Morata out of Chelsea squad for Man City: Sarri explains it

by -

Alvaro Morata was surprisingly left out of Chelsea selected squad to face Manchester City tonight: the Spanish forward had some really disappointing performances in the last few games, so it is possible the former Real Madrid striker was sent to the stands because of his lack of form.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri explained his choice:

“I guess we needed someone up there to have more pace and speed, so Pedro plays as a 9 today: I preferred to bring Olivier Giroud on the bench, it’s a tactical choice, Morata is not injured”.
