesn't work, back to square 1.

Curious. Who would you say was worse than him yesterday?

Jorginho and Willian. Kovačić in first half. Suspicious about Kante too. There are players which didn't screw up like Morata, but didn't do anything good either, and that's same shit for me.

Perhaps, but my point remains that the ‘test’ has a cost, and it could be a high one.

It’s not like we have wingers of edens quality lying around...

Sure.  But everything has a cost, including standing pat.  I just believe that Willian is a better winger (on the left) than Morata is a striker.  I think Eden is dangerous wherever he plays as he works best in a free role.

Next match against Spurs, might be asking for too much in such a high stakes match.  But, at some time, if Morata continues to disappear.

I wouldn't say they were worse, but

Azpi (pathetic going forward)

Jorginho (one of his few bad games, probably his worst)

Kante (regressed, one of his worst games in new position)

Barkley (sub)  little to no impact, shite passing (our biggest issue all game)

Willian (probably worst, even more so than Morata)

Pedro (sub) lots of running, little end product

Hazard  looks tired and beaten down physically, the thugball is taking a toll

were all poor, some very poor (Willian, Azpi, Kante, Morata)

Kepa, Luiz, Rudiger (MOTM), Alonso (unlucky to not score), Kovacic (our only MF with any sort of vertical thrust, especially in first half), and Cesc (sub) were oki

This makes me more astounded that Sarri decided to run him down straight after recovering from injury, against a fucking nobody team in EL away. What was he thinking?? Was it absolutely necessary? While CHO is rotting away, travelling along but playing useless minutes... 

I like Sarri's style and demeanor, but his squad management has been questionable since taking over.
