Watch: Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata Commits One Of The Worst Misses Of The Season Vs. Arsenal

Morata Chelsea

Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata wasted a gilt-edged opportunity to give his side an early lead against Arsenal at the Emirates on Wednesday night.

The two London rivals are in Premier League in action with three points at stake in the battle for the Champions League places, but the visitors should have been a goal to the good in the early stages.

With 14 minutes on the clock, Victor Moses’ long ball somehow split the Arsenal defence, down primarily to an error from the nervous Calum Chambers, sending Morata clean through on goal. Seemingly with the goal at his mercy, the Spanish international instead somehow steered the ball not just wide, but very, very wide of Petr Cech’s goal.

An open game (which has become something of a characteristic of Arsenal’s matches against other top six sides recently) has also seen Thibaut Courtois make a brilliant stop to deny Alexi Sanchez at the other end, the ball going on the hit one post before rolling along the line and hitting the other.

At the time of writing the score remains 0-0, but it would be a surprise if it finishes that way.
